MediaTek has unveiled the Dimensity 1050 system-on-chip, its first mmWave 5G chipset that will power the next generation of 5G smartphones.
Through dual connectivity using mmWave and sub-6GHz, the Dimensity 1050 claims to deliver the speed and capacity required to provide 5G smartphone users with seamless experience.
“The Dimensity 1050, and its combination of sub-6GHz and mmWave technologies, will deliver end-to-end 5G experiences, uninterrupted connectivity and superior power efficiency to meet everyday user demands,” said CH Chen, Deputy General Manager of Wireless Communications Business Unit at MediaTek.
“With faster, more reliable connections, and advanced camera technology this chip delivers powerful features to help device makes to differentiate their smartphone product lines.”
The Dimensity 1050 will be capable of delivering up to 53 percent faster speeds and greater reach to smartphones compared to LTE + mmWave aggregation alone.
The SoC integrates two premium ‘Arm Cortex-A78 CPUs’ with speeds reaching 2.5GHz and the latest Arm Mali-G610 graphics engine.
The chipset also offers Wi-Fi optimisations, alongside MediaTek’s HyperEngine 5.0 gaming technology to ensure lower-latency connections with the new tri-band — 2.4GHz, 5GHz and 6GHz — that extends game time and performance.
It also supports super-fast 144Hz Full HD+ displays, dual HDR video capture engine, excellent noise reduction for superb low-light photos and Wi-Fi 6E support.
MediaTek also announced two additional chipsets to expand its 5G and gaming chipset families:
The Dimensity 930 enables 5G smartphones to download data faster and stay connected regardless of location with 2CC-CA, including mixed duplex FDD+TDD for higher speeds and greater reach. Designed to capture vibrant details, it is equipped with MiraVision HDR video playback and display for 120Hz Full HD+ displays and HDR10+ video.
Additionally, HyperEngine 3.0 Lite gaming enhancements bring intelligent multi-network management to ensure lower latency for smooth user experiences and maximized battery life.
Meanwhile, the Helio G99 powers incredible mobile gaming experiences on 4G/LTE for higher throughput rates and more than 30 percent power savings for gaming compared to the Helio G96. This SoC will be available to customers in the second quarter of 2022.
