MediaTek is planning to launch a 5G chipset sometime in 2019. According to a report by GizChina, the company’s CEO, Cai Lixing said that the Helio M70 5G baseband chip will be launched in the first half of next year. It should be noted that the M70 will just be the modem, and not the entire chipset. The 5G-enabled SoC should be announced sometime around the end of the year. So, one can expect smartphone powered by the new chipset only around 2020. The report adds that the company will be investing more resources in 5G. Lixing added that MediaTek’s 5G chip architecture is quite clear and fully utilized.
