MediaTek has just unwrapped the company’s first mmWave modem called the M80. It is capable of clocking a peak download speed and upload speed of 7.67 Gbps and 3.76 Gbps respectively. It is an upgrade to the previous M70 modem and gets support for both sub-6 GHz and mmWave.
It supports 5G on both sims and both sims can be connected to NSA or SA networks. In addition, both sims can perform calls across Voice over New Radio (VoNR). It features Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DDS), which will allow carriers to provide 5G by combining both 4G and 5G in areas where it doesn’t have a dedicated band for 5G connectivity.
UltraSave Network Environment Detection and UltraSave OTA Content Awareness features will manage the power consumption of the modem by measuring usage and network conditions. In the later part of the year, different OEMs will receive the sample M80 modem for them to run tests. This modem can be used not only in smartphones but also in laptops, Wi-Fi hotspots and other devices. At the moment the company has not revealed which SoC will be the first to feature this modem.
