Is this another rebrand or a whole new mid-range chipset for the mid-range market
It’s confirmed today that MediaTek’s newest mid-range smartphone chipset is available. Its name is Dimensity 6100+, and if you’re old enough, it will probably remind you of an AMD Athlon XP processor. It supports Sub-6 5G; mmWave is not supported.
Six Cortex-A55 cores and two Cortex-A76 cores make up its CPU. The chipset supports 10-bit 90 Hz or 120 Hz displays, “AI-powered cameras” (up to 108 MP) with “2K” 30 fps video capture, and “UltraSave 3.0+ technology,” which provides 20% less 5G power consumption than “competitive solutions,” whichever those may be.
“AI-bokeh” enables “stunning portraits and selfies,” and MediaTek is collaborating with Arcsoft to introduce “AI-color” technology to popular smartphones “so users can showcase their creativity.” No, we also have no idea what any of that implies.
But once the first products using this chip are available for purchase, which is anticipated to happen sometime in the third quarter of this year, or from now until the end of September, we will undoubtedly learn more.
