The Arrival of Affordable 5G Smartphones in India
MediaTek is all lock, stock, and barrel to be one of the first to dip into the wide pool of 5G powered smartphones in the country
5G might sound like a long way off, but MediaTek is here to make sure when it does materialize, they’ll be more than ready. One might recall their recent launches of the Dimensity series which is all set to power 5G smartphones in India. They have already started rolling out smartphones with the Dimensity chips embedded in phones like the Realme V15 5G which comes with the Dimensity 800U.
MediaTek is a Taiwanese firm which is the crusader for focusing on making high-end features available in mid-tier devices, thus expanding accessibility. You may not notice, but most devices today make use of MediaTek chipsets, especially Android smartphones. They are involved in everything from manufacturing Smart TV’s to powering smart speakers.
It appears as if Realme was not done launching smartphones in 2020, for the launch of Realme’s X7 Pro series made headlines recently. This is significant news because it paves the way for MediaTek’s Dimensity chipset to enter into Indian markets. What’s rather exciting is that these chipsets are considered powerful but at the same time they’re affordable. The Dimensity series of chipsets rivals the Snapdragon 800 series when it comes to performance.
In a market like India, a 5G smartphone would be a serious game-changer as long as there is support from the government to make it happen as soon as possible. The first major step would be to auction the 5G spectrum and roll it out countrywide. Since the 5G chipset was launched back in August of this year, companies like RealMe and Redmi have featured it in quite a number of its recent smartphone devices.
The incredibly cool thing about 5G chipsets, especially the Dimensity 800U chip, is that it functions alongside Mediatek’s 5G UltraSave technology which is a power-efficient tool offering incredible download speeds at the same time. Plus, it’s one of the most budget friendly processors out there when it comes to the Dimensity series.
