Recently, MediaTek announced that a new Dimensity series is coming on January 20. According to speculations, this processor will be a Dimensity 6nm flagship chip. In addition, MediaTek claims that this new chip uses superior technology and offers a better experience. Today, Lu Weibing, Vice President of Xiaomi Group, and General Manager of Redmi Brand reposted MediaTek’s preheating Weibo post. According to him, the Redmi K30 Extreme Edition with Dimensity 1000+ was very popular but it has come to an end.
His words…”The K30 Extreme Edition with Dimensity 1000+ is extremely popular, and it has now reached the end of the product. In 2021, the new Dimensity flagship chip is coming soon”
This suggests two things. Firstly, Reedmi will discontinue the production of the Redmi K30 Extreme Edition. Secondly, Redmi may be the first to launch the upcoming MediaTek Dimensity 6nm flagship chip.
In August last year, the Redmi K30 Extreme Commemorative Edition was released. This smartphone comes with a 120Hz AMOLED pop-up screen. Under the hood, it has the Dimensity 1000+ and a large VC heat dissipation sink. It comes with Sony’s 64MP main camera in a quad-rear camera setup. This smartphone also supports a 50mm telephoto camera, dual speakers, 4500 mAh and, 33W flash charging.
According to @DigitalChatStation, MediaTek will release the new MT689x in the middle of this month. He believes that this chip is the MediaTek 6nm flagship chip and it is a high-performance processor.
According to reports, MediaTek has two 5/6nm chips about to launch, one of which is a 6nm chip MT6893. This chip reportedly adopts the ARM Cortex-A78 core design and the highest frequency of the main core is 3.0GHz. As of now, there are no official details regarding this chip, just rumors, and speculations.
MediaTek MT689x SoC will have a similar performance to the Snapdragon 865+
The Dimensity line turned out to be successful for MediaTek and this gave acceleration to the chipmaker, who now plans to return to the flagship segment. Among the future innovations is the MediaTek MT689x chip, which in a number of parameters will be similar to the Exynos 1080 processor and will demonstrate similar performance.
According to the insider Digital Chat Station, the new processor will be created using 6-nanometer technology and will receive the Mali-G77 graphics accelerator. The source claims that the MT689X will receive an architecture; and clock speeds similar to those offered by the Exynos 1080. If this information is reliable, the cores will be grouped according to the “1 + 3 + 4” scheme; and among them, there will be a place for high-performance Cortex-A78 cores.
According to the results of the AnTuTu test, the MT689X chip will gain more than 600 thousand points; which indicates that in terms of its power it will be as close as possible to the Snapdragon 865+. At the same time, the SoC itself will be inexpensive and will find its application in smartphones with a price tag of about $300. But when MediaTek plans to introduce the new hardware platform, there is no information.
