Almost two weeks after seeing confirmation that MediaTek intended to officialize the Dimensity 800, Taiwanese today revealed more details about the new SoC coming to market differentiating by bringing an integrated 5G modem to the project.
Manufactured on the basis of the 7nm process, it features SA / NSA dual-module network support, fourth-generation 2G to 5G connections, 5G Sub-6GHz frequency support, VoNR voice service, and dynamic spectrum technology (DSS).
One of the highlights of the Dimensity 800 is the dual 5G, which according to estimates, promises to improve up to 30% coverage of 5G networks allowing multiple connections.
Speaking specifically of the performance settings of the new chipset, we have it offers a combination of 8 cores, 4x Cortex-A76 and 4x Cortex-A55, being limited to the 2.0GHz frequency which puts it slightly below the Dimensity 1000. , which has this value as being the weakest clock.
In GPU, the Density 800 ships a Mali-G57MP4 in place of the Mali-G77MP9 seen in the sturdier sibling, and offers third generation APUs, half of the Dimensity 1000. According to estimates, this difference in APU makes the new SoC has a total performance of approximately 2.4 TOPs (trillions of calculations per second), compared to 4.5 TOPs of the Density 1000.
Another noticeable difference when compared is the camera support of the new chipset. While the Density 1000 supports up to 80MP, the Dimensity 800 also remains smaller, delivering a limit of 64MP, which is for single-sensor devices.
It is expected that this new chipset will start to be seen in handsets in the first half of this year, possibly in branded trading partners including Xiaomi and other Chinese manufacturers.
