MediaTek today announced its newest 5G smartphone chip, the Dimensity 1000C, debuted first in the United States with LG VELVET on T-Mobile’s 5G network.
The Dimensity 1000C will power LG VELVET and deliver advanced AI capabilities, enhanced display features, fast connectivity and improved multimedia capabilities for a premium user experience.
“From the world’s first standalone 5G data call to collaborating on their first 5G chipset in America, T-Mobile and MediaTek have partnered to move 5G innovation forward,” said Ryan Sullivan, VP of Product Development at T-Mobile.
The 7nm Dimensity 1000C features super fast 5G speeds and expands MediaTek’s 5G family of chipsets and its flagship series that delivers full premium 5G experiences for smartphone users.
“Compared to other parts of the world, consumers in the US haven’t had much choice on the chipset side when it comes to 5G smartphones,” said Dr. Yenchi Lee, Deputy General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit.
The Dimensity 1000C features four Arm-Cortex-A77 CPU cores and four power-efficient Arm Cortex-A55 cores operating up to 2 GHz, with a large, low-latency communal cache that improves performance and power-efficiency even further. Five Arm Mali-G57 GPU cores mean avid gamers have powerful graphics at their fingertips.
MediaTek Dimensity 1000 powered devices have already launched with key smartphone brands in other markets. The Dimensity 1000C was developed and tailored for the US market.
