Digital Chat Station recently posted some interesting information on Twitter about the Redmi K50 and the GT Neo3. According to gsmarena, and according to the aforementioned tweet, the two phones will be launched with MediaTek 8000 chip. The rumor has been circulating since the official introduction of the Dimension 8000 as a weakened version of the much-anticipated Dimension 9000 chip. About a week ago, MediaTek unveiled its powerful new flagship, the 9,000 Diversity.
The 8000 Density 8000 chip is expected to be made with the 5-nanometer TSMC process instead of the 4000 dm 9000 process, and in addition MediaTek has older ARMv8 designs with four Cortex-A78 (2.75 GHz) and four-core A55 (2 GHz) cores (2) Use the new ARM Cortex-A710 and A510 designs in the construction of this chip.
According to gsmarena, the CPU will be offered in the 8000 Density chip along with the new Mali-G510 MC6 GPU; This GPU is twice as fast and 22% more efficient than its predecessor.
It provides 8000 resolution Full HD + resolution with 168Hz refresh rate and 120kHz QHD + refresh rate for both phones, allowing them to use LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 memory.
Given that both phones use the 8000 Dimension and similar specifications, the GT Neo3 and the Redmi K50 can be considered rivals in some cases; Just like the previous two generations of the two phones, the regular Redmi K40 and the GT Neo2 relay with the same chips, the Snapdragon 870, were introduced and the specifications of the two were very similar.
The GT Neo2 was unveiled in China in September 2021 (September 1400) and launched in the international market two months later; the Redmi K40 was slightly older than its rival and was launched in March 2021.
Shortly after the Redmi K40, Xiaomi launched the Poco F3 in the European market, and so it can be expected that the Redmi K50 and the GT Neo3 will be launched a few months apart.
It is worth noting that Lu Weibing, CEO of Xiaomi, had announced that 9000 diversity would be used in the Redmi K50, but according to recent rumors, it can be assumed that this claim only applies to the gaming version of the Redmi K50.
Dimension 9000 is also used in the new Oppo phone, the regular version of Oppo Find X4, but the pro version of this phone will use the 1st generation Snapdragon 8.
