Mediatek is introducing chipset after chipset for the growing 5G market. After we saw the Dimensity 800 and Dimensity 1000 back in January, a more powerful follow-up called Dimensity 1000+ was recently unveiled with the vivo iQOO Z1.

Today, the Weibo profile of the company teased another 5G chipset, and it might be a Dimensity 800+ with a mightier GPU and improved features for gaming.

on the market when it launches. And with a midrange platform like the Dimensity 800+, it could go below the CNY2,000 ($280) threshold.

We’ll have to wait four more days until the event, but you are free to share in the comments what do you think Mediatek has in store for us.
