MediaTek Dimensity 7050 announced; will power Lava Agni 2 5G

MediaTek has introduced yet another 7000 series chipset called the Dimensity 7050 which has similar specifications as the Dimensity 1080. This features 6nm-class technology, which enables enhanced power efficiency when combined with MediaTek 5G UltraSave to provide long-lasting performance.

It has an Octa-Core CPU with two Arm Cortex-A78 performance cores that can run at up to 2.6GHz and six Arm Cortex-A55 efficiency cores that can run at 2.0GHz, as well as a Mali-G68 graphics engine.

It supports 200MP main cameras, a plethora of hardware-based camera engines, and a specialized 4K HDR video capture engine while consuming little battery power. Furthermore, the MediaTek APU 550 enables a number of AI-camera enhancements.

It boasts HyperEngine technology, which provides integrated 5G HSR mode, in which the smartphone actively searches for and connects to the lowest latency accessible cell tower to reduce online ping. The innovative networking engine supports call and data concurrency, allowing gamers to keep a 5G data connection open and uninterrupted for their game while accepting a call on the second SIM.

The chipset uses Intelligent Refresh Rate Display technology to enable full HD+ displays up to 120Hz. It offers Wi-Fi 6 with 2×2 MIMO, Bluetooth 5.2, and GNSS, and faster 5G Carrier Aggregation (2CC-CA) with mixed duplex FDD+TDD that uses low and mid-band for higher speeds, greater reach, and a seamless handover.
