MediaTek has announced its latest 5G system on chip (SoC) – the Dimensity 800U. The 7 nm Dimensity chipset has been built to deliver multi-core high performance.
MediaTek has launched a new chipset Dimensity 800U that will provide 5G connectivity to mid-range smartphones. The Dimensity 800U is the latest addition in MediaTek’s Dimensity series family. The 7nm Dimensity 800U chipset is designed for multi-core performance and 5G+5G Dual Sim Dual Standby (DSDS) technology. The chipset manufacturer claims that this chipset will accelerate the rollout of 5G technology on mid-tier 5G smartphones.
The Dimensity 800U with 5G support comes with octa-core processor with an integrated ARM Mali G57 MC3 GPU that takes care of the graphical workload. The company says the Dimensity 800U offers “ultra-connected dual 5G chip that balances immense CPU speeds with an efficiency-focused design.” It is based on 7nm architecture and supports up to 120Hz displays.
The Dimensity 800U chipset is built on the 7nm process and has an octa-core CPU with a dual cluster consisting of two Arm Cortex-A76 processors with a clock speed of 2.4GHz and six Arm Cortex-A55 processors with a clock speed of 2.0GHz. Dimensity 800U integrates an Arm Mali-G57 GPU, an independent AI processing unit (APU) and LPDDR4x RAM.
The new chipset will support 120Hz FHD+ displays as well as the HDR10+ standard for better visual quality. The chipset will also offer support for flexible camera placement with up to 64MP cameras and quad camera capabilities. Along with that there will be support for voice on wakeup (VoW) and dual-mic noise reduction technology, which will help lowering the standby power consumption of a voice assistant.
