MediaTek Dimensity 1000

We’re redefining the flagship smartphone experience with MediaTek Dimensity mobile series. MediaTek's technological and product leadership is exhibited in our new series of 5G-integrated SoC’s (system on chip) designed for premium-to-flagship smartphones.

Through the clever combination of the most powerful and innovative technologies in a leading design, this tiny 7nm chip is the new era of mobility, where everyone, and everything is seamlessly connected.

With MediaTek Dimensity, Expect Incredible.

World’s Fastest Sub-6GHz 5G SoC

The MediaTek Dimensity 1000 leads the industry by fully integrating a 5G NR (Sub-6GHz) modem that’s capable of Carrier Aggregation, giving it up to 4.7Gbps performance, full 5G SA/NSA and 2G-5G support and platform power-efficiency beyond direct alternatives.

Most Power Efficient 5G Modem

Despite the extreme complexity of a 5G modem, integrating it into the same tiny piece silicon as the rest of the processing elements gives the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 a distinct an advantage in power efficiency – consumes 49% less power than competitors, 2X performance, plus the overall platform size is also reduced so brands can use the extra space for other features such as bigger batteries or larger camera sensors. Current alternatives for flagship smartphones use two-chip solutions with external 5G modem, which is just one of the reasons MediaTek 5G SoC now leads in platform design.

World’s First Dual 5G SIM

MediaTek has led in dual SIM dual standby (DSDS) technology since 2008, and was first to dual 4G SIM in 2017 that has revolutionized many global smartphone markets. Dimensity 1000 again sets the trend as the world’s first dual 5G SIM technology, uniquely providing services such as VoNR and a consistent user experience through speed and service quality via both connections.

First Sub-6GHz 5G 2CC SoC

As with 4G LTE, 5G Carrier Aggregation brings significant performance and connection reliability benefits. The MediaTek Dimensity 1000 series is the first smartphone chip with integrated 5G modem that offers 5G carrier aggregation.

Discover why 5G Carrier Aggregation (CA) is an essential feature in 2020 and beyond.

But wait, there’s more!

Please see our extended information page detailing the full breadth of our 5G modem capabilities, which includes our leading position in 5G SA capability and how we meet all 3GPP Release-15 requirements: non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) 5G operator architectures, FDD and TDD duplex modes, dual connectivity (EN-DC), and a range of connectivity enhancements including DSS (Dynamic Spectrum Sharing), DPS (Dynamic Power Sharing), HPUE, BPA (Bandwidth Part Adaptation) and UDC (Uplink Data Compression).

Expect Incredible Experiences in Apps & Games

4X Big Core: Arm Cortex-A77 CPU
4X Efficiency Core: Arm Cortex-A55 CPU
9X Powerful Core: Arm Mali-G77 GPU

We’ve created an incredible smartphone processing powerhouse by pairing four ‘Big Core’ Arm Cortex-A77 cores operating up to 2.6GHz, with four power-efficient Arm Cortex-A55 cores and partnered them all to a low-latency last-level cache to improve performance and power-efficiency even further. This can be paired with a generous 16GB of ultra-fast 4X-channel LPDDR4X memory, while avid gamers have immense graphics at their fingertips with up to nine Arm Mali-G77 GPU cores. However, the gaming experience is best when you optimize the whole smartphone…

MediaTek HyperEngine 2.0

HyperEngine 2.0 enhances the whole smartphone experience, through networking enhancements that predict network traffic to dramatically reduce the latency for smooth gameplay; rapid responsiveness that shaves milliseconds off touchscreen input to display and audio actions; and picture quality enhancements that auto-optimize the frame settings.

Enhanced HDR-ISP, AI-Camera and Video-centric Experiences

The MediaTek Dimensity 1000 incorporates a world’s first 5-core ISP in a unique heterogeneous ‘3 big + 2 small’ design that offers the best performance-to-power-efficiency index by matching the right size sensor to the most appropriate ISP. Designed for a video-centric experience as much as photography, this powerful ISP design now offers real-time video NR, video Bokeh and video EIS.

We’ve introduced a new wave of AI-camera enhancements that now include AI-Shutter, AI-AE, AI-AF, AI-AWB, AI-NR HDR, AI-HDR, and AI facial detection to ensure the complete capture experience is the smartest and fastest ever.

It supports the latest crop of 80MP cameras sensors and a range of multi-camera options for brands to use; whether up to 32+16MP dual cameras, or additional smaller sub-cameras used for telephoto, HDR or depth processing.

World’s First Multi-Exposure HDR video

The Dimensity 1000 is the only smartphone SoC that can record 4K HDR video by capturing every three frames at different exposures and intelligently fuses them into a single video stream, all in real-time. The results are unprecedented, allowing users to accurately capture the full spectacle even in environments with extremes of bright or darkness, regardless of whether it’s a single moments photo or a video of the whole event.

APU 3.0: Hexa-core AI processor with leading performance and power-efficiency

The MediaTek APU 3.0 is a brand-new architecture that houses six AI processors consisting of two big cores, three small cores and a single tiny core. This highly heterogeneous design is ideally suited to meet the wide variety of smartphone needs that spread across AI-camera, AI-assistant, in-app or OS-enhancements that make up modern smartphone experiences. The new APU 3.0 is the fastest ever, offering a huge 4.5 TOPS - over 2.5X performance uplift over the previous generation APU 2.0 – and provides ample capacity for app designs and smartphone brands to build new, innovative experiences.

With MediaTek NeuroPilot support and full compliance with Android Neural Networks API (Android NNAPI), developers and device makers have the best possible ecosystem for Android enhancements and app development, with support for many common AI frameworks.

Blur-busting displays, fast 4K multimedia & AV1 decoding

HFR (high frame rate) displays are not just an essential feature for gamers to attack the action, but they’re also beneficial to the everyday experience with notably smoother scrolling of webpages and animations in apps. The MediaTek Dimensity 1000 brings this supreme sensation to smartphones with FullHD+ displays up to 120Hz and 2K+ up to 90Hz.

In addition to enabling hardware video encoding and decoding at 4K 60FPS, the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 is the world’s 1st mobile SoC with AV1 format support: the latest and most advanced video streaming technology supported by major global technology and content makers, helping to enable new levels of visual detail, crisper sound and higher resolutions in the latest wave of streaming media.

Incredibly accurate positioning engine, whether indoors or outdoors

The MediaTek Dimensity 1000 positioning engine is our most accurate ever. It has the most comprehensive coverage of global GNSS constellations via dual-band GNSS that features 25 more L5 bands than any other smartphone chip. When GNSS is unavailable, the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 provides the most accurate and longest dead reckoning location performance compared to any other smartphone. To achieve this, our sensor fusion technology intelligently measures several sensors together to provide a highly accurate position.

World’s First SoC Integrated Wi-Fi 6 & Gigabit-class performance

MediaTek Dimensity 1000 integrates the latest Wi-Fi 6 (2T2R 802.11ax) and Bluetooth 5.1+ standards for the fastest and most efficient local wireless connectivity. Wi-Fi 6 performance offers over 1Gbps throughput in both downlink and uplink, which is up to 1.3X faster than premium smartphone alternatives, so even without 5G an internet connection remains at gigabit-speeds and ultra-reliable.
