MediaTek has clearly strengthened its mobile chipset efforts recently, with a clear focus on specific features and markets. After playing the Helio G90 game in July, the company turned its attention to 5G in both the more impressive and high-end segments.
Following an earlier company roadmap, the first 5G chips based on the Helio M70 modem are expected to be available in the market in the first quarter of next year. According to network sources, MediaTek will officially present the MT6885 single-chip system for relatively inexpensive 5G smartphones at the MediaTek Summit event later this month on November 26.
According to the available information, the MT6885 will combine the ARM Cortex-A77 CPU processing cores and the Mali-G77 graphics accelerator. 7-nanometer manufacturing technology is provided.
The processor will include an Helio M70 cellular modem, which will provide the ability to transfer data on 5th generation mobile networks at a speed of 4.7-5 Gbit / s. Compatible with non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) architectures. In addition, existing second, third and fourth generation cellular networks (2G, 3G, and 4G / LTE) are supported.
The chip will also receive a 3rd-generation AI accelerator. Manufacturers will be able to equip MT6885-based smartphones with cameras with a resolution of up to 80MP and the ability to record 4K video at 60 frames per second.
In terms of pricing, we’re talking about a chip intended to power the phone for about $300. Quite impressive. Mass production of the processor would have already begun and mobile developers will receive it in the first quarter of 2020.
