Weeks after Qualcomm unveiled the Snapdragon 765G mobile platform, MediaTek introduced the Dimensity 800 chipset at a quick press conference in Beijing. 

Designed to power midrange smartphones in 2020, the Dimensity 800 chipset has an integrated 5G modem and is a more affordable solution than the Dimensity 1000/L. The integrated 5G modem is the Helio M70 which was announced earlier this year; it is capable of delivering a theoretical maximum download speed of 4.7Gbps and upload speed of 2.5Gbps. 

MediaTek did not reveal any specs for the Dimensity 800 chipset, but shared that it will be showcased at CES 2020 next month.
