MediaTek’s new Dimensity series will lead 5G Smartphones in India

MediaTek has announced its new Dimensity series of 5G chipsets which will power the next wave of 5G devices from leading smartphone brands in India. MediaTek expects the first smartphones powered by the flagship MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ chip to launch early in 2021.

Earlier this year, MediaTek expanded its Dimensity family of chips by launching the flagship Dimensity 1000+, an enhanced 5G-integrated chip with upgraded gaming, video playback, enhanced connectivity, and power-efficiency. Based on the flagship performance of the Dimensity 1000 series, the 7nm Dimensity 1000+ chip, the new SoC will deliver a high-end, premium user experience. It features leading 5G capabilities including dual 5G SIM, carrier aggregation (2CC 5G-CA), faster speeds, and MediaTek’s 5G UltraSave power-saving technology which improves battery life.

“India is one of the largest consumers of data, globally, and the market is primed for the seamless connectivity and transformative speed offered by 5G. MediaTek is at the forefront of the global 5G revolution and we continue to work with popular smartphone brands to bring 5G enabled devices to Indian consumers. Our flagship-grade MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ will deliver premium experiences as Indian telecom authorities move to quickly deploy 5G in the country,” said Dr. Yenchi Lee, Deputy General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit.
