In May, MediaTek announced the Dimensity 1000+ 5G as an improved version of the Dimensity 1000 SoC. The iQOO Z1 that debuted in the same month is the first phone to feature the Dimensity 1000+ 5G. It arrived with an enticing starting price of 2,198 Yuan. According to a tipster from China, Xiaomi or Redmi will be releasing a smartphone powered by the Dimensity 1000+ SoC.
The tipster did not share any details on the specs of the Xiaomi / Redmi phone that is expected to arrive with the Dimensity 1000+ SoC. Considering that the Snapdragon 865 powered Redmi K30 Pro’s price has reached as low as 2,197 Yuan (~$310) for the 618 sales in China, the Dimensity 1000+ SoC powered Xiaomi / Redmi phone may cost around 2,000 Yuan (~$282).
The Dimensity 1000+ comes with four CortexA-A77 CPU cores working at up to 2.6GHz and four power-efficient Cortex-A55 CPU cores ticking at up to 2GHz. For graphics, it features Mali-G77 MC9 GPU. The 7nm chipset support Full HD+ resolution with up to 144Hz refresh rate. It is equipped with the new MiraVision image quality engine. It is the only chip in the industry that carries support for 5G + 5G dual SIM card dual standby.
The same tipster has previously claimed that Xiaomi is working on a new smartphone with a 144Hz punch-hole display. It could be the forthcoming Dimensity 1000+ SoC powered phone from the brand. The handset may break cover at some point in July.
Xiaomi or Redmi is yet to confirm the existence of its Dimensity 1000+ SoC powered handset. The rumor mill is expected to reveal more information on it in the coming days.
