Chip manufacturer MediaTek has launched a new processor in its dimension range – called Dimension 900 5G Chipset. This processor is based on the 6 nm node, supports Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, FHD + 120 Hz displays and a 108 megapixel main camera.
The new MediaTek Dimensity 900 will power devices that are expected to be launched in the world market in the second quarter of 2021, the company said in a press release.
The Dimensity 900 5G SoCs are integrated into a 5G New Radio (NR) Sub-6GHz modem with carrier aggregation and support for bandwidths up to 120 MHz. The processor is equipped with an octa-core CPU, which consists of two Arm Cortex-A78 processors with a clock rate of up to 2.4 GHz and six Arm Cortex-A55 cores with up to 2 GHz.
It also integrates an Arm Mali-G68 MC4 graphics processing unit (GPU), as well as an independent Artificial Intelligence (AI) processing unit (APU), which MediaTek says helps achieve optimal energy efficiency for longer battery life.
The company has also claimed that this processor integrates an HDR-native image signal processor (ISP) and a hardware-accelerated 4K HDR video recording engine, which is why it supports up to four simultaneous cameras and up to 108MP sensors running at 32M at 30 fps and Multi -Camera options like 20 + 20MP.
It also offers enhanced video capabilities from a standard dynamic range (SDR) to HDR with real-time enhancements to HDR10 + video playback.
For gaming, this processor supports MediaTek’s HyperEngine gaming engine and, in terms of connectivity, has support for Dual SIM 5G standby, 5G SA / NSA networks and dual SIM VoNR voice services.
