Based on its specifications and a leaked performance metric, it is reasonable to assume that the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 packs quite a punch. But the question is, does it pack enough power to get featured alongside a gaming smartphone? Redmi CEO Lu Weibing seems to be of the impression that it can, as he talked about a future Redmi-branded gaming smartphone that will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200.

The information comes from Weibing's official Weibo handle (via GSMArena) where he sings praises of the Dimensity 1200. He also confirms that one Redmi K40 variant will come with the silicon, which we've known for quite some time. The yet-to-be-announced device will also be Xiaomi's first-ever gaming smartphone under the Redmi brand. Although the Redmi-branded gaming smartphone might not be able to compete with Xiaomi's Black Shark line of gaming smartphones, it should, at the very least, serve as a low-cost alternative.

Weibing rounds things off by saying that the Redmi gaming smartphone will focus on e-sports. Xiaomi could partner up with Tencent to that effect, as it is arguably one of the largest names in the mobile e-sports industry. Furthermore, the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 supports FHD+ screens clocked at 165Hz, making it an ideal candidate for a smartphone tailor-made for use under a competitive environment.
