New leak suggests that the MediaTek Dimensity 7000 could be launched as the Dimensity 8000

MediaTek's putative Dimensity 7000 SoC is actually called the Dimensity 8000, according to a new leak. It is expected to perform on par with the Snapdragon 870 and will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

The Dimensity 9000 was the proverbial star of MediaTek's event from earlier today. However, the company also shed light on one of its lower-specced siblings, the Dimensity 8000. A cursory glance at its spec sheet shows that it is strikingly similar to the Dimensity 7000 from earlier. Now, it is entirely possible that MediaTek is working on a Dimensity 7000; however, it will probably be a step below the Dimensity 8000. MediaTek is expected to unveil it soon, although there is no word about an exact release date.

The MediaTek Dimensity 8000 will follow its predecessor (Dimensity 1100, in a manner of speaking) when it comes to its core configuration. It, too, will feature four Cortex-A78 and Cortex-A55 cores. However, the former will be clocked at 2.75GHz and the latter at 2.0GHz. An ARM Mali G510-MC6 will handle the graphics side of things. Furthermore, the MediaTek Dimensity 8000 will also support LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.1 storage, 168Hz FHD+/120Hz QHD+ screens.

One can't help but wonder why MediaTek opted to use previous-generation ARM CPU architecture for the Dimensity 8000. To make matters worse, the lack of a 'prime' core could affect its single-core performance, especially against the likes of the Snapdragon 870, which it hopes to compete against. Preliminary tests seem to agree with that hypothesis, but it is far too early to comment on the matter, given that MediaTek is yet to launch the Dimensity 8000 officially.
