The Dimensity 8200 still isn’t official, but we already know that it will power up Xiaomi Redmi phones and the upcoming iQOO 7 SE. And now thanks to prolific tipster Digital Chat Station We get the SoC’s key specs and they suggest a minor upgrade over the Dimensity 8100.
It would employ the same 4x Cortex-A78 and 4x Cortex-A55 cores, but in a different configuration at higher clock speeds. The A78 will be divided into two clusters – 1x Cortex-A78 clocked at 3.1 GHz and 3x Cortex-A78 running at 3.0 GHz. The four efficiency Cortex-A55 cores remain at 2.0 GHz.
For comparison, the Dimensity 8100’s Cortex-A78 run at 2.85 GHz, so MediaTek bumped up the clock speeds quite a bit. The Mali-G610 MC6 GPU remains the same, though. Lastly, the tipster says that the SoC’s AnTuTu performance likely exceeds the 900,000 points barrier.
The report ends with some price predictions for future Redmi and iQOO smartphones running the said silicon. Apparently, they won’t exceed the CNY 2,000 barrier, which in dollars is $280. Sure, this price doesn’t include taxes and other price components in western markets, but it still sounds quite competitive.
