MediaTek Launches mmWave 5G Dimensity 1050 Chipset

Fabless semiconductor company MediaTek announced on Monday the launch of the Dimensity 1050, its first mobile platform supporting mmWave 5G.

The Dimensity 1050 adopts the TSMC 6nm process, is equipped with an octa-core CPU, and includes two Arm Cortex-A78 cores with main frequency of 2.5 GHz. Its GPU adopts a new generation Arm Mali-G610 graphics engine, supporting seamless connectivity through an easy switch between the Sub-6GHz and the mmWave standards. The chipset also supports dual 5G sim (5G SA + 5G SA) and dual sim VoNR calls, equipped with AI processor APU 550, and supports Wi-Fi 6E 2×2 MIMO. Products equipped with the Dimensity 1050 SoC are expected to be unveiled in the third quarter of this year.

In addition, MediaTek released two other mobile platforms, including the Dimensity 930 5G mobile platform supporting full-band Sub-6GHz 5G network and the Helio G99 4G mobile platform supporting 4G LTE network.

The Dimensity 930 5G mobile platform supports full-band Sub-6GHz 5G network, 2CC-CA and mixed duplex FDD+TDD, MiraVision HDR video playback and display for 120Hz Full HD+ displays and HDR10+ video. HyperEngine 3.0 Lite gaming enhancements bring multi-network management to ensure lower latency for a smooth user experience and maximized battery life.
