MediaTek at Computex 2014

Today first part of the news related MediaTek at Computex 2014. And remember, yes, a few days ago I was doing you a teaser Computex by talking about its implications for Mediatek. Well this “computer show” Taipei is started and well underway, as the Taiwanese chip designer began reporting on some expected things..

 

EVERYDAY-GENIUS-MTK-ANIM

 

MediaTek presented its platform hardware and software development called “Linkit.” MediaTek clearly moving to a new dimension with elements of language focused and quite encouraging. In this case they talk about Linkit as a Software / Hardware platform which aims to boost the markets “wearable” devices but also surprise, the “IoT” initials for the Internet of Things. May be it does not speak to you? This is normal, but I’ll explain.

The platform LinkIT is actually divided into two parts, the hardware part is provided by the new SoC Aster which we told you about in the article teaser. With a size of 5.4 to 6.2 mm SoC is advertised as the smallest mobile processor solutions currently on the market. It was designed to enable the developer community to create a wide range of products and solutions at affordable prices, the trademark of MTK. voicie Aster MT2502 and some prototypes.

And this is where the IoT into dance. Because this term does not only refer to the ” wearables ” smartwatches type smartbracelet or smartglasses ! I do not know if you saw the presentations of Samsung connected to the house on the sidelines of the presentation of S5 systems. Basically, door handles connected , washing machines connected with the pub happening now on TV , but also ovens, fridges, alarm systems and small automation. All this in the context of a ” smart home ” according to Samsung. Well Mediatek and IoT is an ambition for all these types of terminals, but with more potential solutions for business , industry , sports etc etc ! Along with the announcement of Aster , MediaTek has also launched two new processors the MT7688 MT7681 and , both seeking to view the digital home . Both processors are suitable for connected home devices, but will also add a ” smart control” on household appliances in general.

MediaTek aims high and JC Hsu Managing Director and Head of Business Development at MediaTek has stated

“We want to enable an ecosystem of device manufacturers, application providers and developers to create innovations and new solutions for the super-mid market”

 

 

A super-mid market therefore includes all these varieties of new devices become possible thanks to the platform Linkit. Also according to JC Hsu, this new initiative MediaTek Labs to provide software models key reference in hand will allow developers to make their products more easily with first places the MT7688 and MT7681 SoC Aster, but in the future with all other chipsets MTK suited to this program. Mediatek wants to reach as many people as quickly as possible to allow all their users to become “everyday Genius” geniuses every day, and I I like it as a philosophy ^ ^!

This platform is a novelty in China, but not a conceptual innovation in pure sense, as already Huawei to create the beginning of the year a semi open application developers for its platform. LinkIT however is more akin to software development for man-machine interface. The real portal MediaTek Labs officially open the third quarter of this year, as to burn a little more the second quarter of 2014 which looks hot potato!

Then you’ll be a “Everyday Genius” this year?

Stay tuned for further news from Computex 2014!

For the comparison at One M8, the E8 is a bit more plastic with a slight weight gain of about 15 grams. However the chip and the audio system will be maintained to always offer the original BoomSound to be provide unparalleled strength for the device.

Barely a week has passed since Oppo announced its mini N1, the N1 5.5 inch with less advanced features but still its rotating apparatus and Find Mini 5 already on the market, it seems like the Oppo strategy mini flagship, as a variant shrink when washing the Find 7 is about to be sold and the least we can say is that it looks like his older!

The 5.5 inch screen Find 7 is the first company to have a Quad HD resolution (1440 x 2560p). But the new 7 mini Find code-named R6007 Oppo will shrink for these two characteristics.

Other specs go to the washing machine at 90 °, the CPU goes to 801 Snapdragon Snapdragon 400@1.6GHz, GPU Adreno 305, the 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and 2MP front camera. But especially the 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory, expandable with MicroSD course, we are really getting into a lower range. Find the dimensions of 7 mini 137 mm long by 68 mm wide and 7.75 mm thick make it 12% smaller than its big brother. A weight of 128 grams it loses 43 grams, but it also loses 860mAh relative to Find 7 because its battery of 2140 mAh that.

Samsung Z, the first smartphone running the OS Tizen

It had been several months since we heard about a new OS that would be developed in “joint ventures” by the Korean Samsung and U.S. Intel to equip one of their new device. Samsung Z will be the first device to be officially equipped with the famous OS Tizen owner, and therefore an alternative to the Google AOSP and TouchWizz which previously fitted to the Galaxy range.

Tizen had hitherto succeeded only reaching the Smartwatch Gear Samsung Galaxy, probably for a successful test phase, which will open the doors to a little more mature devices. Samsung Z will have a 4.8-inch AMOLED screen with HD 720p and powered by a Quad Core processor clocked at 2.3GHz that will certainly Intel brand logically graphic resolution. The device will support 2GB of RAM memory and 16GB of ROM to accommodate datas and the system. The smartphone will also have a main 8MP rear camera and 2.1Mpx in front, a 2600mAh battery and a slot for expanding your data storage with an external microSD card. Z is NFC, OTG, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi 2.4/5G and adopt a GPS Glonass (Russian satellites).
Samsung Z will be offered a new sophisticated look far unusual that might look like a pretty fun mix of Xiaomi Mi3 for its angular side and Galaxy Note 3 with its rear shell leather style and seams the Home button is always present meaning membership of the smartphone Galaxy line probably, but certainly Samsung. Samsung Z will be available in 2 colors quite original because only available in Black or color Or Samsung’s intention seems clear enough, the Z is definitely a range a little hand and a design that still denote devices that giant had achieved so far.
Samsung-Z-2
Samsung Z should be available in Korea, China and Russia by the third quarter of this year and should soon spread to other international markets. We hear also a Tizen Store should be put in place quickly to offer dedicated applications.
A little frustration at the end of this article anyway since we will not know some details like frequency supported, even if the 4G LTE Category 4 is apparently the game, or even its price or price range, that would help us to better situate the camera facing competition. Samsung will it still be at the top of the mountain or he decides to attack the face of emerging challengers. The question still remains full for a while.
