K-Touch selects Broadcom Android smartphone platform

USA: Broadcom Corp. announced that Chinese cellphone manufacturer K-Touch has chosen Broadcom's latest 3G HSPA+ platform – the BCM21663 – for its new W68 Android-based smartphone.

Powered by a dual core Cortex A9 processor, Broadcom's platform enables K-Touch to provide customers with an entry-level smartphone that can perform at faster speeds and operate on China Unicom's growing 3G network.

As more users adopt smartphones, particularly in emerging markets, the demand for low-cost devices that deliver robust functionality is on the rise. According to ABI Research, smartphones with a price point of $250 or less (before carrier subsidies) will make up 46 percent of all global smartphone shipments by 2018, up from 28 percent in 2012.

Leading mobile brands such as K-Touch have chosen Broadcom's 3G platforms to deliver affordable smartphones that feature powerful graphics and application processing, advanced HSPA+ and dual-SIM dual standby capabilities, and wireless connectivity technologies including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM and GPS.
