MediaTek, the Taiwan-based global fabless semi-conductor leader has introduced its MT6739 chipset at India Mobile Congress 2017.
The high-speed quad-core System on Chip (SoC) is built for India’s rapidly growing 4G market. The MT6739 features an advanced WorldMode LTE Cat.4 modem, dual camera photography and 18:9 display support to bring latest 4G LTE functions and large, beautiful phone designs to the mainstream users.
MT6739 is a quad-core 64 bit ARM Cortex-A53 processor and operates up to 1.5 GHz. The chipset delivers a package of superior features for entry-4G smartphone users in India.
The chipset supports dual VoLTE and Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) with either 4G+4G (L+L) or 4G+3G (L+W), meeting future-proof needs as 2G networks are progressively retired.
The chipset supports new connectivity technologies including eMBMS, HPUE and 600 MHz LTE frequency are all supported.
“Consumers expect smartphones to do more than ever before. That’s why we designed the smartphone chipsets with features to let you share, do and capture more and at the same time plug in less,” said Dr. Finbarr Moynihan, General Manager of International Corporate Sales, MediaTek.
“Our latest offering in India allows OEMs and ODMs to create 4G-entry smartphones that deliver premium features that provide high-end value at affordable prices,” added Moynihan.
In addition to MT6739, MediaTek is also introducing its Helio P23 chipset to India. The recently launched Helio P23 delivers performance and power efficiency, dual-camera photography, dual-SIM and dual 4G VoLTE capabilities, supporting the explosion of innovation in the mid market.
MT6739 and Helio P23-enabled devices will be available in India and the global market by end of this year.
