MediaTek Dimensity chipsets will finally be available outside of China | TechRadar


Over the course of the last 12 months, MediaTek has revamped its chipset lineup with the launch of the Dimensity series, bringing 5G capabilities to lower price points. However, they were confined to Mainland China until now. That is finally about to change as MediaTek is now entering the U.S.

In November 2019, MediaTek announced its first high-end flagship chipset in years — the Dimensity 1000. Not only was it able to run shoulders with the competition, but also lowered the cost of 5G smartphones. The other members of the Dimensity family brought that entry point even lower. Almost a year and half a dozen SoCs later, MediaTek is finally going global.

A new chipset, called the MediaTek Dimensity 1000C will power mid-range 5G smartphones in the U.S. Specifically developed for the market, some of its key features include support for AV1 HDR which can be used for Netflix, YouTube and Twitch. It is also the company’s first chipset to support dual integrated voice wakeup to reduce power consumption while summoning Google Assistant or Alexa using the hotword. It is also the first one to support dual display output.
