Taiwanese semiconductor manufacturer, MediaTek, has today introduced its latest 5G mobile SoC. The company has launched the MediaTek Dimensity 900 is a quad-core chipset that is based on 6nm architecture. This mobile processor comes integrated with Arm Mali-G68 MC4 GPU for the graphics. The successor to the MediaTek Dimensity 820 SoC has been optimised for better photography in any lighting condition, HD video, smooth and lag-free gaming and not to forget super fast 5G connection along with extended battery life. It has support for Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, ultra-fast FHD+ 120Hz displays and a 108MP main camera.
“Dimensity 900 brings a suite of connectivity, display and 4K HDR visual enhancements to mid-tier 5G smartphones and gives brands great design flexibility for their 5G portfolios,” said Dr JC Hsu, Corporate VP and GM of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit. “The chipset’s support for 5G and Wi-Fi 6 ensures users get the most out of their devices with super-fast and reliable connectivity.”
The all-new MediaTek Dimensity 900 SoC comes with 2x Arm Cortex-A78 up to 2.4GHz and six Arm Cortex-A55 up to 2GHz. Integrated with Arm Mali-G68 GPU, the chipset is built on the 6nm high-performance manufacturing node with 3rd Generation MediaTek APU. According to the company, this chipset is 8% more power-efficient than its predecessor Dimensity 900 which is based on 7nm architecture.
Whereas for the display the Dimensity 900 will support a full-HD+ display that supports a 120Hz refresh rate and MediaTek MiraVision HDR video technology. It can intelligently adjust a wide range of video stream factors, including colour, brightness, contrast, sharpness, and dynamic range. Additionally, it can carry Real-time HDR Composer (SDR to HDR) and enhanced HDR10+ Video Playback with per-frame local tone mapping.
On the camera front,, the MediaTek Dimensity 900 SoC can support up to 108-megapixel main sensor or 20+20-megapixel sensors @30FPS. It also supports a 4K HDR video recording engine and captures images in extreme low-light conditions (3DNR + MFNR). Over that it can decode 4K videos @ 30FPS, HEVC/H.264/VP9 and encode 4K videos @ 30FPS, HEVC/H.264.
Now coming to connectivity, MediaTek SoC can back up Wi-Fi 6 (2×2 MIMO), Bluetooth 5.2 and Multi-GNSS L1+L5 for wireless connectivity. Other than this it supports Dual 5G SIM (5G SA+5G SA), Up to 2.7Gbps DL. For storing content it can have both UFS 2.1 / UFS 3.1 storage and LPDDR4X / LPDDR5 memory.
