MediaTek Dimensity 900 launched Thursday as the company’s newest 5G mobile SoC and is based on a 6nm architecture like Dimensity 1100 and Dimensity 1200. The new SoC is a quad-core chip with 3rd generation MediaTek APU AI. It has the integrated Arm Mali-G68 MC4-GPU for graphically intensive tasks. The MediaTek Dimensity 900 is a successor to the MediaTek Dimensity 820 SoC, which is based on a 7 nm architecture, and the new chip brings few improvements over the older chip. It’s designed for mid-range smartphones, but it’s unclear which smartphone will be the first to feature the new SoC.
As mentioned earlier, the latest SoC in MediaTek’s Dimensity lineup is based on a 6nm process, which the company claims is 8 percent more efficient than the 7nm SoCs. It has a quad-core setup with two ARM Cortex-A78 cores clocked at up to 2.5 GHz and six ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at up to 2 GHz. Graphics are processed by the Mali-G68 MC4 GPU. In terms of display support, the Dimensity 900 can generate 120 Hz with a Full HD + display together with MediaTek MiraVision HDR video technology. This technology can automatically adjust the color, brightness, contrast, sharpness and dynamic range in a video. It also supports real-time SDR to HDR conversion and enhanced HDR10 + video playback with local frame mapping.
In terms of camera support, the MediaTek Dimensity 900 can process up to a single 108 megapixel sensor or two 20 megapixel sensors at 30 frames per second. It also supports hardware 4K HDR video recording. It can decode 4K HEVC / H.264 / VP9 videos at 30 fps and encode 4K at 30 fpps HEVC / H.264. The new 5G SoC supports both LPDDR5 and LPDDR4X RAM as well as UFS 3.1 memory.
For connectivity, Wi-Fi 6 (2×2 MIMO), Bluetooth v5.2 support and Multi-GNSS L1 + L5 are available. MediaTek says it delivers faster Wi-Fi 6 with better signal quality from 2×2 antenna. In terms of 5G connectivity, two 5G SIM cards and download speeds of up to 2.7 Gbit / s can be allowed. It also supports the latest VoNR services.
