MediaTek today revealed its second SoC (System-on-Chip) for 5G phones: the Dimensity 820. The 820 is a more affordable relative of the Dimensity 1000, announced late last year. Dimensity chips integrate an application processor and 5G modem in one package, like Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765. The 820 supports advanced 5G technologies including carrier aggregation, DSS, VoNR, and SA. Like the Dimensity 1000, the 820 only supports sub-6 GHz 5G, not mmWave. The 820 also supports cameras up to 80 megapixels, 4K HDR video capture, and 120 MHz displays. It also has a dedicated AI processing cores. MediaTek says the Dimensity 820 is designed for 5G networks in "Asia, North America, and Europe", although it did not give a timeline for devices using the 820 to reach the market.
