5G enabled flagship smartphones have been emerging in the mobile industry this year – thanks to Qualcomm’s chipset. While Samsung has first introduced its 5G Galaxy S10 series, OnePlus has recently announced its new OnePlus 7 Pro 5G in the European market. Both these devices are powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855 SoC and the chipset maker’s X50 modem, which supports 5G connectivity. Samsung also makes its own 5G chipsets as well. After, Qualcomm’s successful 5G chipset being in the market already, another chipset maker MediaTek is all set to launch its 5G enabled chipset later this month.
The Taiwanese-based chipset maker has announced its new 5G chipset, which is said to be AI-powered as well. And, the chipset is said to be smart and fast with the 5G connectivity and the company’s AI prowess. The teaser also suggests the upcoming 5G AI chipset from MediaTek is said to be arriving in May, meaning we can expect the launch of the chipset within a week or so.
Earlier, there have been reports suggesting MediaTek’s upcoming 5G enabled chipset supposedly built on a 7nm process, and the chipset will also be more capable than the current MediaTek’s Helio P90 SoC, which is built on a 12nm process. The chipset had already announced its Helio M70 5G modem earlier.
As for the upcoming new 5G chipset is concerned, it is said to be equipped with Helio M70 baseband chip as stated earlier, which is designed to support the sub-6GHz band and can also support 5G independent networks as well. According to the teaser released by the company on Weibo, it is pretty evident the company is promoting the new chipsets AI capabilities as well. This might be similar or might be an upgraded independent AI processor APU 2.0, which has been featured on the earlier released Helio P90 chipset. And, lastly, the name-game of AI-powered 5G chipset from MediaTek isn’t still clear, we can expect the SoC launch by the end of this month. Stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more such interesting updates.
