Rumor | Dimensity 8000-powered phones are coming from Realme and Redmi
MediaTek has reportedly previewed the Dimensity 8000 SoC in the process of unveiling its latest top-end mobile SoC, the 9000. It is slated to be an upgraded version of the 1100 that came before it, albeit one that can support a display with a refresh rate of up to 168Hz (so long as it is FHD+ in resolution), up-to-date LPDDR5 RAM and storage chips with UFS 3.1 speeds.
They are apparently to be released by Realme and Redmi , who did take the reportedly upcoming near-premium chipset's predecessor up this year in the Q3 Pro and the Note 10 Pro (or POCO X3 GT, in certain markets).
Despite this, both brands might switch product lines with respect to the 8000. Realme is now slated to succeed the GT Neo2 with a device powered by the new chipset, whereas one is now expected to join the K50 family as its vanilla variant.
On the other hand, there is no word on when exactly this "K50" or the "GT Neo3" might launch.
