There is a huge battle in the smartphone industry and many phone makers are now improving their game. Also, MediaTek with its Dimensity 5G chips seems to be doing a great job. Earlier today, Lu Weibing, the general manager of the Redmi brand revealed that the Redmi 10X will be the world’s first phone with the Dimensity 820 5G chip. He also took to his official Weibo handle to reveal that the AnTuTu score of this smartphone exceeds 410,000 points. Specifically, the Redmi 10X hit 415,672 points on AnTuTu.
With this score, Redmi 10X will obviously be the new mid-range “king” in town. Looking at the global top 10 best performing mid-range phone for April 2020, Huawei nova 7i with Kirin 810 tops the list with 308,853 points. The Dimensity 820 clearly outperforms this chip.
The Dimensity 820 is MediaTek’s new 7nm chip that comes with four big cores and four small cores. The large A76 cores have a speed of 2.6GHz while the small one is an A55 core. The Dimensity 820 processor uses the Mali-G57 MC5 GPU and the same Valhall architecture as the Dimensity 1000+. The Dimensity 820 processor uses the same APU architecture of the Dimensity 1000+, the independent AI processor APU3.0, and the Zurich running score is 300% of the Snapdragon 765G. 4-core architecture improves face recognition, image optimization, and AI video. The Dimensity 820 claims to be equipped with the world’s most advanced M70 5G baseband. It supports NSA / SA, 5G + 5G dual card dual standby, 5G dual-carrier aggregation.
The Redmi 10X recently appeared on GeekBench V5.1.1 database with model number M2003J15SC. The device comes with 6GB of RAM along with a MediaTek chipset (turns out to be the Dimensity 820). In terms of software, we’re looking at the latest Android 10 OS under the hood. Talking about the benchmark scores, the device managed to score 360 points in the single-core performance while it got 1287 points in multi-core testing.
From speculations, this smartphone should come with a 6.54-inch display while the resolution should be 1080 x 2340 pixels. The display will feature a punch-hole on the top left corner for the front selfie camera. We should see a quad-camera module having a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultrawide lens, and two 2MP sensors. For selfies, there is going to be a 13MP front shooter.
