After launching the Dimensity 900 and 800U chipsets earlier this year, MediaTek today announced two new processors that will power future midrange 5G smartphones. New chipsets, called Dimensity 920 and Dimensity 810, offer improved performance, dual SIM 5G support, and advanced imaging capabilities for 5G smartphones.
Dimensity 920 and 810 chipsets announced
Since Dimensity 920, the chipset offers a significant upgrade over its predecessor in the 900 series. It features an octa-core CPU based on the Cortex-A78 core, built using a 6nm process and clocked at a speed of 2.5GHz with an integrated Mali-G68 MC4 GPU. It comes with up to LPDDR5 RAM, up to UFS 3.1 storage, and support for MediaTek HyperEngine 3.0, improving game performance by 9%.
It also supports smart adaptive displays that allow mobile devices to dynamically adjust their refresh rates according to their content. The Dimensity 920 also offers an integrated flagship level HDR native image signal processor that supports hardware-accelerated 4K video recording with up to 108MP sensors.
Chipsets balance performance, power, and cost Providing hardware-based 4K HDR video capture.. In addition, it supports dual 5G SIM, dual VONR, Bluetooth 5.2, and Wi-Fi 6.
When it comes to the Dimensity 810, the chipset will also be built using 6nm manufacturing nodes. It comes with an octa-core design with a Cortex-A76 core clocked at 2.4GHz. It also supports 120Hz displays on midrange 5G smartphones, providing advanced noise reduction to improve imaging in low light. The chipset supports cameras up to 64MP.
In addition to these, the Dimensity 810 also supports advanced camera features such as artistic AI colors in collaboration with Arcsoft. In addition, it comes with MediaTek HyperEngine 2.0 support with an intelligent resource management system that optimizes game performance.
Regarding availability, smartphones with the Dimensity 920 and Dimensity 810 chipsets will be released in the third quarter of 2021, according to MediaTek. Therefore, phone makers plan to release devices with these chipsets between October and December.
