MediaTek has introduced a new processor for Android devices called Dimensity 1300. It is positioned as a solution for mid-range performance smartphones and boasts both high processing power and advanced multimedia capabilities.
The SoC architecture, manufactured using the 6nm process technology, includes one “large” Cortex-A78 Ultra core with auto overclocking up to 3.0 GHz, three Cortex-A78s with a frequency of up to 2.6 GHz, and four energy-efficient Cortex-A55 (up to 2, 0 GHz). The ARM Mali-G77 MC9 graphics accelerator is responsible for the multimedia capabilities of the chip.
MediaTek Dimensity 1300 supports camera sensors up to 200MP and AI-assisted low-light enhancement technology. In addition, the ability to record 4K video and hardware support for the AV1 codec for streaming playback, as well as the HDR10 + standard, are announced.
Smartphones based on the new processor will “pull” up to 16 GB of LPDDR4X RAM (up to 4266 Mbps), UFS 3.1 drives and displays with a resolution of 2520×1080 (up to 168 Hz). Another feature of the chip was the support for two SIM-cards of the 5G standard. It is expected that the first devices based on the new processor will be the OnePlus Nord 2T and Redmi Note 12 series smartphones, which are scheduled for release in the second quarter of 2022.
