Powerful AP with 4G LTE and dual-core AI processor


The MediaTek MT8788 brings together a mix of powerful hardware plus 4G LTE modem integrated into a power-efficient 12nm SoC, enabling high performance, fully featured designs with everywhere connectivity.

The MT8788 octa-core CPU incorporates four Arm Cortex-A73 high performance cores, plus four Cortex-A53 power-efficiency cores, all operating up to 2GHz. Graphics is provided by a highly capable Arm Mali-G72 MP3 GPU operating up to 800MHz, while LPDDR4 memory up to 3200MT/s is supported, providing substantial memory performance.

Up to large 32MP sensors or multi-camera arrays up to 16+16MP are supported; backed by a power-optimized, triple ISP design. Using the dual-core MediaTek APU 1.0, brands can embrace AI-enabled OS-enhancements like personal assistants and AI-camera features such as deep-leading face detection, object and scene identification, selfie enhancements, AR/MR acceleration, album categorization and other photography and live-video enhancements.

FullHD (1920 x 1080) resolution displays bring sharp and vivid visuals, while a multi-standard video accelerator and an advanced audio subsystem provide power-efficient multimedia playback at up to FulHD resolution from either local storage or streaming services.

4G LTE connectivity is integrated into the MT8788, enabling power efficient, global connectivity at up to Cat-7 performance. Dual 4G SIM capabilities provide superior consumer choice and VoLTE/ViLTE services from either connection, where available.
