MediaTek, the world’s fourth largest global fabless semiconductor company, has reiterated its commitment towards providing new-age technology solutions to enable the rollout of future ready smartphones in the South African market. MediaTek announced the launch of its premium gaming chip, MediaTek Helio G95, along with its offerings across the spectrum, including G90T, G85, G80, G70, G35, and G25 chips.
Aimed at the premium 4G gaming smartphone segment, the semiconductor company has associated with global smartphone brands such as Xiaomi, Oppo and Infinix to launch up to ten premium, feature-rich smartphones, powered by MediaTek Helio G series, in 2021.
“South Africa is our top Smartphone market in Africa with annual shipments expected to grow towards 15 million in contrast to some decline globally. We have been actively enabling Africa with our innovative chips with the aim of facilitating transformative technology in the region and will continue to do so” said Rami Osman, Director, Corporate Sales and Marketing, MediaTek Middle East and Africa. “MediaTek’s Helio G-Series is the latest generation in our Helio family of chipsets for smartphones that will continue our commitment to 4G connectivity and the adoption thereof. MediaTek is collaborating with OEM and telco partners across sub-Saharan Africa to offer mainstream and premium gaming smartphones with the latest technologies to consumers and promote digital inclusion across the region. Moreover, MediaTek is currently collaborating with MTN and Vodacom South Africa who have plans to accelerate the deployment of their 5G networks. In parallel to 5G network deployment and testing we will need to make the terminals ready by bringing our Dimensity 5G series for premium and flagship smartphones and our T750 5G modems for a much faster mobile and fixed broadband access.”Click below to share this article
