MediaTek announces 4nm T800 5G Thin Modem for Industrial IoT, M2M, and always-connected PCs

Sharing is caring!

During the annual summit, MediaTek announced the new 4nm T800 5G Thin Modem. This is designed for applications other than phones.

While most phones that launch nowadays are 5G, many connected devices have not advanced as fast for connectivity. Even now, there are not many 5 G-equipped always-connected PCs. The new T800 5G modem should help change this.

The new modem supports download speeds of up to 7.9Gbps and upload speeds of 4.2Gbps. It then uses UltraSave power efficiency technologies to preserve battery life.

There is support for both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G.

It will also support dual 5G SIMs but this is dependent on the OEM.

Full Press Release

MediaTek is taking 5G applications and experiences to the next level with the new T800 chipset solution for sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G networks. This fast and power efficient 5G solution follows the introduction of MediaTek’s T700 5G modem, and will drive innovative 5G “beyond smartphone” applications such as Industrial IoT, M2M, and always-connected PCs.

“Consumers today want the ability to access 5G speeds from anywhere. MediaTek’s newest 5G chipset solution allows end users to enjoy high-speed, low-latency 5G wherever they are – offering true computing freedom,” said JC Hsu, Corporate Vice President at MediaTek. “The T800 stands out with super fast, reliable 5G speeds in a highly efficient design that maximizes battery life for an all-around great user experience.”

MediaTek’s cutting-edge T800 solution supports download speeds of up to 7.9Gbps. The T800 packs MediaTek’s latest 5G UltraSave power-efficiency technologies to optimize battery life for all 5G connection conditions, allowing users to browse, stream and game for longer.

The T800’s highly integrated design helps lower development costs and provides time-to-market advantages. The chipset solution features a thin modem with a fully integrated 3GPP Release-16 5G cellular modem, FR1 Transceivers, an Envelope Tracking (ET) chip, a MLNA, a GNSS receiver and associated PMICs. The thin modem is built on an advanced 4nm process node and also integrates PCIe + USB host interfaces, plus other input/output options.

Key features include:

  • Download speeds of up to 7.9Gbps and upload speeds of up to 4.2Gbps.
  • Support for both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G.
    connections up to 4CC-CA, plus mixed duplex FDD/TDD support.
  • Support for dual 5G SIM (DSDS), depending on device maker requirements.


MediaTek is committed to bringing 5G everywhere. The company’s advanced portfolio of 5G technologies delivers fast and reliable 5G to fixed wireless access routers, mobile hotspots, PCs, smartphones, tablets, vehicles and beyond.
