Recently, MediaTek enjoys unusual attention from technology giants. First, Apple has shown interest in the company’s modems, and now Google has been given permission to offer certified versions of Android and Google Mobile Services to manufacturers of smartphones..

The Taiwanese company became the first SoC (system-on-chip) manufacturer to offer official, compatible and Google-approved Android software solutions.

According to MediaTek, the initiative will help smartphone makers “get to market more cost effectively and faster and ensure high-quality, consistent consumer experiences with Android apps and devices.”

Another benefit is that the process of achieving compatibility between MediaTek chips and manufacturers will be reduced from 3 months to just 4 weeks.

Consumers can also expect more security patches on their devices. Currently, MediaTek’s chips powers more than 1.5 billion devices, such as smartphones, TVs and routers.
