THE MediaTek revealed another processor for cell phones this Monday (10). O Dimension 1080 comes to market with support for 200 megapixel cameras, similar to the latest releases from Motorola and Xiaomi with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. The chip also comes with eight cores up to 2.6 GHz and 5G support.
The launch is the successor to the Dimensity 920. To refresh the memory, the chip appears inside the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G, announced in March with 108 megapixel triple camera and 120 watt fast recharge. O Realme 9 Pro+what is on sale in Brazil for the suggested price of R$ 3,499also brings the previous model of the Taiwanese brand.
The new generation stands out for supporting 4K filming and a camera of up to 200 megapixels. To the press, MediaTek highlights that the component will help to take pictures with more quality. The manufacturer, however, did not detail the photographic capabilities of the chip offered by the image processor (ISP) known as Imagiq.
Anyway, the Dimensity 1080 comes close to the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, Qualcomm’s most powerful, in terms of photography. To give you an idea, only two cell phones were released with the component: Motorola Edge 30 Ultra and Xiaomi 12T Pro. In common, the two phones have a 200 MP main camera.
The duo comprises the Isocell HP1 sensor. The component has a technology that joins sixteen 0.64 μm pixels into one 2.56 μm. Thus, the phone takes 12.5 MP photos with more light and greater detail. But, of course, this does not mean that all phones with Dimensity 1080 will be launched with this component.
The launch brings together other attributes that please the public. This is the case of the junction of eight cores, two Cortex-A78 of up to 2.6 GHz, allied to the Mali-G68 graphics chip. The MediaTek component will also be developed in a 6 nanometer process, which, according to the manufacturer, helps ensure more energy savings.
Compatibility with 5G is also present. The Taiwanese manufacturer informs that the component is compatible with the frequencies below 6 GHz (sub-6 GHz). In addition, consumers have Wi-Fi support, in addition to the presence of HyperEngine 3.0 and APU 3.0, which can have some advantages for those who like to play.
According to MediaTek, smartphones with Dimensity 1080 will be unveiled at the end of 2022.
