MediaTek has refined the Dimensity 1000 Series with the Dimensity 1000+. This enhanced 5G-integrated chip features a number of user experience upgrades in gaming, video playback and connectivity power-efficiency. Here’s its best 11 features: 

1) MediaTek 5G UltraSave

When downloading a lot 5G is more power-efficient per bit transferred than 4G, but some activities like streaming music, surfing the web or background OS updates don’t require 5G's super bandwidth or ultra-low latency. Therefore, an intelligent modem design is required to actively balance the performance needs of any activity with the view of besting power efficiency. With the 5G modem integrated into the chip already, MediaTek has further extended its power efficiency advantage through 5G UltraSave technologies that include OTA Content Awareness, Network Environment Detection, Dynamic BWP and Connected DRX.

2) Carrier Aggregation

Compared to previous cellular generations, 5G services are being rolled out faster than ever before, with many regions unlocking carrier aggregation services to quickly provide its essential benefits.

Current 2CC carrier aggregation brings significant performance and connection reliability benefits such as higher average speeds, over 30% greater coverage layer and a seamless handover between two 5G connection areas. It’s easy to see how CA is a must-have feature for 5G smartphones.

By combining the performance of two connections, the Dimensity 1000 Series gives the fastest 5G NR at up to 4.7Gbps downlink from a single-chip.

3) Hyper Engine 2.0

MediaTek HyperEngine is designed to enhance the whole smartphone gaming experience and the latest HyperEngine 2.0 packs upgrades for the 5G-era. It includes four main "Engines" that cover networking enhancements, rapid response, picture quality and resource management.

4) MiraVision

MiraVision is an exclusive display technology suite that intelligently adjusts a wide range video stream factors, including color, brightness, contrast, sharpness, and dynamic range, to bring a cinema-grade visual experience to the small screen. The Dimensity 1000 features AI-PQ (picture quality), HDR Composer that upgrades SDR to HDR quality with sub-frame precision and even HDR10+ content is enhanced beyond the metadata for the most incredible movies and videos.

5) 144Hz displays

The MediaTek Dimensity 1000 Series enables the fastest 144Hz Full HD+ displays available today. These ultra-high refresh rate displays are not just a supreme sensation for gamers, they’re also beneficial to the everyday experience with notably smoother scrolling of webpages and animations in apps.

6) AV1 video decoding

The MediaTek Dimensity 1000 Series is the world’s first mobile SoC with hardware decoding for AV1 video. AV1 is the latest and most advanced video streaming technology, which is supported by major content makers and video streaming services, such as Google and Netflix. It can pack in more visual detail, crisper sound, and higher resolutions without adding significantly to bandwidth costs. Hardware decoding is a major advantage in that it’s incredibly power efficient, enabling users to watch their favorite shows and movies for longer.

7) Multi-Exposure 4K HDR video

Multi-frame 4K HDR video captures frames at different exposures and intelligently fuses them into a single video stream, all in real-time. It allows users to capture accurately and effortlessly, even in environments with extremes of bright and dark, regardless of whether it’s a single moments photo or a video of the whole event.

8) 4.5TOPS AI Processor

MediaTek APU 3.0 (dedicated AI processor) houses six AI processors and offers a huge 4.5 TOPS performance. With two big cores, three small cores and a single tiny core, this diverse mix of core types is designed to accommodate the wide variety of AI-enhanced features in modern smartphones, whether AI-camera, AI-assistant, in-app or OS-enhancements that make up modern smartphone experiences.

Wielding such huge performance potential gives app designers and smartphone brands the freedom to develop new and innovative experiences for their users.

9) Location that keeps working even when satellites are unavailable

With comprehensive dual-band GNSS the Dimensity 1000 Series provides the most accurate location ever, wherever you are; however, when you head into parking garages or tunnels GNSS is not always available. The Dimensity 1000 Series includes a revolutionary new positioning engine that uses sensor fusion technology to provide the longest, most accurate dead reckoning location performance compared to any other smartphone, so you can continue to know where you are. 

10) Dual 5G SIM

MediaTek has led in dual SIM technologies since 2008, including the first chip with dual 4G SIM and Dual VoLTE in 2017 that revolutionized many global smartphone markets. We’re continuing our dual SIM leadership with the Dimensity 1000 Series that provides dual 5G SIM technology with VoNR, for a consistent user experience through speed and service quality via both connections.  

11) Wi-Fi 6

MediaTek Dimensity 1000 Series integrates the latest Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and Bluetooth 5.1+ standards for the fastest and most efficient local wireless connectivity. Wi-Fi 6 performance offers gigabit-class performance, so even when you can't get 5G an internet connection can remain ultra-fast and reliable.
