MediaTek's Dimensity 1100 is a new SoC with the same kind of cores (ARM Cortex-A78 and A55) found in its more premium sibling, albeit in a conventional 4+4 layout whereas the 1200 may benefit from a more cutting-edge 1+3+4 configuration. Potential performance differences aside, it is now just possible the 1100 might be first to launch in a new Vivo phone discovered on Google's Play Console.
This resource reportedly gives the upcoming device's model number as V2072A (which matches the OEM's typical convention), although it lacks a real product name as yet. Its new pre-launch listing shows that it is powered by the MediaTek MT6891 processor - the Dimensity 1100.
This is confirmed by further specs confirming its new core layout, as well as its 9-core Mali G77 GPU. Otherwise, it seems this V2072A has a very modern 12GB of RAM and Android 11-based UI (presumably OriginOS). Its new Play Console listing does not mention a display size, but does mention an FHD+ resolution.
This implies scope for an up-to-144Hz refresh rate, which is as high as the 1100 can go in that respect. Therefore, it is particularly surprising that the only image included in the leak shows a front panel with a decidedly old-fashioned notch.
Then again, this could still be a placeholder while Google compiles the "Vivo V2072A" database entry in full. Unfortunately, this is unlikely to extend to launch, pricing or availability information for the upcoming, possibly world-first, Dimensity 1100-based phone.
