At the recently organised China Mobile Global Partner Conference in Guangzhou, MediaTek’s first 5G baseband chipset Helio M70 was unveiled to the domestic market following its initial launch mid-year. The MediaTek Helio M70 is a multimode chipset with 2G/3G/4G/5G-enabled support.
The first look of Helio M70 proves it supports key 5G technologies including standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) network architectures for faster connectivity.
The Helio M70 is among the industry’s first wave of 5G multi-mode integrated baseband chipsets, cementing MediaTek’s status as a leader in the 5G era. In line with the booming 5G market and the enhanced mobile experience brought by high-speed networks, the Helio M70 will bring new momentum to the 5G device market over the coming year.
It supports 5G radio (NR), along with the standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) network architectures, the sub-6GHz frequency band, high power user equipment (HPUE), and other key 5G technologies. It’s designed in compliance with the 3GPP Rel-15 new specifications with 5 Gbps data rate, leading the industry to support carrier aggregation.
“MediaTek is committed to promoting the adoption of the latest technologies. With the commercialization of the first 5G baseband chipset, Helio M70, consumers will be able to enjoy the exciting 5G experience from a mature and complete solution,” said TL Lee, general manager of MediaTek Wireless Communications Division. “In the future, 5G and AI application areas will continue to grow, enhancing the connected experience for users in areas such as mobile phones or smart living.”
Partnering closely with China Mobile in 5G development, MediaTek supports 5G standards development and testing. It is also helping build an industry ecosystem, to help global operators achieve their 5G network roadmap goals in 2019.
Thanks to its multi-mode solution, the Helio M70 simplifies the design of 5G devices with a comprehensive power management plan, enabling device makers to design mobile devices with a smaller form factor, improved energy-efficiency and competitive appearance.
With the Helio M70 baseband chipset, MediaTek brings new 5G network solutions to partners and customers to promote the sustainable development of the 5G industry.
