Mediatek to launch a 6nm chipset with architecture similar to Exynos 1080

Yordan, 10 November 2020

Mediatek has been supplying smartphone companies with plenty of midrange and entry-level chipset with 5G capabilities, but the company has been moving upwards recently and it now seems ready to take another step. According to one reliable leakster Digital Chat Station, the new platform will be based on the 6 nm process technology and will have the same architecture as the upcoming Exynos 1080 platform by Samsung.

The Mediatek chip has a model number of MT689x (the last digit is yet unknown) and will have a Mali-G77 GPU. The leakster Digital Chat Station claimed it will reach over 600,000 points on AnTuTu which would put it right next to the Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 865+ in terms of raw performance.

The new chip is likely going to be an update over the 7nm Dimensity 1000+ and there might be phones on the Chinese market that would run it and still manage to keep their final price around CNY2,000 - that’s about $300.

Such a price tag is not unusual in China - the Xiaomi Redmi K30 Ultra and the Realme X7 Pro employ the Dimensity 1000+ platform and they both start from the same ballpark of CNY1,999 - CNY2,199.
