5G modem chipsets will be key pieces for modern smartphones and Media Tek has recently produced an interesting chipset known as the Helio M70. The new 5G modem offering will officially ship in 2019 and features the unique ability to be easily built on top of 4G infrastructure. This allows the Helio M70 to automatically connect to 5G frequencies when transmitting data, while still connecting to 4G networks when the device is carrying out other activities.

This approach to 5G modem chipsets allows the Helio M70 to stay grounded with current technology, while still providing users an aspect of future tech. Media Tek worked closely with a number of smartphone manufacturers, network operators and telecommunications equipment suppliers to develop this chipset. The work with these companies has also allowed Media Tek to contribute to the standardization of 5G network technologies.
