MediaTek has announced the new Dimensity 900 5G chipset, the latest addition to its Dimensity 5G family. The Dimensity 900 chipset, built on the 6-nanometer high-performance node, supports Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, ultra-fast FHD + 120Hz displays and a 108MP main camera for an incredible experience.
“Dimensity 900 offers a range of connectivity, display and 4K HDR visual enhancements to high-end 5G smartphones and gives brands great design flexibility for their 5G portfolio,” said Dr. JC Hsu, corporate vice president and GM at Business Unit. for MediaTek wireless communications. . “Support for the 5G and Wi-Fi 6 chipsets ensures that users make the most of their devices with super fast and reliable connectivity.”
The Dimensity 900 chipset is integrated with 5G New Radio (NR) under a 6GHz modem with operator aggregation and bandwidth support up to 120MHz. The chipset is equipped with an octa-core central processing unit (CPU), consisting of two Arm Cortex-A78 processors clocked at up to 2.4 GHz and six Arm Cortex-A55 cores running at up to 2 GHz. Dimensity 900 supports leading-edge LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.1 storage and can adapt to a screen refresh rate of 120 Hz, delivering excellent performance improvements and a seamless experience for 5G mobile devices.
The chipset also integrates the Arm Mali-G68 MC4 graphics processor (GPU), along with an independent artificial intelligence processor (AI), which provides optimal energy efficiency for extended battery life. MediaTek’s third-generation AI processor is extremely energy efficient to support a wide variety of AI applications and 4K high-resolution (HDR) resolution.
4K HDR video
The chipset integrates a leading HDR native image signal processor (ISP) and includes unique hardware-accelerated 4K HDR video recording. It supports up to four simultaneous cameras and up to 108MP sensors. It also features enhanced video capabilities from standard dynamic range (SDR) to HDR with real-time enhancements to HDR10 + video playback to improve content color and contrast.
MediaTek’s 5G series offers smartphones an unrivaled combination of connectivity, multimedia, AI and image innovation, powering premium and flagship devices with the Dimensity 1000, 1100 and 1200 families, as well as a range of devices with Dimensity 700, 800 and 900 families for the wider global market.
The Dimensity series supports every generation of connectivity from 2G to 5G, as well as the latest connectivity features, including 5G standalone (SA) and non-standard (NSA) architecture, 5G dual-carrier aggregation (2CC) over frequency division duplex (FDD), time division duplex (TDD), dynamic spectrum sharing (DSS), True Dual SIM 5G (5G SA + 5G SA) and Voice over New Radio (VoNR).
The new MediaTek Dimensity 900 will power devices that are expected to be launched worldwide in the second quarter of 2021.
