Taiwanese semiconductor firm MediaTek on Tuesday launched ”Dimensity 800 Series” chips for the affordable mid-price range 5G smartphones.
During the ongoing CES 2020 show in Las Vegas, the company said that the ‘Dimensity 800’ 5G chipset family offers powerful system-on-chips (SoCs) with integrated 5G modems.
The first devices featuring Dimensity 800 Series SoCs are expected to launch in the first half of this year.
“MediaTek has already launched its flagship 5G smartphone solution, the Dimensity 1000, and with the 800 series 5G chipset family, we are bringing 5G to the mid-tier and mass market,” TL Lee, head of MediaTek’s wireless business unit, said in a statement.
“The ‘Dimensity 800’ series will power the new premium segment for 5G, bringing consumers flagship smartphone features and performance at midrange price points,” Lee added.
The single chip solutions offer a combination of connectivity, multimedia, AI and imaging services packed into a 7nm chip.
The Dimensity 800 series integrates MediaTek’s 5G modem in one compact design, delivering significant platform power savings compared to two-chip alternatives, said the company.
