Global fabless semiconductor company MediaTek is continuing to expand its footprint across the smartphone and smart device ecosystem in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.

The company, which powers nearly two-billion connected devices a year, also aims to accelerate its collaboration with original-equipment manufacturers and telecommunications operators across the MEA region to increase digital adoption and promote growth across verticals.

“MediaTek is a market leader in the global semiconductor industry with a leading position in smartphones, fifth-generation (5G) fixed-wireless access (FWA), WiFi, television (TV) and artificial intelligence (AI)-Internet of Things (IoT),” says MediaTek MEA business development director Rami Osman.

Speaking at MediaTek’s flagship interactive technology discussion series, MediaTek Technology Diaries, in Dubai, he said that MediaTek powers some of the biggest brands globally and is committed to delivering innovative products and solutions across smartphones, smart devices, automotive, satellite connectivity solutions and next-generation wearables.

The portfolio includes MediaTek Dimensity for 5G smartphones, MediaTek Helio G series for fourth-generation (4G) gaming smartphones, MediaTek Kompanio for arm-based Chromebooks, MediaTek Pentonic for smart TV technologies, MediaTek Genio for IoT, MediaTek Filogic for smart WiFi 6/6E and WiFi 7 solutions and MediaTek Dimensity Auto for innovative automotive technologies.

“Here in MEA, we are working to bring these technologies to the local industry by collaborating with the regional technology and telecommunications players driven by three major focus areas in our strategy,” says Osman, referring to connectivity, smartphone and AI-IoT.

“We aim to unlock innovation in consumer electronics and telecommunications industry verticals.”

In connectivity, a combination of the company’s T750 or T830 5G FWA CPE chipsets and Filogic WiFi 6 or WiFi 7 chipsets enables faster Internet connectivity into homes and businesses and empowers operators to transform and elevate their FWA services and enhance the consumer perception of these services.

“In the smartphone space . . . our focus remains on bringing consumers better variety in the premium and flagship range, while maintaining support for the migration initiatives from feature phones to smartphones.”

“Finally, in AI-IoT, new frontiers are being explored, new cellular technologies that serve use cases better are being tested and we are already testing RedCap 5G and look forward to collaborating with regional satellite and telecom operators to bring the value of nonterrestrial networks to the AI-IoT ecosystem.”

MediaTek showcased, at the forum, some collaborations from the MEA region, including Airtel 5G CPE powered by MediaTek T750, Xiaomi 13T Pro powered by MediaTek Dimensity 9200+, Xiaomi 13T powered by MediaTek Dimensity 8200-Ultra and HP Chromebook x360 powered by MediaTek Kompanio 1200.
