Windows 10 phones will soon start using MediaTek chips

Posted by

If you have been watching, you would have noticed that most recent Windows phones come with Qualcomm Snapdragon chips. Performance-wise, this is good no doubt, but it has somewhat affected prices of Windows phones.

MediaTek chipset

In a recent development, a new device was launched during CES 2016 and it was powered by a chip other Qualcomm. The device in question is a tablet – The Pipo U8T, and it runs a Rockchip RK3288W SoC chip. Rumours from WinFuture claim that Windows 10 devices are now ready to support MediaTek chips.

This is good news, owing to the more expensive nature of Qualcomm-based devices. Hopefully, we can expect to see cheaper Windows Phone devices in the future.
