MediaTek is known for making great budget SoCs and its new Dimensity series mobile SoCs defines flagship performance for mid-range smartphones. Also, both the Dimensity 1000L and Dimensity 800 SoCs have 5G support, enabling 5G options on mid-range devices as well.
Already we know that the Dimensity 1000L SoC is more powerful than the recently launched Snapdragon 765G but a MediaTek Dimensity 800-powered smartphone is yet to get launched.
The MediaTek Dimensity 800 Series is a performance powerhouse that pairs four big Arm Cortex-A76 cores operating up to 2GHz, with four power-efficient Arm Cortex-A55 cores operating at up to 2GHz. It is also backed by the new quad-core Mali-G77 MP9 GPU.
Xiaomi will be unveiling its Note 9 series on March 12 and we expect it to go big and it might be possible for the company to use this SoC on their most successful Redmi Note series. According to a Weibo post, the brand may deliver a phone that supports display refresh rates of up to 90Hz.
Using this SoC in a budget smartphone range might bolster Xiaomi’s success in India, unlike its competitor Realme who are pricing devices less aggressively this time. The Dimensity 800 can supply many of the same AI camera enhancements as the Dimensity 1000 along with 5G support.
