ZTE Plans to Develop In-House Mobile Processors; The First Model Is Waiting for Certification
After Huawei, now it seems that ZTE plans to launch a own mobile processor too, as we get to know today through a new DigiTimes report. According to some Chinese rumors, ZTE has stepped up its efforts to internally develop smartphone chipset solutions, in order to re-capture the title as one of the top-three smartphone vendors in China.
We get to know that the Chinese company has rolled out more than 80 communication chips such as wireless baseband chips, router chips, STB chips and RF chips over the years, so a possible mobile CPU will be pretty easy to develop.
Apparently, ZTE’s first in-house processor for smartphones and related OS has been approved for registration online by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, also known as MIIT. At the moment, ZTE’s sales of mobile devices have been gaining some points recently.
