MediaTek just announced Dimensity 800U, the company’s latest mid-range 5G SoC, a cheaper version of the Dimensity 800 that introduced earlier this year, but this comes with cutting-edge technologies such as 5G+5G dual SIM dual standby (DSDS), dual Voice over New Radio (VoNR), and 5G two carrier aggregation (2CC 5G-CA). With the MediaTek 5G UltraSave technology, the modem’s operating mode is managed based on network environment and data transmission quality, extending the battery life of mobile devices.
It has two high-performance Arm Cortex-A76 cores at 2.4GHz, and six 2GHz Arm Cortex-A55 cores and Arm Mali-G57 GPU, which the company says is 11% faster CPU & 28% faster GPU compared to Dimensity 700 series. It has support for 120Hz FHD+ displays, HDR10+ standard for enhanced visual quality, plus the integrated MediaTek MiraVision PQ engine with HDR optimization for various types of videos.
There is support for voice on wakeup (VoW) and dual-mic noise reduction technology, lowering the standby power consumption of a voice assistant, and enabling it to hear clear sound regardless of external noise interruptions.
