MediaTek has seen a surge in demand of its mobile processors thanks to a number of white label and affordable smartphones flooding the market and to cater to one of its biggest markets in the world, the company has set up yet another manufacturing facility in India.
According to reports in the local media the decision by Taiwan-based chipset manufacturer MediaTek is a step towards strengthen its presence in India. The new facility has been opened in Bengaluru – India’s silicon valley.
Not just providing research and development, sales and marketing support to MediaTek India, it will also support the company’s growing business in emerging smartphone technology and other key sectors such as 5G, imaging and automotive.
“MediaTek is about making great technology available to everyone. India is a shining example of how connecting billions of people and devices can help enhance how we all live, work or play,” said Jeffrey Ju, Co-Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of MediaTek Inc, in a statement.
MediaTek’s chipsets power consumer products like cell phones, TVs, set-top boxes, DVD players, routers, tablets, fitness bands, smart watches and gaming stations.
Last month, MediaTek launched a new chipset designed to enable Voice Assistant Devices (VADs) and smart speakers, including the Google Assistant.
