MediaTek’s Helio M70: Announcement, 5G Modem Updates

MediaTek’s Helio M70: Announcement, 5G Modem Updates”

Elsewhere, MediaTek's 5G SoC will also come with support for camera sensors with up to 80-MP resolutions and speedier AI processing thanks to the chip's third-gen APU. Now when 5G is coming, the company didn't want to miss a chance.

MediaTek seems to want to go all-in now with its new SoC, integrating both of Arm's highest performance CPU and GPU designs, as well as the company's own 5G modem. This has led to MediaTek's chips either not having competitive performance at the high-end or causing overheating issues in mobile devices.

MediaTek today announced the launch of its MediaTek 5G chipset at Computex 2019, one of the largest IT conferences in Asia. The 5G SoC is its answer, and MediaTek's Senior Director Russ Mestechkin said the chip and its, "No compromise, best in class, and superior to the competition".

The company will sample the new chip to customers in Q3 this year, and it should arrive in devices in the first quarter of 2020.

Let's talk in detail about the 5g modem. Supports more advanced AI applications, including for imaging like de-blur so users get great shots even when subjects are moving fast. The Cortex -A77 is a follow up to ARM's A76 CPU and features improved efficiency in addition to a newly redesigned architecture, and if past releases are any indication, this may be the same CPU core we see in Qualcomm's next flagship chip later this year. Added to this is ARM's recently debuted Cortex-A77 processor and Mali-G77 GPU to take care of the heavy lifting.

The M70 modem supports 5G NR in the sub-6GHz spectrum with up to 2x carrier aggregation. But it also means it will not work on all 5G networks from carriers such as Verizon Communications Inc and AT&T Inc that use millimeter wave technology. Besides the hyped 5g modem, we don't have much information on the chipset.

The ultimate winners of MediaTek's entrance into the high end 5G chipset market are consumers as MediaTek helps spur the introduction of more 5G devices, so more people can access great technology. What is divulged however is that the chipset is built on TSMC's new 7nm process-node, and integrates MediaTek's own Helio M70 modem IP. Companies collaborating with MediaTek on RF technology include Oppo, Vivo and top-tier RF suppliers like Skyworks, Qorvo and muRata.
