MediaTek has been lagging behind Qualcomm for years in terms of flagship mobile chipset. To solve it, the Taiwanese chipmaker announced Dimensity 1000 late last year. It has been over 5 months but still, we haven’t seen any smartphone with this SoC. Amidst this, the company has announced an improved version of this chip called Dimensity 1000+.
There’s no major difference between the old Dimensity 1000 and the new Dimensity 1000+. The new ‘Plus’ variant is similar to what Qualcomm did last year with Snapdragon 855+.
Below mentioned are the new additions in the MediaTek Dimnesity 1000+
- 144Hz FHD+
- HyperEngine 2.0
- Resource Management Engine for minimal power consumption during gameplay
- Upgraded Network Engine enables call and data concurrency as well as intelligent switching between 5G and 4G.
- Rapid Response Engine enables lag-free gaming experience with multi-peripheral co-existence
- MiraVision Engine
- AI-PQ enhances 4K videos in real-time by dynamically adjusting per frame contrast, sharpness and color levels.
- Enhanced HDR10+
- SDR to HDR conversion
Apart from the above-mentioned new features, the Dimnesity 1000+ is basically a Dimensity 1000 from top to bottom.
Strangely, we are yet to see a smartphone powered by Dimensity 1000. On the other hand, iQOO has already confirmed to be the first to launch a smartphone with the newly announced Dimensity 1000+.
