MediaTek, one of the chipset manufacturers for mobile devices, has confirmed that it will hold a launch event on January 20th.
MediaTek announced that it will organize a new event on January 20th. It is among the rumors that the company will introduce a new chipset belonging to the Dimensity series at this event. Apart from that, MediaTek also stated that the subject that will be brought to the agenda during the event is “Sensation”. Sensation has topics to talk about new products that will bring superior technology and an improved experience.
This launch announcement by MediaTek proves the accuracy of the leak previously shared by the Digital Chat Station. According to this leak, the chipset in question is MT689x, which will be available at the end of January. This is also the company’s first 6nm chipset. There are two new Dimensity series chipsets planned to be introduced at launch. One of them is MT6893 using ARM Cortex-A78 kernel. Unfortunately, there is no information about the other chipset. It should also be noted that both will be produced with 6nm process technology.
Chipsets are likely to come with the Mali G77 GPU for graphics processing. Reports also show that the upcoming MediaTek chipset will have the same design configuration as the Samsung Exynos 1080 powering the newly launched vivo X60 series. Also, for those who do not know, MediaTek’s Dimensty series mobile chipsets also offer next-generation 5G communication technology support.
MediaTek has so far produced chipsets that can take place in price performance devices and mid-segment phones in the Dimensity series. Thanks to increased sales, the company became TSMC’s third largest customer. A few months ago, it was also selected as the leading supplier of smartphone chipsets, successfully surpassing Qualcomm in the third quarter of 2020.
