Processors have become the focal point of our calls. Since the introduction of mobile phones they have a very useful function, but since smart phones are computers, their importance has increased.
For the last 10 years the competition has been between Mediatek and Qualcomm. And yes, it's true that the scales aren't as good as Apple, Samsung or Huawei creating their chipsets. Besides, it was common to see phones with a Helio or Snapdragon processor.
In recent years, however, Mediatek has disappeared from the high end and remained the most affordable option. That changed with Dimensity 1000, a processor that will revolutionize the market.
5G connectivity for cheap mobiles
It is becoming increasingly clear that 2020 will be the year of the big 5G, although there is not yet much integration in many countries. Manufacturers are already bringing this connection to their best phones, for example, all Snapdragon 865 smartphones that will be 5G.
But Mediatek knows that not everyone will buy a high-end terminal, so it has built a mid-range cellular processor, and has installed 5G. It will be called Dimensity 800.

Mediatek's mission is to find a competitor for phones that use the Snapdragon 700, processors that offer good performance in high-throughput and high-tech environments, and contain more value than the more powerful mobiles.
To do this, he will use the 5G module he introduced a few months ago, the Helio M70, which can achieve 4.7 Gbps download speeds and 2.5 Gbps downloads. This modem is compatible with SA and NSA networks and has an NR 2 Faction Carrier.
There are currently no technical details although the developer has announced that there will be a processor preview, and other details, on CES Las Vegas, which will take place between January 7 and 10, in less than two weeks.
