The MediaTek Dimensity 900 is bringing flagship-class tech into great 5G smartphones. We've managed to cram all these incredible mobile experiences into a tiny chip built using the latest, super-efficient 6nm production process. Here are the best features our latest Dimensity chip:

4K Video Capture Hardware Engine

Live streaming yourself, recording TikTok videos and YouTube shorts are a huge trend, so buying a new smartphone that always gets the best from those moments is a must. The Dimensity 900 features a dedicated 4K video capture and encoding engine that's designed to give the best results when recording video and live-streaming. Combined with the powerful multi-core AI processor also inside the Dimensity 900, the chip can offers AI-enhancements like real-time bokeh, background removal, personal avatar, 'beautification' actions and more. All this hard work is done behind the scenes so you can just pickup the phone can record anytime you feel like.

108MP cameras

Brands can opt for the latest 108MP cameras in their new smartphones to capture insane levels of detail. Snap super-sized photos even in low-light conditions thanks to its advanced noise reduction techniques (3DNR + MFNR) that work automatically. Smartphone designs can mix a big camera with others that offer specialist captures like macro, wide, ultra-wide or zoom, giving great consumer choice.

The Best of 5G

Faster speeds with more reach: 2CC carrier aggregation that can address up to 120MHz of spectrum, offering faster data speeds. Our carrier aggregation (NR-CA) can use 'mixed duplex'. Depending on local 5G operator support, this means mid-band TDD and low-band FDD connections can be combined for greater speed, coverage and connection reliability.

More Battery Life

Using the latest 6nm production process means the Dimensity 900 is built on one of the most advanced manufacturing techniques that's usually reserved for flagship-grade products. This leading process means the chip is made to the highest standards and is extremely power-saving, extending battery life more than ever before.

Yet, our power saving technologies don't stop there. MediaTek 5G UltraSave is a suite of power saving enhancements for the in-chip 5G modem that work with both the latest 5G Standalone and earlier 5G non-Standalone networks to make connected experiences go further: Learn More >

Dual 5G SIM

The Dimensity 900 offers not just dual 5G, but True dual 5G. That is, 5G Standalone on both SIM slots, ensuring a future-proof 5G smartphone. True dual 5G SIM gives users more choice, more performance and access to the latest VoNR services from both connections.

Blur-busting 120Hz Displays

Upgrading from a standard 60Hz smartphone to one with a premium 120Hz display cuts blur, improves response times and shows notably smoother scrolling of webpages and animations in apps. Pick one up for the first time and you'll immediately see the difference. The Dimensity 900 provides brands with the opportunity to make smartphones featuring 120Hz displays at a crisp FullHD+ resolution.

The latest, ultra-performant technologies

We've brought the latest Arm Cortex-A78 CPU cores into more 5G smarphones. The Dimensity 900 features two A78's clocking up to 2.4GHz within its octa-core CPU. Combined with support for the latest, ultra-fast LPDDR5 memory and fastest UFS 3.1 storage, Dimensity 900 smartphones will always feel fast and responsive in apps, games and in other connected experiences.

Turn SDR TV shows and movies into HDR experiences

Our HDR Composer intelligently upgrades SDR content to HDR in real-time. The Dimensity 900 dynamically performs scene detection and contrast control with per-frame picture quality tuning to ensure every scene is consistent and as close to native HDR content as you can get.

MediaTek MiraVision Enhanced Video Playback

Building on our expertise in Smart TVs, whether you're streaming video or watching from in-phone storage, MediaTek MiraVision can enhance up to 4K content in real-time to bring cinema-style experiences to the small screen. This technology suite intelligently adjusts a wide range video stream factors, including color, brightness, contrast, sharpness, and dynamic range.
