- The Dimensity 1080 is a new System-on-Chip (SoC) from MediaTek’s portfolio, and it belongs to the company’s mid-range processor family.
- The effectiveness of the camera, as well as its overall quality, has been enhanced.
- The memory modules have been upgraded to LPDDR5, and the storage modules have been upgraded to UFS 3.1.
- Both the MediaTek HyperEngine 3.0 and the MediaTek Diminsity 1080 are compatible with one another.
- This chip is making its first appearance in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 12, which was released recently.
Dimensity 1080 is a new mid-range processor from MediaTek’s SoC (System-on-Chip) lineup, announced today. The Dimensity 920 was its predecessor as a processor. Performance has improved with the new Dimensity 1080. Both its efficiency and its camera quality are improved. Here’s what the firm has to say about their new MediaTek Dimensity 1080:
“The benefits of MediaTek’s Dimensity 5G mobile platform are carried through in the Dimensity 1080, both in terms of performance and energy efficiency. It has some cutting-edge capabilities that 5G smartphone consumers have come to anticipate. The performance of image, display and other areas is improved even more by the MediaTek Diminsity 1080. As a result, the terminal will be able to enter the mainstream market more rapidly”.
Specifications of the MediaTek Dimensity 1080
Adding a camera to the chip is the main improvement. The new MediaTek Diminsity 1080 utilises the Imagiq ISP to process sensor images. Up to 200 million pixels may be processed (previously 108MP). There are four cameras available on this gadget. An engine for capturing 4K HDR footage is built into the Dimensity 1080’s hardware. As a result, the chip can produce more usable images in dim conditions.
The performance of this 5G chip is a little bit better because it has an octa-core central processing unit. Dual ARM Cortex-A78 cores with speeds up to 2.6GHz are used. Moreover, it contains 6 ARM Cortex-A55 cores that may reach speeds of up to 2GHz. The GPU is still the Mali-G68. Applications like gaming, video streaming, and online surfing all benefit from this chip’s improved performance.
The LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.1 storage modules are included with the processor. TSMC’s 6nm technology is still in use for the Dimensity 1080. In addition to extending the battery life of cell phones, this procedure is more energy efficient. There may not be a discernible improvement in performance metrics.
The MediaTek HyperEngine 3.0 is compatible with the MediaTek Diminsity 1080. This has the potential to provide a seamless, high-performance gaming experience with little lag. The chip’s improved energy efficiency when gaming is a result of MediaTek’s third-generation APU. Sub-6GHz 5G full-band high-speed networks is also supported by the Dimensity 1080. Wi-Fi 6 connectivity is supported as well. In the fourth quarter of 2022, smartphones with this processor should start to come out.
This processor is making its debut in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 12
The Redmi Note 12, claims well-known tech blogger @DCS, will be the first phone to employ this processor. The official release date for this smartphone is before the 11.11 shopping holiday in China. The Redmi Note 12 is expected to be a top seller during Xiaomi’s 11.11 sales event, the company says. Lu Weibing, the general manager of Redmi, recently hinted that a high-quality product would be coming out soon.
The Chinese 3C listing for the Redmi Note 12 was completed in September. According to the specifications, this unit may be charged using a 67W MDY-12-EF adapter. The Redmi Note 12 Pro and Pro+ can charge at 120W and 210W, respectively. Unfortunately, too little is known about this gadget.
