MediaTek has announced devices powered by its MT6595, touted as the world' first true octa-core 4G LTE SoC, are expected to be available in the Indian market by the end of the year.
MediaTek had first announced the SoC in February 2014. The new MediaTek SoC is supposed to help boost 4G LTE expansion on in the country. According to the chipmaker, the new chipset promises a premium user experience with 4G connectivity, improved multi-tasking performance and sustained performance-per-watt.
“MediaTek is focused on delivering a full range of 4G LTE platforms, and the MT6595 is the first of many to arrive in India. Our 4G LTE solutions support all modes including TDD LTE, which is important for India because infrastructure providers in the country are currently focusing on the TDD LTE network,” said Dr. Finbarr Moynihan, General Manager – Corporate Sales International, of MediaTek.
“With a deep understanding of the Indian smartphone market, we continue to bring a premium mobile experience to consumers, and thus enable them to become, what we like to call, an Everyday Genius,” said Finbarr.
