Taiwanese fabless semiconductor company MediaTek reportedly moves into SoCs for Virtual Reality.

MediaTek offers a popular smartphone chip platform with the Helio series. The chips are especially popular with Chinese smartphone makers. Now MediaTek reportedly will unleash chip solutions for virtual reality.

MediaTek's R&D team focuses first on developing chips to make smartphones support Google's new virtual reality platform Daydream, according to industry sources cited by Digitimes.

Google Daydream (still find this name perfect for a VR solution) works on top of the new Android N and is suppose to offer high quality mobile VR experience. Daydream ready smartphones require high performance sensors, high density and low persistence displays and high performance SoCs.

MediaTek is actually forced to support Daydream as it will be the standard for flagship Android N smartphones this Fall. MediaTek's Chinese smartphone companies will line-up for a Daydream ready platform.

The new ZTE Axon 7 running on a Snapdragon 820 is supposed to be the first smartphone to be Daydream Ready. Google has not yet confirmed that.

Writing about virtual reality and Android always reminds me that Apple has nothing yet for Virtual Reality. It is a shame. Apple fans are completely left alone by Apple in the new virtual reality push. Maybe Apple will finally talk VR at the WWDC 2016 this month.
