MediaTek Dimensity

MediaTek has been competing with Snapdragon chipsets these days, at least in the budget and mid-range segments. The G series has been performance-focused and trades blows with Snapdragon 600 and some 700 series chips. Today, MediaTek announced another chipset, under the Dimensity series, called the Dimensity 800U which has 5G support, aimed at the mid-range segment. Let us check the specifications of the same.

Dimensity 800U Specifications

The Dimensity 800U is an octa-core chipset with two ARM Cortex-A76 cores that ticks at up to 2.4 GHz and six Cortex A55 cores that clock up to 2.0 GHz. For graphics, it comes with ARM’s Mali-G57 GPU and is equipped with an independent AI processing unit.

The 5G modem supports 5G+5G dual sim dual stand, sub-6 GHz NSA/SA networks and, 5G two-carrier aggregation. There is MediaTek 5G UltrSave technology onboard that manages the operation of the modem based on the network environment and data transmission quality for better battery life.

Devices featuring the Dimensity 800U can include LPDDR4x RAM and UFS 2.2 storage. The SoC supports Full-HD+ displays with 120 Hz refresh rates. It also supports HDR10+ and MiraVision PQ engine with HDR optimization. The IPS of the SoC supports up to 64-megapixel image sensors and as many as quad cameras for the rear module. There is also support for Bluetooth 5.1, dual-mic reduction and Wi-Fi 802.11ac

In comparison to the Dimensity 720, the 800U is designed to deliver 11 percent faster CPU and 28 percent faster GPU. The chip is yet to be used in other devices as of now, so, we will have to wait for a phone equipped with the Dimensity 800U to experience the performance in normal situations.
