MediaTek Dimensity 1000C

A 5G-Integrated SoC with Mixed Duplex 5G-CA

5G-CA enables higher average speeds and a seamless handover between two 5G connection areas across a coverage layer, where users receive over 30% greater throughput layer coverage than without CA.

The Dimensity 1000C is a 5G-integrated SoC with support for mixed duplex TDD+FDD, TDD+TDD and FDD+FDD with North American carriers, providing increased CA opportunity for better 5G speeds and coverage across high and low-bands.
