MediaTek is expected to announce a new chipset later this month, and while official details are scant, leaks have given us an early insight as to what to expect. Now, a fresh leak has provided more info such as the name of the chipset which is said to be called Dimensity 1200, among other details.
The upcoming processor is a 6nm chipset, a first for the manufacturer. The shift to a smaller node size should definitely bring an increase in performance and efficiency, and that it does according to Digital Chat Station.
The Chinese leaker revealed via a Weibo post that he has seen the specification sheet and from what he saw, it is a more powerful chipset than the Snapdragon 865. The increased performance is said to be (partly) due to having a higher frequency. This should mean that the chipset is clocked higher than the Snapdragon 865 whose clock speed is 2.84GHz.
The Dimensity 1000+ is clocked at 2.6GHz, and a leak already revealed that the Dimensity 1200 will have its prime A78 core clocked at 3.0GHz It will also have three A78 cores clocked at 2.6GHz, and four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0GHz.
Other details mentioned by the leaker reveal that CPU performance is not the only upgrade MediaTek’s new chipset has got. He also mentioned a better 5G modem and an improved Image Signal Processor (ISP) which should help phones capture better photos than the previous generation chipset.
