Mediatek has just announced its latest 5G chipset, designated for midrange smartphones – the Dimensity 900. It is built on the 6 nm process technology and comes as a logical update over the Dimensity 800 series with a faster CPU and better connectivity options.
The new Dimensity 900 chip brings an octa-core CPU with two clusters – one with two Cortex-A78 cores at 2.4GHz for power and six Cortex-A55 units at 2 GHz for efficiency.
The chipset supports cameras of up to 108MP resolution and video recording up to 4K@30 fps.
Smartphones with the Dimensity 900 chipset can have Full HD+ screens with up to 120Hz refresh rate and all the latest memory standards – LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. Another feature that Mediatek is really proud of is the support for Dual 5G – phones are practically able to work on two 5G networks simultaneously, as well as combining a single 5G network with an older-gen network.
The Taiwanese chip company did not reveal when we’ll see smartphones with the platform on the market, but given the fact it is already being benchmarked, hopefully, we’ll see a launch very soon.
