Less than half a year after introducing the Dimensity 800 processor for mid-range 5G smartphones, MediaTek has unveiled a more powerful version called the Dimensity 820.

While the basic features are similar, the new chip has faster top speeds, adds an extra graphics processing core, and supports higher-resolution cameras.

Among other things, MediaTek says the chip can support devices with up to an 80MP camera (or dual camera systems with 32+16MP resolutions), screens with refresh rates up to 120 Hz, and HDR10+ video playback with real-time SDR to HDR processing.

Here’s where the MediaTek Dimensity 820 fits into the company’s current chip lineup:
