To tap talent pool

Explaining about the company’s plan, Anku Jain, Managing Director, MediaTek India, said, “India holds an important place as a market and also in terms of the talent pool. We have about 650 people in R&D in India and looking at growing it further.”

Jain stated that the headcount in India could go up to 800 people in the R&D team and added that the team in India works on global as well as India-specific products.

He further said that MediaTek is focusing on 5G and artificial intelligence (AI) for its product lineup and the team in India is contributing towards the same.

Hardware designing

For the company’s flagship P90 product, some of the hardware designing was done in India, he informed.

Helio P90 is a 64-bit ARM LTE system-on-chip (SoC) introduced by MediaTek in 2018 and incorporates AI powerhouses available in a smartphone.

Smartphones containing the P90 are likely to reach the Indian market in the second half of 2019.

The P90’s processing power would be four times as compared to the previous generation product. The product will enable features such as 3D pose tracking and faster face unlock, among others.

Smartphone manufacturers such as Vivo, Oppo, Nokia and Realme have introduced devices that are powered with MediaTek chipsets.
