(Pocket-lint) – The recently announced Dimensity 1080 smartphone chipset promises to deliver better performance and battery life for 5G-enabled smartphones.
The Dimensity 1080 chipset comes with “several advanced features” which, according to CH Chen, deputy general manager of MediaTek, “defy expectations about the capabilities of a 5G smartphone.” Of course, this is mostly a promotion, but it’s all about focusing on speed and battery life.
It starts with an upgraded octa-core processor, with Arm Cortex-A78 cores clocked at up to 2.6GHz. In addition, the Arm Mali-G68 GPU promises “faster performance whether users are gaming, streaming, or browsing.” The entire chipset runs on a 6nm design as well, which is what MediaTek is referring to when talking about battery life improvements through improved power efficiency.
Additionally, MediaTek says its new chipset will support main cameras up to 200MP, with software-accelerated HDR video support. Support for 5G networks below 6GHz means all buzzwords are supported, while Dimensity 1080’s HyperEngine 3.0 optimizations for gaming [signifient] fast performance.
We’ll have to see these chipsets in action in real phones to see if any pay off, as MediaTek says we should see them arrive in the fourth quarter of 2022.
It also comes a few months after MediaTek launched its flagship Dimensity 9000+ chip, a piece of silicon that currently powers a number of phones from Asus, Honor, and Vivo.
