The MediaTek Dimensity 800 is a new processor that may make 5G even more mid-range in 2020. Now, a reliable Weibo tipster asserts that Redmi is to be the first OEM to bring it to the mobile-device market in 2020. It is an outside possibility that the phone in question could be of the Note 9 series.

MediaTek launched the Dimensity 800 SoC at CES 2020. This silicon, as the name suggests, is a next-tier-down version of the flagship 1000 processor. It is to feature 8 cores, all of which are clocked at up to 2.0GHz, alongside a GPU and APU that have 4 cores each.

These companies may be led by Redmi, the Xiaomi spin-off with some particularly successful premium and sub-premium phones of its own, including the Note 8 series of 2019. This claim has been made in a new social media post by the increasingly well-known leaker Digital Chat Station.

Should this tip prove valid, the brand may deliver a phone that supports display refresh rates of up to 90Hz. In addition, MediaTek claims that the Dimensity 800 can supply many of the same AI camera enhancements as the 1000. Finally, this new putative Redmi could offer 5G, albeit of the sub-6GHz and dual-mode variety only.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
