MediaTek has made a lot of name for itself in the 5G space, especially after the launch of the flagship Dimensity 1200 chipset for 5G smartphones. The Dimensity 900 aims to further conquer the space. The Dimensity 900 has got an octa-core CPU, featuring two new Cortex-A78 cores (at up to 2.4GHz) and six Cortex-A55 cores (at up to 2GHz). So this is not exactly a flagship chipset like the 1200 but we are still getting decent midrange performance.
The latest processor from MediaTek also sports an Arm Mali-G68 MC4 GPU. This is basically the same GPU we see on flagship processors with fewer cores. The chipset offers sub-6GHz 5G (no mmWave) with peak download speeds of 2.77Gbps. It also features support for 108MP single cameras, 20MP+20MP dual cameras, up to four concurrent cameras, 4K HDR, and 4K/30fps recording.
MediaTek says that phones featuring this processor will ship in Q2 2021. Stay tuned for more updates.
