MediaTek is powering LG Optimus L4II phone with the world’s first triple-SIM technology for 3G Android smartphones.
LG Electronics recently launched Optimus L4II smartphone in Brazil.
MediaTek’s triple-SIM technology is mainly targeted at emerging telecom markets.
Like dual-SIM phones, 3G Triple-SIM technology allows for three SIM cards to be used simultaneously.
Each can receive calls, transmit data, send SMS messages and remain in standby mode concurrently without consuming excessive battery life, the Taiwanese company said on Thursday.
“Thanks to its technology, our new smartphones will significantly expand the connectivity options of our customers, and in so doing allow them to take advantage of multiple tariff plans,” said Brian Kwon, head of Product Planning Group from LG Electronics.
The 3G Triple-SIM technology enables end-users to directly adjust or turn off the multi-SIM function if and when desired.
“With our long line of exciting new products in the works, we expect to bring many more affordable-premium mobile device solutions to emerging markets and others in the near future,” said Jeffrey Ju, GM of MediaTek’s Smartphone Business Unit.
MediaTek recently launched its dual-core smartphone platform. Mobile users can expect hundreds of commercial models powered by the MT6572 beginning in June.
