MediaTek is launching a 7-nm MediaTek Helio M70 multi-mode processor featuring an integrated 5G modem for high-end 5G smartphones.
MediaTek introduces a new multi-mode chipset with the MediaTek Helio M70 5G modem at Computex 2019 in Taipei. He said the processor must power the first wave of high-end 5G smartphones.
This chipset is based on the production process of 7 nm and has an integrated MediaTek Helio M70 5G modem. This distinguishes MediaTek from others, because this is the first System-on-Chip (SoC) smartphone that has a built-in modem instead of an external modem. Other chips like Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and Exynos 9820 support 5G via an external modem.
This processor contains the latest Cortex-A77 arm processor equipped with Mali-G77 GP. According to MediaTek, the chipset has the most advanced API (API) in the company that meets 5G performance and performance requirements to improve connectivity speed and user experience.
The MediaTek processor supports 4.7 Gbps download speeds and 2.5 Gbps upload speeds. The chipset supports 4K video encoding / decoding at 60 fps and a high resolution 80MP super camera.
The MediaTek processor is a 5G multimode chipset that supports 5G SA (standalone) and NS 6 sub-GHz (non-standalone) networks. This means supporting dual LTE and 5G connectivity and can provide connectivity from 2G to 5G. MediaTek believes that dynamic processor bandwidth technology provides 50% energy efficiency to improve performance and extend battery life.
In particular, the modem does not support the 5G millimeter wave network received by US operators. Other operators around the world focus on sub-6GHz 5G technology. This chipset is released in Asia, North America and Europe. In the third quarter of 2019, it will be available for leading customer samples and will be available on the market in the first quarter of 2020.
