HSINCHU, July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --MediaTek Inc., a leading fabless
semiconductor company for wireless communications and digital multimedia
solutions, today announced the world's first triple-SIM technology for 3G
Android smartphones. The cutting-edge solution, which comes in response to
widespread demand for multi-SIM devices in emerging markets, was recently
commercialized in Brazil by Optimus L4II smartphone from LG Electronics.

Building on the success of its popular dual-SIM predecessor, 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.

A key feature of the 3G Triple-SIM solution is its high level of stability,
which prevents the occurrence of dropped or poor-quality calls, and reaffirms
MediaTek's reputation as the leading producer of multi-SIM chipset

"MediaTek has long provided state-of-art solutions for multi-SIM mobile
devices. 3G triple-SIM is yet another example of that," says Brian Kwon, Head
of Product Planning Group from LG Electronics. "Thanks to its groundbreaking
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."

Beyond its pioneering technology, the 3G Triple-SIM technology also serves as
a turnkey solution for manufacturers through its built-in user interface,
which enables end-users to directly adjust or turn off the multi-SIM function
if and when desired.

"In many emerging markets, multi-SIM support has become an absolute
requirement. By creating a comprehensive total solution packed with premium
features and advanced technologies, MediaTek is not only catering to end-user
needs, but also attracting the attention of the world's tier-one device
makers," says Jeffrey Ju, GM of MediaTek's Smartphone Business Unit. "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."
