MediaTek has unveiled its latest 5G SoC for mid-range smartphones called Dimensity 800U. It is a 7nm chipset that supports 5G + 5G dual SIM Dual Standny (DSDS) technology.

The chipset has support for sub-6GHz SA and NSA networks along with Dual Voice over New Radio (VoNR) and 5G two carrier aggregation (2CC 5G-CA) for faster and stable 5G connections.

It has MediaTek 5G UltraSave technology which manages modem’s operating mode based on network environments, data transmission quality, thus extending battery life of smartphones.

The MediaTek Dimensity 800U features in octa-cores making up of dual-clusters of two 2.4GHz Cortex-A76 cores and six 2GHz Cortex-A55 cores. It is backed by Mali-G57 MC3 GPU.

The SoC supports FHD+ resolution and displays with up to 120Hz refresh rates for smooth gaming. It has HDR10+ support integrates MediaTek MiraVision PQ engine with HDR optimizations.

It also supports flexible camera placement with up to 64MP cameras and quad-camera capabilities. It has integrated APU and ISP for AI camera enhancements. There is support for Voice on Wake (VoW) and Dual-mic noise reduction technology.
