As the chipset comes with MediaTek’s 5G “UltraSave technology”, the battery life of mobile devices will also see an enhancement.

The SoC has an octa-core CPU with a dual cluster technology in place. Two Arm Cortex-A76 processors with a clock speed of 2.4 GHz are present along with six Arm Cortex-A55 processors that boast a clock speed of 2.0 GHz. It also comes with a LPDDR4x RAM.

With the use of Dimensity 800U, high refresh rates of 120 Hz full HD plus displays are a given. High-quality video streaming will become easier with the chipset’s support for the HDR10+ standard. The MediaTek MiraVision PQ engine will provide HDR optimization for various kinds of video clips. It will support flexible camera placement with up to 64 MP cameras and quad-camera setups.
