MediaTek Dimensity 920 set to bring all-round brilliance to 5G smartphones

MediaTek has launched its MediaTek Dimensity 920 chipset, and the SoC is all set to take the smartphone market by storm. The 5G-capable chip delivers plenty of upgrades apart from enhanced performance. Not only it contributes to the company’s already strong efforts to bring 5G to the people, but it will also ensure that high-end features become more accessible. If you’re wondering what’s new in the Dimensity 920 chipset, here are all the details.

Boosted gaming performance and power efficiency

The MediaTek Dimensity 920 is a fully loaded SoC and has everything that’s needed to offer top-tier performance not just for daily tasks but also for gaming. Based on the 6nm production process, this chipset delivers improved performance and reduces power consumption. The octa-core processor onboard this chip is home to two ARM Cortex-A78 cores clocked at up to 2.5GHz and six ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at up to 2GHz.

Thanks to all this, phone manufacturers can now better cater to gamers who enjoy long, lag-and-stutter free sessions on demanding games like Battlegrounds Mobile India. The chipset’s strong ARM Mali-G68 GPU also has a big hand to play in this department. Gaming is further enhanced by the presence of the MediaTek HyperEngine 3.0 technology on this chipset. This version adds several connectivity enhancements that are aimed at offering uninterrupted gaming sessions while reducing power consumption. Take, for instance, its Networking Engine 3.0 feature, which searches and connects to the lowest latency cell tower available to minimise online ping.

Speed is also a priority in the other aspects of the MediaTek Dimensity 920 chipset. It provides support for the fastest UFS 3.1 storage and integrates LPDDR5 memory. This combination will make a vast difference in the user experience that phone makers will be able to provide to their customers. Faster multitasking and quick transfers will readily be at their disposal. With this chipset onboard, users won’t have to think about any performance issues hampering their smartphone use.  

Incredible connectivity with dual SIM 5G and Wi-Fi 6

MediaTek has made sure to keep the MediaTek Dimensity 920 ready for the coming 5G boom in the Indian market. It supports dual SIM 5G along with dual VoNR, offering users more choice and more performance with regards to VoNR services. It will result in clear voice calls with imperceptible lag. Moreover, there’s even support for 2CC carrier aggregation, enabling higher average speeds and seamless handovers between two 5G connection areas for higher speed, increased connection coverage, and better reliability. This aggregation applies to both TDD and FDD spectrum usage techniques.

Incredible connectivity features with dual SIM 5G and Wi-Fi 6

As is the case with other Dimensity chipsets, MediaTek 5G UltraSave power efficiency suite also finds its way into this assembly, ensuring that the faster connectivity standard doesn’t deplete battery life. It works with both 5G Standalone and non-Standalone networks to ensure that your 5G device lasts all day on any network. Another important connectivity feature that forms part of the chipset’s offerings is its support for Wi-Fi 6, which ensures that you always get the best speeds possible whether you are on Wi-Fi or a mobile network.

Support for smart adaptive high refresh-rate displays

High refresh rate displays have become a norm nowadays, so it’s no surprise that the MediaTek Dimensity 920 chipset supports them. What is quite exciting this time around is that it supports an adaptive refresh rate of up to 120Hz. It means that the display will smartly adjust the refresh rate according to the game or UI action detected. This way, it can raise the refresh rate to improve interactive user experience and lower the refresh rate for tasks wherein it’s not needed, saving precious battery life. Adaptive refresh-rate displays are the future as they allow users to experience high refresh-rate screens without compromising the battery life. And we are sure that this feature is going to make a lot of users quite happy.

Amazing 4K HDR video capture

The flagship-grade ISP onboard the MediaTek Dimensity 920 chipset supports quad-cameras with up to 108MP sensors. Even more interesting is its incorporation of a hardware-based 4K HDR video capture engine. This is no doubt a huge plus and will enable phones to dish out spectacular video quality. The company has also mentioned that the MediaTek Dimensity 920 chipset comes with advanced noise reduction capabilities that work behind the scenes to offer excellent photo and video quality in low-light scenarios. There’s also an integrated AI processor that manufacturers can take full advantage of for delivering new AI camera experiences. These AI enhancements can not only enable fun features but also improve the quality of photos and videos.
