Dimensity 800: the new MediaTek processor to democratize 5G in the mid-high range

At the end of December, MediaTek Dimensity 800, the new processor of the Chinese company, leaked in a presentation. The objective of this platform is to bring 5G technology to medium-high range proposals. With the Helio G90 that we could test in the Redmi Note 8 Pro, they showed that MediaTek was far from heating and poor performance, and the company has taken a good turn with its hardware proposals.

The Dimensity 800 is presented in the framework of the CES 2020, as a proposal with integrated 5G modem, 7nm manufacturing process, and views of the first mobile phones that release this processor are commercialized in the first half of this year 2020.

The Dimensity 800 series focuses on mid-high-end devices. It is a processor that integrates a 5G modem from MediaTek, and that promises low energy consumption.

The chip is designed to support both SA (stand-alone) and NSA (non-standalone) networks, under sub-6GHz. Similarly, it supports 5G 2 CA (carrier aggregation) which, in other words, translates as a solution to offer more speed by aggregating signal carriers. Similarly, the processor offers support for services such as VoNR (Voice over New Radio). The new MediaTek processor brings better in the ISP and at the level of energy efficiency, in addition to wanting to democratize 5G in the mid-range

On a technical level, the Dimension 800 is made up of eight cores. Four of them operate at a maximum frequency of 2GHz, being ARM Cortex-A76 cores. The other four cores, oriented to low consumption, are also able to climb up to 2 GHz, curious fact since the frequency of low consumption cores is usually lower. The GPU is also composed of four cores, although MediaTek does not detail its frequency.

Regarding the ISP (image signal processor) of the processor, it supports up to four cameras, with a maximum resolution of 64 megapixels. Similarly, improvements based on artificial intelligence are promised to improve autofocus, exposure, white balance, and noise reduction. Also, 4K HDR recording is supported, as long as the mobile allows it.

Finally, MediaTek indicates that the processor will be compatible with Full HD + screens at a maximum refresh rate of 90Hz. As we indicated, this processor is expected to arrive from the hand of new terminals to Europe in the first half of 2020.
