MediaTek will be releasing a lot of chipsets in the year 2020. Also, the modems from MediaTek in 2019 will soon become the first in the lineup to get 5G. These will be separate modems, and as we stated, the 5G chipsets from the company will arrive in 2020. One such chipset from the company is the Helio M70. The CEO of the company confirms that the company is working on an integrated 5G chipset as well, this one will arrive later.

MediaTek is working on a 5G modem for smartphones

The M70 is a stand-alone modem, and this one is not the part of the chipset. Also, Apple may supply 5G modems to Apple, and this is because iPhones use external modem chips. Qualcomm’s 5G modems are external too. A modem integrated into the chipset cuts down the overall costs and becomes it a better buy for the small companies.

Note that a big part of the R&D department from MediaTek is now working on the 5G development and services. So, what do you think about low budget MediaTek 5G handsets in 2020? Do let us know in the comments section below.
