The 5G chip for mid-range smartphones!

The new Dimensity 800 processor is built under the 7nm manufacturing process. It is the first chipset of the company with built-in next-generation 5G connectivity support for future mid-range smartphones.

The octa-core chip uses 4x 2GHz Cortex-A76 power cores and 4x 2GHz Cortex-A55 efficiency cores with Mali-G77MC4 GPU. To provide better gaming experience, it has a new tech called HyperEngine to boost the hardware performance.

The chip features a cut-down DRAM interface with only 2-ch (2x16b) LPDDR4X support at up to 2133MHz, so half the bandwidth of the Dimensity 1000.

For AI-related tasks, it has the APU 3.0 tech that uses 4x AI chips to provide up to 2.4 TOPS of AI performance.

It also has LPDDR4X support up to 2133MHz, half of the Dimensity 1000 bandwidth.

The 5G has supports 2CC carrier aggregation for up to 30 percent wider coverage than older 5G solutions with no carrier aggregation. It also supports both SA/NSA sub-6GHz network and it has multi-mode from 2G to 5G and Dynamic Spectrum Sharing. It also has support for VoNR to deliver voice and data over 5G. 

For screens, it supports FHD+ screen with 90Hz refresh rate.

For cameras, its ISP supports up to 64MP cameras or 32MP + 16MP dual-cam tech. It has AI-autofocus, auto exposure, auto white balance, noise reduction, HDR, and multi-frame video HDR.

Since it is a mid-range chip and MediaTek's mid-range chip are usually more affordable than the competition, we can expect to see the Dimensity 800 inside several upcoming 5G phones.

It was previously reported that we can see this chip on OPPO, Vivo, and Huawei 5G phones in 2020.

Could this be the chip that could make 5G more accessible to the masses?
