MediaTek Dimensity 800U Process

Similar to MediaTek 800, Dimensity 800U also uses the TSMC 7nm LPP process making it one of the best power-efficient SoCs in MTK lineup. It’s an N7 process. The only process better than is 7nm N7P and 7nm EUV.

MediaTek Dimensity 800U CPU

Dimensity 800U has a different configuration compared to it’s older brother Dimensity 800. It has an octa-core, dual-cluster design (2+6). There are  2 x high-performance Cortex-A76 cores  running @2.4GHz and  6 x power-efficient Cortex-A55 cores  running @2.0GHz. We can see how the Dimensity 800U is on the power-efficient side, while Dimensity 800 is on the performance side. Though, the single core performance of 800U is greater than 800.

MediaTek Dimensity 800U GPU

The GPU section also experiences a change. Much like Dimensity 800, it’s still the mid-performance ARM Mali-G57 but instead of 4 cores, it’s reduced to 3 cores only. This will be suitable for low to mid-end gaming including PUBG at mid graphics.

Assumed PUBG Mobile setting: Smooth (graphics) + High (frame rate)

MediaTek hasn’t highlighted the HyperEngine feature in this SoC, so we assume that it’s not present.

MediaTek Dimensity 800U AI

MediaTek doesn’t state that it has the same APU used in Dimensity 800 and 820. However, the company says that it has an AI acceleration and support AI camera features.

MediaTek Dimensity 800U AnTuTu Score

Since there’s no MediaTek Dimensity 800U phone at the moment, Dimensity 800U AnTuTu score are unknown. However, looking at the specs, we assume the score to be around 260,000 to 290,000 points.

Dimensity 800U Camera

The camera section has also been stripped down when compared to Dimensity 800. Now we have the single-camera support up to 64MP only and dual-camera support up to 20MP+16MP only. Like said, we do have AI camera features and other camera features are completely changed removing Video HDR / Video NR / Video Bokeh / Video EIS / AI-Shutter / AI-AE / AI-AF / AI-AWB / AI-NR HDR / AI-HDR / AI-FD and replacing them with HDR-ISP, Multi-Frame NR, 3D Noise Reduction, Depth Engine, Warping Engine, AI-FD.

In simple words, HDR mode has been removed along with some other AI camera features, leaving only the basic AI camera features. There’s no ImagiQ 5.0 ISP, that’s why.

MediaTek Dimensity 800U Connectivity

Similar to other Dimensity SoCs, Dimensity 800U also supports 5G dual-sim networking with a max speed of 2.3Gbps. Other connectivity features are dual-band WiFi support and Bluetooth 5.1 module. 5G-CA technology is also offered here which is too rare in mid-end SoCs. Moreover, MediaTek claims that their integrated 5G modem is world’s most power-efficient modem.

Other Features

While there are some features that have been removed from Dimensity 800U (HyperEngine 2.0, advanced AI filters), there are other features that have been added including Miravision (also present in 820), Voice Wakeup (VoW), and multiple voice assistants support.

Similar to Dimensity 800, the U version also support FHD+ resolution and the 120Hz screen refresh rate which is the greatest selling point.

The Verdict

Things to note:

  • 800U is the underpowered version of 800 and 820
  • There’s no APU 3.0 but AI accelerator instead
  • There’s no HyperEngine optimization
  • Camera features have been reduced

Things to appreciate:

  • 7nm process
  • Miravision and multiple voice assistants
  • Retained 2.0GHz frequency for Cortex A55 cores
  • Some new camera features added (but very basic)
  • 120Hz refresh rate
  • 5G dual SIM support

In short, it’s fine to say:

Dimensity 800U is the lite version of the Dimensity 800 which is targetted for the mid-end power-efficient 5G phones.
