MediaTek introduced its MT6739 chipset today at India Mobile Congress 2017. The high-speed quad-core SoC is perfect for India's rapidly growing 4G market.
The MediaTek MT6739 features an advanced WorldMode LTE Cat.4 modem to bring latest 4G LTE functions to Indian consumers. It also carries support for dual cameras and displays with the aspect ratio of 18:9. This 64-bit processor is comprised of four ARM Cortex-A53 with the clock speed of up to 1.5GHz. The main features offered by the chipset are down below:
Support for multiple networks: The MediaTek MT6739 supports dual VoLTE and Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) with either 4G+4G (L+L) or 4G+3G (L+W), meeting future-proof needs as 2G networks are progressively retired.
Support for 18:9 display: This chipset allows smartphones to have the latest 18:9 display with HD+ resolution.
Innovation at the fore: New connectivity technologies including eMBMS, HPUE, and 600MHz LTE frequency are all supported.
