Recently, LG announced the Velvet 5G smartphone for T-mobile in the US. Recall that the LG Velvet 5G was first unveiled packing a Dimensity 800 processor. But the spectacular thing about the US version is that it came with a Dimensity 1000C chip.
T-Mobile’s Velvet 5G happens to be the first smartphone that’ll be powered by the new MediaTek chipset. The phone is also the first model to pack a Dimensity chipset launched outside of China.
The Dimensity 1000C is the latest chip in the flagship 1000-series. The chip is manufactured using a 7nm process node and features four Arm-Cortex-A77 CPU cores and four power-efficient Arm Cortex-A55 cores operating up to 2GHz, with a large, low-latency communal cache that improves performance and power-efficiency even further. The chip bundles the Mali-G57 GPU which gives it a 25% performance boost compared to the Dimensity 800.
The Velvet 5G manages a single-core score of 601 on GeekBench. On the multi-core test, it scored a total of 2365. When compared to the Dimensiy 800-powered Honor X10 Max GeekBench result, the Velvet 5G achieves up to 11% increase in single-core performance. The multi-core performance also increased by up to 8%.
We can’t say if LG will release the phone in other markets but the model will go on sale tomorrow. It carries a decent price tag of $588.
