T-Mobile’s LG Velvet has a different processor inside, and it’s an interesting choice – The Verge

We weren’t huge lovers of the LG Velvet, the style and design-initially, specs-2nd flagship smartphone the corporation introduced this summer months. The sleek cellular phone felt stuttery in our critique. But what if I explained to you the T-Cell variant comes with a diverse chip?

Currently, T-Mobile announced it’s introduced an LG Velvet to the United States with a MediaTek Dimensity 1000C processor within, instead of the mid-vary Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 and 765G it ordinarily employs. It’s a single of the initially situations in modern memory we have seen a MediaTek chip in a US flagship phone, so it is a major milestone for a firm that usually performs second-fiddle to Qualcomm, if absolutely nothing else.

The dilemma is no matter if T-Cellular is now giving you a quicker chip than the present LG Velvet can get you, and that is not very clear still. At initial look, it may well like you’re having a full tier higher chip in the correct very same phone, because (at the very least in anecdotal benchmarks) MediaTek’s Dimensity a thousand is no slouch: AnTuTu rated the company’s other Dimensity 1000+ and 1000L variants up close to Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 865, 855 and 855+ chips, as well as Huawei’s Kirin 980, 985 and 990.

But upon shut assessment, it appears that T-Cell and MediaTek are hoping to trick us with branding, due to the fact the genuine specs of this “Dimensity 1000C” hew significantly nearer to MediaTek’s less expensive Dimensity 800 instead. They both have octa-main CPUs and ARM Mali graphics, but where a Dimensity 1000 tops out at 2.6GHz and comes with 9 Mali-G77 GPU cores, the 1000C tops out at 2GHz with only 5 Mali-G57 GPU cores. (The Dimensity 800 is 2GHz but with 4 GPU cores the Dimensity 820 is 2.6GHz with 5.)

It is also perhaps a minimal telling that T-Mobile’s solution page at the moment states the telephone comes with a Dimensity 800, nevertheless a spokesperson tells us that will be corrected soon. A single point it does insert from the Dimensity a thousand series, while: AV1 hardware decoding, for the knowledge conserving online video streams that Netflix, YouTube, and other folks are rolling out.

Even now, the Dimensity 1000C could still be aggressive with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G, and it will not charge you more dollars: T-Cellular strategies to market it for $588 off-agreement, comparable to the $599 you are going to spend for the other product at AT&T, and significantly less than the $699 it prices for a Verizon product that supports its millimeter-wave 5G network.
