MediaTek unveils Dimensity 1050, the brand’s first chip with 5G support for both mmWave and sub-6 GHz.

MediaTek has released the Dimensity 1050 chipset for the brand’s first mobile platform based on the brand’s new M80 5G modem that supports both mmWave and sub-6 GHz in one. As promised since the end of last year hopes to expand the 5G customer base in America with the advantages The maximum download speed is about 50% more than before. The CPU is 8-core, manufactured with a 6nm process.

The CPU structure of the Dimensity 1050 is a 2 + 6 cores consisting of

  • Cortex-A78, 2.5 GHz, 2 cores
  • Cortex-A55, 2.0 GHz, 6 cores

The GPU is Mali-G610 MC3, the chipset supports LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.1 storage, while the connectivity sector supports Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2. Modern hardware-level AV1 video decoding is supported. It helps to save more battery while watching videos. This includes watching via streaming services such as Netflix or YouTube.

The highlight of mmWave is its high download speed. But the contract distance can not go far is a limitation. The sub-6 GHz, although the speed is second. but the distance covered So having the Dimensity 1050 support both 5G technologies is better than MediaTek’s past chipsets that only support sub-6 GHz.

For the first mobile phone to be powered by Dimensity 1050 will be launched in the third quarter of this year (model unknown) at the latest, no later than September.
