Rumored low cost Nexus smartphone might use the 64-bit MediaTek chip

Budget Nexus Phone

A recent rumor indicated that Google was looking to launch a sub $100 Nexus smartphone for emerging markets. And a new rumor from Taiwan further expands on that report stating that Google could strike a partnership with Chinese manufacturer MediaTek to supply the chipset for this handset. It is being said that Google is looking to use a 64-bit chip for this low cost Nexus device and MediaTek has two potential candidates with a quad core CPU and a clock speed of 1.5 GHz and 2.0 GHz respectively, so Google could choose either of these chips.

But as with any rumor, we suggest you take this with a grain of salt until there’s further confirmation. If all goes according to plan, this rumored budget Nexus smartphone should break cover by the second half of the year along with a new Nexus tablet as well as the Nexus 5 successor. We’ll keep a close eye on this particular rumor and update you with any new info available.
