On May 14, MediaTek announced that it will hold a new product launch event at 2:30 pm on May 18. Not surprisingly, at this conference, the Taiwanese chip maker will launch the MediaTek Dimensity 800 series chips. As you can guess, it is MediaTek’s mid-range 5G SoC.
The MediaTek Dimensity 800 chip has been already commercialized. And the first model is the OPPO A92s. According to the official introduction, the Dimensity 800 consists of four ARM Cortex-A76 cores running at up to 2GHz and four energy-efficient ARM Cortex-A55 cores running at up to 2GHz. The startup speed is faster and the performance of multi-threaded operations is improved. Its GPU is the Mali-G57 MC4.
In addition to the MediaTek Dimensity 800, this conference will also launch the MediaTek Dimensity 800+. According to the initial information at this moment, the latter has a higher CPU frequency and stronger performance.
Redmi to use Dimensity 800 series chips as well!
It is worth noting that in addition to the OPPO A92s, Xiaomi will also use this SoC in some of its upcoming mid-range handsets. Previously, Lu Weibing, president of Xiaomi Group China and general manager of the Redmi brand, had hinted that Redmi would use the MediaTek Dimensity 800 chip. So there is every reason to think the Redmi Note series will be the first in Xiaomi line to come with this chip. Probably, we will see it in the Redmi Note 10 or the Redmi Note 9.
The source pointed out that the Redmi Note series are divided into standard version and Pro version. So the will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 800 and MediaTek Dimensity 800+ chips respectively.
Lu Weibing previously hinted that Redmi will have a surprise this month, suggesting that the new product launch will be scheduled for May, possibly in late May. At the event, we are also waiting for the RedmiBook notebook.
