The Dimensity 1000 processor series has already impressed the tech world with its benchmark performance; now, it may be time for its mid-range 800 counterparts to start showing what they can do, too. A possible indication to this effect comes in the form of a recent Geekbench listing for a strange MediaTek chipset clocked at 2GHz. It has managed single-core scores of just over 2500, along with multi-core results of approximately 8100.
The heretofore-unknown SoC achieves this through the medium of an Android 10, 8GB RAM device called the OPPO PDKM00. It is thought to gain the product name A92s on its launch. As that would make it part of a distinctly mid-tier series, this is the main pillar of the argument that it is a Dimensity 800 phone.
Another is the fact that the PDKM00 has revealed it is a dual-mode 5G device on passing through its TENAA assessment. This certification also specifies that it has a 3890mAh battery and quad 48+8+2+2MP cameras, which, according to its latest renders, are arranged in a square around a single flash within its rear-panel hump (hard to imagine where OPPO got that idea).
These "OPPO A92s" images also show it may come in white, pink and black colorways and have a dual punch-hole display (which is to be an FHD+ LCD panel). Other leaks suggest a nebulous "120Hz" spec, which could refer to its display refresh or touch-sampling rate (the latter is the more likely, frankly). Finally, the OPPO A92s is thought to launch in May 2020. Can Redmi beat it to the Dimensity 800 punch? This event may help us find out!
