The chipset supports 120Hz WQHD+ and 180Hz Full HD+ displays, making content consumption an enjoyable experience.

The MediaTek Dimensity 8200 is powered by a flagship-level Imagiq 785 ISP and is capable of supporting 320MP photos as well as capturing 14-bit HDR video on three cameras simultaneously. It is also capable of recording cinematic videos by double camera capture for a natural bokeh effect.
