MediaTek Dimensity 1080

Faster Speeds, Bigger Pictures, Incredible 4K HDR Video for Streamers

Faster Performance, Smoother Games

The Dimensity 1080's octa-core CPU features four Arm Cortex-A78 processors clocked up to 2.6GHz for exceptional performance, rapid App response, and smoother FPS in games.

The Arm Mali-G68 graphics engine is optimized for power-efficiency, extending battery life even further for mobile gamers.

Catch the Moment in 200MP

Support for the latest 200MP main camera sensors allows the Dimensity 1080 to capture almost twice as much detail in photos.

MediaTek Intelligent Refresh Rate Displays

Power Savings for High Refresh Rate Displays

MediaTek Intelligent Refresh Rate Displays adjust the display refresh rate according to the game or UI action detected: the refresh rate is raised to improve interactive user experience, then subsequently lowered to improve power efficiency when not necessary. This dynamic technology provides all the user experience benefits of an ultra-fast display refresh rate while also maximizing power efficiency.

Full HD+ up to 120Hz

Device makers can offer crisp, high resolution Full HD+ displays with ultra 120Hz displays that provide a supremely smooth user experience, whether it’s zero-blur gaming, the notably smoother scrolling of webpages or animations in apps.

Dedicated 4K HDR Video Capture Engine

The dedicated hardware-accelerated 4K HDR video recording engine extends battery life when capturing or streaming video. Combined with premium noise reduction techniques results in exceptional 4K HDR streams and captures in any lighting conditions.

MediaTek APU 3.0

A dedicated, multi-core AI processing unit (APU) supports diverse AI-camera application support, including soft background (AI-bokeh) and selective focus from a single camera – ideal for selfie vlogs and streams.

Exceptionally Power-efficient 6nm Chip

Using the advanced TSMC N6 (6nm-class) chip production process enables the Dimensity 1080 to extend battery life, even for demanding users. Its highly power-efficient design enables device makers to create attractive, slim and light 5G smartphones with incredible performance that last longer than ever.

Wi-Fi 6

Wi-Fi 6 with 2x2 MIMO affords faster, more reliable internet connections. Integrated into the chip along with Bluetooth 5 and GNSS, the wireless connectivity is more power-efficient than other external chip solutions.

5G

Faster 5G Carrier Aggregation

With 2CC-CA including mixed duplex FDD+TDD, MediaTek Dimensity 1080 smartphones can combine low and mid-band advantages for higher speeds and greater reach. 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.

Dual 5G SIM

The Dimensity 1080 provides dual 5G SIM (standalone), with support for premium VoNR call services from both connections.

MediaTek 5G UltraSave

The advanced 5G modem is fully integrated into this ultra-efficient, 6nm chip, and combined with MediaTek 5G UltraSave means the MediaTek Dimensity 1080 is enhanced with even more 5G power-saving technologies.

MediaTek HyperEngine 3.0 – Networking Engine

Game on SIM 1, Call on SIM 2

Call and data concurrency 3.0 allows gamers to keep a 5G data connection open and uninterrupted for their game, while simultaneously accepting a call* on the second SIM.

5G HSR mode for gaming

With HSR (“high speed rail”) mode, the smartphone will search and connect to the lowest latency available cell tower to minimize online ping. This is particularly advantageous when traveling fast, as the relative distance – and thus latency – to each tower changes rapidly.

Super Hotspot Power Saving

MediaTek HyperEngine Super Hotspot enables 5G tethering to other devices without impacting their own gaming performance. With the 5G modem and Wi-Fi integrated into the chip it allows them to work closer together for better power efficiency, resulting in up to 33% power savings compared to alternative platforms.
