Mediatek has recently announced a new chipset called Dimensity 800U, which is a chipset designed for mid-range smartphones. The selling point of this chipset is that it brings 5G connectivity to such phones. Tye chipset is based on 7nm architecture and is a part of the ongoing Dimensity family of SoCs, which include another chipset like Dimensity 720, 820, 800, 1000, and 1000+. The 800U comes with high specs and powerful performance.
The chipset is an octa-core with ARM Cortex-A76 cores, which can be clocked to a maximum of 2.4 GHz and a six-core Cortex A-55, which can be clocked to a speed of 2.0GHz. The chipset will also support the ARM Mali-G57 GPU for graphics, which is also equipped with independent AI and APU. The chipset will support dual 5G sin standby and dual VoNR (Voice over New Radio), sub-6GHz NSA / SA networks, and 5G two carrier aggregation (2CC 5G-CA).
The chipset is not power-hungry and will have the Mediatek 5G Ultrasave technology onboard, which is present in most of their new chipsets. It also manages the operations of the modem based on the network environment and data transmission quality for improving the battery life of mobile devices. The chipset includes LPDDR4x RAM (up to 2133MHz) and UFS 2.2 storage, and a support full HD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It also has HDR10+ and MediaTek’s MiraVision PQ engine with HDR optimization.
The chipset will be able to support a 64-megapixel sensor and four rear-facing cameras. The chipset is promised to deliver 11 percent and 28 percent faster CPU and GPU performance than the 720 chipsets in Density series. The new chipset will be available for the global market in a couple of months and will have features like multiple trigger words for the different voice assistants, dual-mic noise reduction, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, and Bluetooth 5.1.
