Continued efforts in the low-end market, MediaTek Dimensity 800U released

In the golden age of 5G mobile phone development this year, MediaTek has fought a beautiful turnaround with the Dimensity series of 5G chips. Currently, the Dimensity series has been adopted by major domestic mobile phone manufacturers. Up to now, Dimensity series has launched Dimensity 1000+, Dimensity 1000, Dimensity 1000L, Dimensity 820, Dimensity 800, Dimensity 720 and other chips. Recently, MediaTek has brought a brand new Dimensity 800U processor.

In terms of performance, the MediaTek Dimensity 800U uses two 2.4GHz Cortex-A76 large cores + six 2.0GHz Cortex-A55 small cores, and the GPU is ARM Mali-G57MP3, with a maximum frequency of 2.4GHz. Although the core frequency of this processor is slightly higher than the previously released Dimensity 800, it uses a 2 large core + 6 small core design. Dimensity 800 is designed with 4 large cores + 4 small cores. The actual experience should be slightly higher. Therefore, it can be inferred that Dimensity 800U is between Dimensity 720 and Dimensity 800.

Although the performance is slightly inferior to Dimensity 800, Dimensity 800U also supports 120Hz refresh rate, FHD+ resolution, and 64 million pixel sensor, which can be matched with some high-end accessories. At present, high refresh rate screens and high-pixel sensors have basically become just needed, and it is important to support these.

Dimensity 800U is used to fill the gap between Dimensity 800 and Dimensity 720, but since models equipped with Dimensity chips are mainly concentrated at 1500 yuan (USD $214) to 2500 yuan (USD $357) , the density is high, so how much value this chip can play Not necessarily. In addition, there is news that MediaTek also has Dimensity 600 and Dimensity 400 chips that will be released soon, which may be able to reduce the price of 5G mobile phones to less than 1,000 yuan (USD $143) .
