MediaTek, the rival of Qualcomm today announced it’s confident of making technology accessible more accessible to the users. The company stated that nearly one in three smartphones are powered by MediaTek chipsets. “Consumers may not know it, but our chips and technology are an integral part of daily lives. You will find us in 20% of homes globally and nearly one in every three mobile phones is powered by MediaTek. However, the company did not reveal its partnership with Xiaomi and whether the Chinese company will launch MediaTek chipset-powered devices in India.
“MediaTek chips power next-generation smartphones, tablets, TVs and voice assistants and all kinds of intelligent devices to transform how people interact with each other,” Kuldeep Malik, Director-Corporate Sales, MediaTek India, said in a statement, according to IANS.
“A new category of devices is driving features and consumer expectations forward with advancements in power, performance, AI and connectivity,” Malik added.
The chipmaker also said it is committed to delivering the latest technologies across a range of products in the mobile phone industry and automobile sector as well as health, entertainment and next-generation wearables. MediaTek’s Helio chipset series such as “A22” and “P22” are the latest additions to the Helio family power-efficient processors for the entry-level segment.
The Helio P22 fuels smartphones such as Vivo Y81, Y83 and Y83 Pro while MediaTek Helio P60 has been recently introduced with OPPO F9 and F9 Pro and Nokia 5.1 Plus. Oppo was the first one to make use of the Helio P60 SoC inside the Oppo F7, which was later on, followed by Realme to use the Realme 1. The Nokia 5.1 Plus will also be launched in India later this month at a price of below Rs 15,000. MediaTek is getting back into the game this year with the likes of Helio P23, Helio P60 and other entry-level chipsets such as the Helio A22 and Helio P22. – Telecom Talk
