Samsung has selected Atmel’s maXTouch mXT336S to power the touchscreen of its recently launched Galaxy S4 Mini smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core processor and runs the Android 4.2.2 operating system. It features a 4.3in high-definition super AMOLED display. The mXT336S controller is said to deliver the ultimate human touch interface by enabling thinner stylus and thicker glove support, more touch precision and fewer unintended touches, along with lower power consumption for longer battery life, brighter displays and faster response times.
Binay Bajaj, director of Touch Marketing, Atmel Corporation, said: “Our popular maXTouch mXT336S controller enables Samsung to achieve superior touch performance, thinner sleeker designs, higher moisture immunity, lower touch latencies and support for stylus and surface gestures. We look forward to an ongoing collaboration with Samsung.”
