Mediatek Dimensity 1050 brings mmWave support, Dimensity 930 and Helio G99 tag along

Yordan, 23 May 2022

Mediatek announced the Dimensity 1050 - its first chipset with mmWave 5G support. It will allow seamless connectivity through an easy switch between the Sub-6GHz and the mmWave standards. It is built by TSMC on a 6nm process, and the company promised devices with the chip as early as Q3 2022.

The Taiwanese company also introduced its Wi-Fi 7 platforms in the Filogic 880 and Filogic 380 with Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth 5.3 integration.

Dimensity 1050 has an octa-core CPU - two Cortex-A78 units at 2.5 GHz and six Cortex-A55 at 2.0 GHz - and a Mali-G610 MC3 GPU. The mmWave comes with 4CC carrier aggregation, while Sub-6 is limited to 3CC.

Finally, Mediatek brought to the stage two additional chips to power the lower mid-range phones of tomorrow. One is Dimensity 930 with faster connectivity than the 920 and support for 120Hz Full HD+ displays with HDR10+. The second is Helio G99, which is an evolution of the LTE-only Helio G96, built on the 6nm platform, instead of 12nm.

Your point can also apply on the CPU inside the D1050: remember the D1050 has 2x A78 + 6x A55 configuration, versus 4x A76 + 4x A55 in the 800 and 1000. Best case scenario, it would perform just as good while offering major power savings, but I bet m...

no and yes. Dimensity 1050 have stronger a78 cpu cores. I hope the 1050's gpu will be stroger than 1000's. Dimensity 1050's Mali G610 is strong, but how will it compete to mali g77 mc9(9 cores) to mali g610 mc3(3 cores)

Yes - their chips are impressive and catching Qualcomm up in terms of technological advancement, no - their naming scheme is confusing, just like Qualcomm Snapdragon does. It's not impossible for buyers getting misled by the numbers and judge th...
