MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ revealed with support for 144 Hz displays
I guess MediaTek missed the memo where Qualcomm isn’t releasing a Snapdragon 865+, and went ahead to make the Dimensity 1000+. The chipset is heavily based on the regular Dimensity 1000, with the main difference being added support for 144 Hz displays on top of the 120 Hz display support that the Dimensity 1000 already offers.
The support for faster refresh rates also come with a new MiraVision image quality engine that enhances SDR video to HDR 10+, improving the visual fidelity of visual content on Dimensity 1000+ smartphones. The feature set is further fleshed out with stuff like 5G network support which MediaTek supplements with their 5G UltraSave technology to deliver up to 32% lower power consumption.
In addition to that, HyperEngine 2.0 adds smart tuning for the CPU and GPU performance, network optimizations and a number of other technologies to deliver an even better gaming experience. Aside from these newly added features, the Dimensity 1000+ is expected to be pretty similar to the Dimensity 1000 in terms of specifications, with four Cortex-A77 performance cores, four Cortex-A55 efficiency cores and a Mali-G77MP9 GPU.
The first smartphone to feature the new chipset is going to be the iQOO Z1, so we will most probably not see it on our shores. Even the Dimensity 1000 has yet to appear in Malaysia, so I wouldn’t keep my hopes up too high to see this chipset in a smartphone offered here officially.
Pokdepinion: MediaTek does make some solid chips now, but after the recent benchmark cheating fiasco I doubt many OEMs would pick them to power their flagships…
