We can confirm that at least four smartphones will use the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 in the first quarter of 2022. And now, a new report has surfaced online suggesting that both the Xiaomi Redmi K50 and Realme GT Neo3 will feature the MediaTek Dimensity 8000 chip.
The Dimensity 8000 chip was recently teased by MediaTek and there is very limited information about this SoC unlike the Dimensity 9000 chip that was released last month. But, we expect the Dimensity 8000 SoC to be a more affordable premium chipset for flagship smartphones.
According to popular tipster Digital Chat Station on Weibo, it seems this new chipset will power the upcoming Realme GT Neo3 and Redmi K50 smartphones.
Dimensity 8000 rumored specs
Details about the new MediaTek chip is very limited but so far rumor has it that it will be manufactured on TSMC’s 5nm process. It is also expected to come with ARMv8 ones – four Cortex-A78 (2.75 GHz) and four A55 (2.0 GHz) CPU cores paired with the new Mali-G510 MC6 GPU.
The GPU is said to be two times faster and 22% more efficient that its predecessor. Dimensity 8000 is expected to offer FHD+ at up to 168Hz and QHD+ at 120Hz display support, LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.1 storage.
Both Realme and Redmi has been using premium MediaTek chipsets in its devices. The Realme GT Neo 2T and Redmi K40 Gaming edition both featured the Dimensity 1200 5G chip. So, it’s coming as a total surprise that phones from these companies will use a MediaTek chip next year.
Xiaomi’s VP and General Manager of Redmi Lu Weibing already confirmed that the flagship Dimensity 9000 chip will also be coming to the Redmi K50 line as well. OPPO might also feature same chip in its Find X4 lineup next year.
