MediaTek has focused heavily on its new chipset, the Dimensity 1000L. This is the chip that Oppo used in the Reno3. MediaTek is doing same with the Dimensity 800. We will get to see the chip in a Redmi phone soon, most likely the Redmi Note 9 series.
Lu Weibang may have just announced a new Redmi device sporting the MediaTek Dimensity 800 processor. He “retweeted” a post from MediaTek on Weibo, talking about the Dimensity 800 chip.
According to Weibang, the Dimensity 800 processor has gotten to the level of the Snapdragon 820. It is important to know that the Snapdragon 820 is in the mid-range level. However, it is still dated, compared to the MediaTek Dimensity 800.
Now, for Weibang to retweet that post, there is likely something cooking in that direction. The device with the Dimensity 800 processor is likely in the works already. But what smartphone could it be? We believe that it is likely the Redmi Note 9 series. Redmi already used this type of SoC in the Redmi Note 8 Pro. So we may just see the Dimensity 800 in the Redmi Note 9 Pro too.
The MediaTek Dimensity 800 is built on a 7nm lithographic process. It comes with a modem 5G for fast connection. The chip has an octa-core CPU (4 Cortex-A76 cores and 4 Cortex-A55 cores, all set to 2.0GHz). It will reportedly support up to 90Hz refresh rate.
