MediaTek intros Dimensity 800U a 5G-capable chip aimed for use by affordable flagships

Looks like the 5G future is shaping up in our very own eyes, and MediaTek has unveiled what looks like a 5G chip we might be getting in several mid-range handsets. The latest chip from the company is taking an aim at the lucrative mid-tier segment filling the shoes of its immediate predecessor the 820 that was released sometimes earlier this year.

According to Yenchi Lee, the company’s Deputy General Manager in wireless communication business unit, the chip maker had mostly focused on improving user experience for consumers with streaming, gaming and photography needs. Lee said the Dimensity 800U would bring top notch technology in the chip series aiming at bringing the company’s advanced 5G, imaging and multimedia technologies to high-performance 5G smartphones.

Phones that will utilize this chip will be able to support screen refresh rates of up to 120Hz, FHD+ panels and even comfortably render content in HDR10+. In addition, expect to see more of 64MP quad-camera setups as well as dual sim standby support in 5G+5G.

In a nutshell, the Dimensity 800U is taking a shot at the mid-tier segment and is expected to bring tons of enhancements to devices with 5G goodness, where we can have things like dual sim support with both lines getting 5G reception and some high-level processing in terms of image processor as well as the processor itself.
