Malik informed that MediaTek is all set to bring 5G devices in India when the time is right. “When there will be a development in India regarding 5G, we will bring the 5G solutions with the help of our OEM partners in the country. We have a strong portfolio of 5G chipsets, which is selling good in European and Chinese markets. We have a well-established capability for bringing 5G to India. When there will be a spectrum auction in India and operators will start testing the 5G network, we will work closely with them to launch 5G solutions in India,” he said.
