MediaTek has now revealed the launch of a new 5G chipset for affordable smartphones. Dubbed by the name as MediaTek Dimensity 820, the 5G chipset is designed for the global sub-6Hz 5G network in Asia, Europe, and North America.
The MediaTek Dimensity 820 chipset comes loaded with an Octa-Core CPU with four high-performance ARM Cortex A76 cores clocked at 2.6Ghz. The chipset is even loaded with ARM Mali G57 GPU. It comes with HyperEngine 2.0 that enhances the mobile gaming experience. The chipset also supports the refresh rate of 120Hz, and it even supports the HDR with MediaTek MiraVision support.
The Dimensity 820 Integrates a 5G NR (sub-6Hz) modem into this single-chip solution with MediaTek’s 5G UltraSave Technologies, including exclusive 5G UltraSave Network Environment Detection and 5G UltraSave OTA Content Awareness.
It comes with a 5G Career Aggregation Technology to deliver higher average speeds, and it offers smooth handover between two 5G connection areas.
The Dimensity 820 also supports the Dual SIM, Dual Standby 5G Technology for access to the fastest speeds, and Voice Over New Radio services on both the SIMs.
It comes with a dedicated APU 3.0 that helps in the AI camera capabilities to capture images and videos without any quality loss. It is loaded with a MediaTek Imagiq 50 ISP processor that supports around four concurrent cameras and around 80MP sensors. It also supports 4K HDR video recording. The chip automatically captures frames at different exposures and intelligently fuses them into a single video stream.
“Our Dimensity 1000 is already powering impressive flagship 5G devices in a number of markets. With the new Dimensity 820, we’re now making 5G much more accessible,” said Dr. Yenchi Lee, Assistant General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit.
