Mr. Kuldeep Malik, Director, Corp. Sales, India with Mr. Kevin Keating- Global Director, Marketing answered each question by  the audience.

MediaTek is the world’s 4th largest global fabless semiconductor company. Nearly 1 of every 3 mobile phones is powered by MediaTek and you will find them in 20% of the homes globally. With aim to educate common men understand latest technology informal fun filled session was a great way to spend evening.

It was one great and amazing event, to observe the next generation technology and how it’s going to make our life easy and comfortable. The event covered following segments-

  1. Media Tek Helio A22 and P22 chipsets which, according to it, are power-efficient chips for the mid-market segment. Many Mobiles like Vivo Y81, Y83 and Y83 Pro are powered by Helio P22 while Helio P60 was recently released with OPPO F9 and F9 Pro and Nokia 5.1 Plus. It centres in providing the best-in-class camera hardware with intuitive light AI-enhancements such as Face ID, Smart Photo Album, simulated depth of field etc.
