Taiwanese fabless chipmaker MediaTek earlier today announced the Dimensity 1000+ flagship chipset at an online event in China. The company announced via a Weibo post that iQOO mobile phone will be the first to spot the Dimensity 1000+. iQOO has now confirmed via Weibo that it will indeed release a smartphone with MediaTek’s latest chipset and it will be launched soon.
The Dimensity lineup by MediaTek has proven to be a reliable and solid lineup, at least going by benchmark ranking. Unfortunately, most OEMs have continued to boycott the lineup with just a few phones using them, like the OPPO Reno3 which is powered by the Dimensity 1000L. The new Dimensity 1000+ flagship SoC brings several improvements over the Dimensity 1000, one of which is a higher 144Hz refresh rate.
iQOO already has a smartphone that supports 144Hz refresh rate and that is the iQOO Neo3 5G. The new MediaTek Soc also has a new HyperEngine 2.0 which improves the gaming performance in the new chip. The chipset also supports SA and NSA dual-mode 5G networking and is the only chip in the industry that supports 5G + 5G dual SIM/dual standby and is equipped with 5G dual-carrier aggregation technology. Thus, users will always remain online when they get incoming calls.
The phone maker is yet to reveal the name of the phone that would bear the new processor. There are speculations that it will be the iQOO Neo3 Racing Edition or Neo3 Dimensity Edition. Recall that the first-gen iQOO Neo got a Snapdragon 855+ version dubbed iQOO Neo Racing Edition.
