MTK Pump Express to charge smartphones 45% faster than regular ones

With battery problems still plaguing smartphones right now, despite all the advances in technology, everytime a new product, be it a phone case, an external battery, a power bank or a chip, comes out that will promise us better charging or battery life, then we pay attention.

MediaTek is the chip company that paved the way for faster mobile devices when it introduced the octa-core mobile processor back in 2013.

Samsung believed to be in talks with MediaTek

That decision makes senses but we're hearing reports that Samsung is in discussion already with MediaTek--a long time rival of Qualcomm.
