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.


We expect the Dimensity 1200 to appear in phones from Vivo, OPPO, realme, and iQOO after it is announced. We may even see the chipset power phones from Honor and Huawei.
