MediaTek has also improved gaming performance on the 1000+, which features HyperEngine 2.0. With the Dimensity 1000+, MediaTek is aiming to offer a smooth experience, better gaming and enhanced 5G networking.

On the topic of enhanced 5G, the Dimensity 1000+ flaunts MediaTek’s proprietary 5G UltraSave technology, which helps in lowering the battery consumption while using the 5G bandwidth.

This has been achieved through automatic switching between networks and dynamically adjusting the working mode of the integrated 5G modem.

The aforementioned HyperEngine 2.0 is capable of making intelligent predictions based on network and bandwidth requirements to maintain seamless switching between 4G and 5G.
