MediaTek Dimensity 800U SoC announced with support for 120Hz display and 5G

MediaTek Dimensity 800U is built on 7nm process and will allow OEMs to launch more affordable mid-range 5G phones

  • MediaTek Dimensity 800U is a mid-range 5G mobile chipset
  • The SoC supports full HD+ display with 120Hz refresh rate
  • The chipset can handle LPDDR4 RAM and UFS 2.1 storage

MediaTek Dimensity 800U 5G has been announced as a mid-range mobile chipset. This 7nm SoC supports 5G + 5G Dual SIM Dual standby technology, sub-6GHz SA and NSA networks, dual Voice over New Radio (VoNR), and 5G two carrier aggregation (2CC 5G-CA). Thanks to UltraSave technology, the modem’s operating mode is managed based on the network environment and data transmission quality, thereby extending the battery life of mobile devices. The Dimensity 800U is an octa-core CPU with a dual cluster comprising of two ARM Cortex-A76 processors clocked at 2.4GHz and six ARM Cortex-A55 processors with a clock speed of 2.0GHz. It is integrated with Mali-G57 GPU, an independent AI processing unit, and LPDDR4 RAM.
