Taiwanese chipmaker MediaTek has introduced two new chipsets for mobile phones: Dimensity 1200 and Dimensity 1100.
The Dimensity 1200 is the company's first 6nm chipset and arrives as the successor to the Dimensity 1000+ model. The chip enables speeds up to 3GHz and has dual 5G SIM support. The company has applied a 1 + 3 + 4 configuration for the SoC, which means it uses 1 x ARM Cortex-A78 CPU speeds up to 3GHz, 3 x ARM Cortex-A78 CPU cores up to 2.6GHz and ARM Cortex-A55 CPU speeds up to 2GHz.
On the other hand, the Dimensity 1100 does not have the main core and consists of 4 x ARM Cortex-A78 CPUs up to 2.6GHz and 4 x Cortex-A55 CPUs up to 2GHz. Both chipsets have a Mali-G77 MC9 GPU.
The Dimensity 1200 and Dimensity 1100 chipsets support FHD + and QHD + resolutions, with the stronger model supporting screen refresh rates up to 168Hz, while the Dimensity 1100 supports refresh rates up to 144Hz. Common to both chips is support for 16GB of LPPDR4x RAM, UFS 3.1 storage, APU 3.0, Wi-Fi 6, GPS, Bluetooth 5.2.
When it comes to cameras, dual systems with sensors up to 32MP + 16MP are supported. The Dimensity 1200 can support camera sensors up to 200MP, while the Dimensity 1100 supports 108MP cameras.
Xiaomi, OPPO, Vivo, and Realme are some of the companies that will soon release phones with Dimensity 1200 and Dimensity 1100 chipsets, and the first among them is expected in late March or early April.
