MediaTek Announces Dimensity 920, 810 Chipsets For Mid-Range 5G Smartphones

The MediaTek Dimensity 920 and 810 are aimed at mid-range 5G smartphones, and should make it to devices soon enough.

The vulnerability that affected phones with MediaTek chips has been fixed

Chipmaker MediaTek has announced two new chipsets that will make it to smartphones soon. The MediaTek Dimensity 920 and the Dimensity 810 chips are part of the company’s DImensity 5G family. The chips are designed for mid to high end smartphones and have 5nm modems inside. “With the expanded Dimensity chipset series, MediaTek is providing device makers and smartphone users with the latest innovations at more accessible price points for the mainstream market,” said J.C. Hsu, Corporate VP and GM of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit. “Delivering a boost in performance, display intelligence and image brilliance, these new Dimensity chipsets will improve user experiences and deliver advanced 5G features and capabilities to 5G smartphones,” he added.

MediaTek Dimensity 920 Features

The Dimensity 920 is the more powerful of the two chips, and it’s built on the 6nm fabrication process. According to MediaTek, the chip supports intelligent displays and hardware-based 4K HDR video capture. It is supposed to offer a 9% boost to gaming performance over the MediaTek Dimensity 900, its predecessor.

Further, the MediaTek Dimensity 920 also supports Smart Adaptive Displays, which can adjust refresh rates on the fly. The 4K Video Capture Hardware engine includes an image signal processor for native HDR imaging, and the chip can support up to four cameras, and up to 108MP sensors. The company didn’t clarify whether four 108PM sensors can be fitted together using this chip.

The Dimensity 920 uses ARM’s Cortex A78 architecture and is an octa-core chip that can clock up to 2.5GHz. It uses LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.1 storage, which should put it amongst the company’s fastest processors today.

MediaTek Dimensity 810 Features

On the other hand, while the Dimensity 910 is also built on a 6nm manufacturing node, it isn’t as powerful as the 920. The chip uses ARM’s Cortex A76 architecture and has clock speeds of up to 2.4GHz. The company said the chip will support “premium camera features” and AI-based colour software that’s been developed alongside a company called Arcsoft. It will also have advanced noise recognition algorithms for low-light photography. 

The MediaTek Dimensity 810 also supports displays with up to 120Hz refresh rates, and can work alongside cameras with up to 64 MP resolution.
