InvenSense gets a mic win with Gionee +2

InvenSense has announced that Chinese manufacturer Gionee chose the InvenSense ICS-40720 microphone for best-in-class audio in its flagship S8 phone.  The press release makes it sound like InvenSense EIS (electronic image stabilization) software might be used in the phone as well.

It's hard to see this moving the needle for INVN in a big way, but Chinese consumers often lead the pack on feature selection.  If consumers worldwide start paying more attention to audio quality and actually using phones for calls, this could be the start of trend.  That may have to wait for network providers to upgrade their operations, however.
