We have been hearing rumors about the mysterious MediaTek MT6893 flagship chip for a while now and we can finally put a name on it. According to a new leak from a Chinese tipster, the upcoming MediaTek chip will be called the Dimensity 1200 and it will be more powerful than Qualcomm’s last flagship chip, the Snapdragon 865.
Renowned tipster Digital Chat Station claims to have read the technical paper for the Dimensity 1200 SoC, which revealed a few specifications for the chip. According to the tipster, the MediaTek chip will have higher clock speeds than the Snapdragon 865, which will translate into overall better performance. The Dimensity 1200 will also feature an upgraded ISP for better camera performance and will have some 5G related improvements.
This goes along with previous reports that showed the MediaTek SoC outperforming Snapdragon 865 in benchmarks and now we have reason to believe them. All the leaks and reports are lining up in time for the announcement next week on January 20, which is where we expect to see the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 officially break cover.
There are also a number of other MediaTek chips lined up for this event, but these will be mid-range SoCs unlike the Dimensity 1200.
