Essential 2CC Carrier Aggregation

The Dimensity 820 provides 2CC Carrier Aggregation, where competitor alternatives do not. This essential technology 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 with VoNR

Building on our history of leadership in dual SIM, dual standby (DSDS) modem designs the MediaTek Dimensity 820 features up to 5G+5G dual SIM to give access the fastest speeds and VoNR services from either connection. Some markets demand dual SIM smartphones, and we’re leading the way providing this essential feature.

Industry-Leading 5G Technologies

The fully-integrated 5G modem capabilities meet all 3GPP Release-15 requirements, plus DSS (Dynamic Spectrum Sharing) technology, FDD and TDD duplex modes, dual connectivity (EN-DC), and further connectivity enhancements. Our global carrier partnerships mean our 5G platforms are certified for use world-wide.
