1 min read

MediaTek has unveiled the Dimensity 8200, its latest chipset for premium 5G smartphones.

According to the company, smartphones using the Dimensity 8200 will see improved connectivity, gaming, multimedia, displays and imaging – and all at a more accessible price point.

Built on the 4nm-class process, this chipset delivers significantly improved power efficiency. It also integrates an octa-core CPU with four Arm Cortex-A78 cores operating at up to 3.1 GHz, along with a powerful Mali-G610 graphics engine, for better performance across applications.

To enhance the user’s gaming performance, the chipset takes advantage of MediaTek’s HyperEngine 6.0 gaming technologies delivering a much higher framerate for gameplay without suffering connection drops or FPS jitter.

MediaTek’s Intelligent Display Sync 2.0 technology is able to adjust the display refresh rate according to the game frame rate detected, which helps provide smoother viewing experiences.

“The MediaTek Dimensity 8200 will enhance the gaming experience on premium 5G smartphones, and will deliver smoother gameplay with higher framerates, impressive graphics, and seamless connectivity,” said CH Chen, Deputy General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit. “Plus, the Dimensity 8200’s power efficiency enhancements make it so consumers don’t have to sacrifice battery life to enjoy super high performance.”

Powered by Imagiq 785 ISP, the Dimensity 8200 is capable of supporting 320MP photos and capturing true-to-life 14-bit HDR video on up to three cameras simultaneously, and recording cinematic video by double camera capture for the most natural bokeh effect.

The chipset also has exceptionally fast AI-noise reduction to retain fine details, particularly in low-light environments.

The fully integrated 5G modem in the Dimensity 8200 features the latest 3GPP Release-16 standard technology and 3CC carrier aggregation to amplify sub-6GHz performance. The chipset also supports tri-band Wi-Fi 6E for faster wireless connectivity, while the 2x2 antenna ensures improved performance and connection reliability.

 Additional features of the Dimensity 8200 include:

  • Powerful AI processing unit to maximise the efficiency of dedicated AI tasks and fusion processing.
  • Ultra-efficient Vulkan SDK to provide faster and more effective ray tracing effects.
  • Support for 120Hz WQHD+ and 180Hz Full HD+ displays.
  • Immersive viewing experiences with HDR10+ Adaptive support, 4K AV1 media decoding, and AI SDR-to-HDR video playback.
  • Enhanced audio quality with Bluetooth LE Audio technology and Dual-Link True Wireless Stereo Audio.

Dimensity 8200 will power 5G devices launching in the global market starting in December 2022.
