The well-known Chinese blogger Digital Chat Station has just revealed some really interesting updates on MediaTek's next 5G SoC, the MT6893, which he always thinks we will find on the next Redmi K40 in the standard version.
Redmi K40 will adopt the new MediaTek MT6893 with Cortex A78 at 6nm
Specifically, Digital Chat Station claims that the MediaTek MT6893 chip adopts a 6nm production processor and uses ARM's latest Cortex A78 architecture, with a 78GHz Cortex A3,0 super core, three Cortex A78 2,6 big cores. , 55 GHz and four Cortex A2,0 cores that run at a frequency of 77 GHz. While on the graphics side, the onboard GPU will be a Mali-G9 MCXNUMX.
This hardware combination will be able to bring about an increase in CPU performance of around 22%, with the GPU seeing an improvement of around 13% instead. The SoC also supports the Dual SA 5G network and we have a new ISP that supports image sensors with a maximum resolution of 200MP.
As for the market name of the new chip, this should be MediaTek Dimensity 1200.
Compared to SoCs like the Snapdragon 888, Exynos 1080, and other chips that all use ARM's latest Cortex A78, the MediaTek MT6893 is the first with a 78nm Core A6 manufactured by MediaTek.
If we compare it to the Dimensity 1000+ which adopts a Cortex A77 architecture with an Antutu execution score exceeding 500.000 points, the overall score of the MediaTek MT6893 should surpass 600.000 points without any problems.
In any case, as previously mentioned, the Chinese blogger confirmed that Redmi will use this chip on the standard Redmi K40 version. So very similar to the Redmi K30 Ultra presented last year with Dimensity 1000+ chipset. At the time of official we only know that the new Redmi series will be officially presented next month and that at least the Pro version will use Qualcomm's more performing Snapdragon 888.
