MediaTek Inc. announced today that it is the first Soc partner for GMS Express, which is a program designed to provide approved Android software solutions. GMS Express allows the provision of services including Google Mobile Services (GMS) and Google Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) certification, to smartphone manufacturers.
MediaTek being GMS Express's first SoC partner can help device makers get to market more cost effectively and faster without having to risk the standards of the quality and consistent consumer experiences with Android applications and devices. Under the new program, MediaTek provides device makers with a pre-tested, pre-certified, and fully compliant build of Android and GMS. For the past several months, MediaTek has already worked with several of its customers in connection with GMS Express.
TL Lee, General Manager of MediaTek's wireless business stated, "MediaTek is focused on making great technology available to everyone. This program supports the entire Android community and ensures that from the program's OEM participants and their devices within the program, only pre-tested and certified Android builds appear in the marketplace to give consumers the confidence they have a secure, first-class Android experience. Being the first SoC company endorsed for GMS Express reinforces MediaTek as a full hardware and software solutions provider to help brands improve time to market and user experiences with Android devices."
Jim Kolotouros, VP, Global Android Partnerships at Google stated, "Android has enabled a healthy ecosystem of diverse OEM manufacturers who deliver compelling devices at all price points throughout the world. We are excited by MediaTek's leadership in connection with the GMS Express program, and enabling the OEM ecosystem to develop high-quality devices more quickly, more cheaply, and more easily."
