MediaTek, according to network sources, is close to releasing a processor for entry-level smartphones with support for fifth-generation mobile communications (5G).
This is a chip with the code designation MT6853. Its characteristics have not yet been disclosed, but it is known that this product will have mediocre capabilities. Its main advantage will be the presence of an integrated 5G modem.
The price of the first smartphones based on the MediaTek MT6853 platform will be at $ 140. Moreover, in the future, the appearance of devices worth $ 120 and even $ 100 is expected. Thus, truly budget models with support for fifth-generation mobile communications will appear on the market.
It is reported that the official presentation of the MT6853 processor and the first devices based on it will take place in the near future. Probably, the announcement is scheduled for the third quarter of this year.
It should be noted that MediaTek is actively developing the direction of 5G-chips. In 2020, according to forecasts, the company will be able to sell more than 80 million processors for 5G smartphones. If these expectations are met, MediaTek will occupy at least 40% of the global market for mobile chips for devices with the ability to work in fifth-generation cellular networks.
