Recently, we have heard Redmi is developing a new smartphone powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ chip. And though there has been nothing official, according to rumors, the phone’s configuration has repeatedly changed. Moreover, the name of the phone has been changed as well. As for the latest rumors and leaks, recently, some users discovered a new device called the ‘Redmi K30 Ultra’ in the latest MIUI 12 beta version. Moreover, it was said to sport the Dimensity 1000+ chip.
At present, except for the Redmi 10X/10X Pro, almost all 5G smartphones launched by Xiaomi and Redmi feature the Qualcomm chipsets. And now, it is said that Redmi’s next 5G phone will be equipped with the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+.
Note: MediaTek’s Dimensity 1000 series SoC contains three versions – Dimensity 1000, Dimentisy 1000L, and Dimensity 1000+.
MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ SoC
The MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ will bring a smoother viewing experience and faster 5G networking. The new chipset houses 5G UltraSave technology to efficiently and effectively save battery consumption when using faster bandwidths. It throttles between different networks and automatically adjusts the mode of the modem.
The MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ also brings MediaTek Miravision which enhances the 4K rendering with the help of APU 3.0, and also brings support for HDR 10+. It even houses HyperEngine 2.0 which enables low-latency connectivity with wireless devices like WiFI, Earphones, and Gaming pads. Moreover, it smartly switches between 5G and 4G network to reduce the power consumption and resource usage. The WiFi and Bluetooth utilize the new anti-interference technology for flawless parallel transmission.
Many have been thinking that such a chip will be more expensive than the upcoming Snapdragon 875. Moreover, many were doubting whether it can compete with the latter. Li Yanji, a MediaTek executive said that market competition will always exist, and price competition will always exist.
‘What we can do is to launch 5G chips that are more competitive, have more performance advantages, and have more power consumption advantages than other competitors. In this market, our partners should recognize us. The market continues to develop, and competition will never stop. I think MediaTek is fully ready.’
Redmi K30 Ultra
The ‘Redmi K30 Ultra’ with a code-name ‘cezanne’ may be the first Redmi smartphone coming with the Dimensity 1000 series chipset.
MIUI 12 code also revealed that this phone will sport a 64MP main camera and a pop-up selfie camera.
Apart form this, we have heard that the forthcoming Redmi Dimensity 1000+ smartphone will come with a 120Hz AMOLED screen. And it will support on-screen fingerprint sensor. Under the hood, it will carry a 4500mAh battery and support 33W fast charging.
We are waiting for this phone to hit the market in July.
