ALCATEL ONETOUCH taps MediaTek MT8127 chip for PIXI 7 tablet

MediaTek today said ALCATEL ONETOUCH has tapped its MT8127 chip for the launch of PIXI 7 tablet, which will hit the market later this year.

MediaTek said the MT8127, a quad core tablet System on Chip (SoC), supports H.265 video playback to allow videos to play with up to 50 percent less video bandwidth compared to the previous H.264 standard.

The company said MediaTek’s MT8127 tablet SoC – targeted at the Super-mid market — allows tablet manufacturers to enjoy shorter time-to-market and reduces the printed circuit board (PCB) area and related costs.

It supports MediaTek’s connectivity solutions including Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, FM receiver and GPS.

The company said the SoC is powered by an ARM Cortex-A7 quad-core processor, with a clock rate of 1.5GHz, and a quad-core ARM Mali-450 MP4 GPU, Full HD 1080p video playback and recording, and a 13MP camera. The SoC also supports Wi-Fi certified Miracast and NFC which makes content sharing between devices.

Joe Chen, general manager of MediaTek’s Home Entertainment Business unit, said: “As the Super-mid market continues to grow, the demand for high-performing yet affordable multimedia features increases exponentially. Our quad-core tablet SoC with HEVC video playback is impactful in the mid-range tablet market.”

“Combining ALCATEL ONETOUCH’s distinct design flare and visually immersive features with the power and efficiency of MediaTek’s MT8127 series chipset, means we are able to deliver a leading mid-range tablet experience for customers around the world,” said Vittorio Di Mauro, vice president and Smart Connectivity Business Unit Director for ALCATEL ONETOUCH.
