Mediatek supplies mobile processors to mid-range and entry-level smartphone manufacturers. But lately, the company has been actively working on releasing more efficient systems-on-a-chip.
According to knowledgeable sources, Mediatek is currently working on a new mobile processor MT689x (the latter figure is unknown). This platform provides for production according to the 6-nanometer technological process norms and will have the same architecture as the upcoming Samsung Exynos 1080 chipset. So far, not all the characteristics of the Mediatek MT689x chipset have been disclosed. It is known that he will receive the graphics core Mali-G77. The leak claims the mobile processor scores over 600K in the AnTuTu benchmark, comparable to the Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 865+ chipsets.
The new chip is likely to be the result of an upgrade to the Dimensity 1000+ single-chip platform manufactured according to the 7nm process technology. Smartphones based on it will be available in the Chinese market for about $ 300.
