San Francisco: Taiwanese fabless semiconductor company MediaTek has been trying to compete head-on with ace chipset makers such as Qualcomm and Huawei and it now is going to unveil its 5G chipset at a company event on November 26, media reports said.
The semiconductor firm was earlier focused on gaming and hence introduced a gaming-focus chip — the MediaTek G90 in the middle of this year.
“The chipset featured in the promo materials has the MT6885Z designation. Cross-referencing that with an earlier leak, we can assume this is the upcoming flagship-grade 7nm silicon, MediaTek is gearing-up for partners like Oppo and Vivo,” the GSMArena reported on Saturday.
Some of the suggested specifications for the MT6885 should thus include Cortex-A77 CPU and Mali-G77 CPU cores as well as sub-6 GHz frequency support, it said.
