MediaTek unveils 5G Helio M70 modem, expected to ship in 2019MediaTek has a good history in achievements in the 5G realm. For example, in November 2017, together with Japanese carrier DoCoMo, it achieved the world's first successful 5G trial using smartphone-sized NOMA chipset-embedded device to increase spectral efficiency. It has also actively deployed 5G and collaborated with Nokia, China Mobile, Huawei, and other vendors. Today, At Computex 2018 in Taipei, Taiwan, MediaTek showcases its 5G data Helio M70 modem. It supports 5G NR (New Radio) and will meet the latest 3GPP Release 15 standard specification (complete specifications released in June) with 5Gbps transfer rate. Zhou Yujun, senior VP and CTO of MediaTek, mentioned that since MediaTek has invested 5G R&D time much earlier than 4G, it also participated in the 3GPP organization's standard setting and discussion in 5G. MediaTek's development of 5G products enabled MediaTek 5G modems to be launched faster than 4G ones. More information about the modem features will be available in the second half of this year and commercial availability is planned for 2019.Source
