MediaTek’s latest chipsets, the Dimensity 1200 and Dimensity 1100, are both 6nm chipsets but its upcoming budget 5G chipsets under the Dimensity 700 and Dimensity 800 series may be built on larger node size.

Latest news says that the Taiwanese semiconductor company is planning to announce a new Dimensity 700 processor in the second quarter of the year while a new Dimensity 800 processor will be announced later at MWC 2021 which is scheduled for late June.

News of new chipsets should definitely sound exciting but that may not be the case for these new SoCs as it has been reported by Digitimes

that they may be built using TSMC’s more mature 10nm or 12nm process. That sure sounds like the manufacturer is regressing seeing as the Dimensity 700 and Dimensity 800 chipsets are fabbed on TSMC’s 7nm node.

Sources have said that the focus for these new chips will be power-efficiency, sub-6GHz support, and multimedia and gaming performance. Our guess is that the chipsets will feature a CPU configuration with four Cortex-A55 cores and two Cortex-A76 cores. Differences between the chipsets should include CPU clock speed, maximum resolution display support, and number of GPU cores and clock speed.

These chipsets will go head-to-head against Qualcomm’s own Snapdragon 480 5G processor which has been released for entry-level and budget 5G smartphones.
