If you do not work sit in your chair and stay connected to our page, if you work take a day off ... Obviously we joke, but the number of news / events / etc that are accumulating next Wednesday 23 April is slowly rising. If you can imagine motivation from companies like Xiaomi, ZTE and Hauwei (let's try to explain it here), because the choice of Mediatek we do not understand ...

Mediatek with the press conference the day after tomorrow intends to reaffirm its interest in the tablet, a land on which recently had left room for other companies such as Rockchip, Allwinner and so on. ee in which you want to re-introduce. The 2013 had been closed with the modest sum of 20 million MTK powered tablets, the goal for the 2014 is to reach the 40 million, difficult but not impossible! Considering that SoC, let's say, entry-level MT8312 (dual-core from 1,3 Ghz) ed MT8382 (quad-core from 1,3 Ghz) have already been shipped to companies, which the most performing MT8135 (quad-core with big.LITTLE architecture) is practically in the finishing line, the arrival ofMT8127 and MT8392 It will be a further boost for manufacturers to adopt the Mediatek chipsets.

L'MT8127 is a quad-core processor with 28nm production process, Cortex A7 architecture, 1,3 Ghz clock frequency, Mali-450MP4 GPU, 1280 × 800 (WXGA), HEVC and H.264 display resolution (1080 / 30fps video), support for DDR3 memory (667 MHz), integrated MT6627 wireless chip and 13 mega-pixel camera with video recording up to 1080p.

L'MT8392 it is basically the tablet version of the hugely popular Mediatek MT6592 for smartphones. An 8-core processor with Mali-450MP4 GPU of which, however, we still know well poco. A few months ago the Antutu test screenshot of a mysterious tablet emerged on which Mediatek's 8-core chipset was implemented.

However, tablets are not the only sector in which the company wants to increase its presence. Like a little 'all lately, even Mediatek wants to try to dive into the ground Wearable device, the so-called "wearable devices". The ready solution for this range, mainly smartwatches, and already anticipated during a conference at MWC 2014 in Barcelona is called Aster. Aster is a chip that in a very small size (5,4x6mm) integrates the SoC with ARM7 ESJ processor and GPU, as well as system memory (4MB of SDRAM), Bluetooth 4.0 LE (Low Energy) and a series of features that will allow manufacturers a high degree of flexibility.

If you want to take a look at Mediatek advances on its new chipsets, we leave you to this year's Mobile World Congress video:

We will see therefore in the future smartwatch and smartband also from Chinese producers! Hip hip hurray!
