MediaTek has just officially announced the departure of the new Dimension 1050the company’s first chipset to jointly offer mmWave 5G and sub-6GHz support.
This new chipset that comes to increase the family of the existing Dimensity is a slightly watered-down version of the Dimensity 1100, with the exception of the aforementioned dual support.
In addition, it has presented another new chipset, the Dimension 930 5G and a new processor from the Helio range, the MediaTek Helio G99 4G.
Both processors will be focused on entry-level devices, with pretty good specifications for the devices they will reach.
MediaTek Dimension 1050
This new chipset from the MediaTek company stands out mainly for being the company’s first processor to support mmWave 5G and sub-6GHz bandssomething that not even the company’s best chipset, the Dimensity 9000, supports.
Among its most outstanding specifications we can find support for screens with a resolution of up to Full HD + with a maximum refresh rate of 144 Hznative AV1 codec support, ability to play content HDR10+ and also comes integrated with Dolby Vision support.
It will also integrate the MediaTek HyperEngine 5.0, RAM memory with LPDDR5 technology, storage with support for UFS 3.1 and Bluetooth 5.2.
It can support cameras up to 108 Mpx, with support for dual recording in HDRand has APU550 to help enhance AI mode and offer improved noise reduction in night photos.
Dimension 930 5G
This new processor with 5G support will be focused on the low range, and offers somewhat more modest specifications, but it is not far behind.
Among its most outstanding specifications, it has support for screens up to Full HD+ with a maximum refresh rate of 120 HzLPDDR5 RAM memory support and internal storage with UFS 3.1 technology.
Helium G99 4G
Finally, we have this new model of the Helio family, the G99 4G, which also has some remarkable specifications, although like the previous chipset it is focused on the low range.
Among its most outstanding specifications, it has support for LPDDR4X RAM memory with a maximum clock frequency of 2133 MHz per moduleinternal storage with UFS 2.2 support, and support for screens up to Full HD + with a maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz.
Availability and commercialization
The new MediaTek Dimensity 1050 is expected to be available from the third quarter of the yearwhile the Dimensity 930 5G and Helio G99 are expected to debut in smartphones in the coming weeks.
It is interesting to see that MediaTek has finally completed dual integration and support for both sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G, and we hope that they will also announce it with a new variant of their Dimensity 9000, as well as that they already include it in all the new Dimensities that they present .
