Taiwanese fabless semiconductor firm, Mediatek, is reportedly all set to launch the Dimensity 600 mobile processor with 5G connectivity. The chip can be officially launched during the present quarter. MediaTek was expected to launch the Dimensity 600 again in March. However, the corporate ended up announcing the Dimensity 1000+ as a substitute. It is a barely modified model of the Dimensity 1000 it had introduced last year.
Meanwhile, the most recent report further suggests that the corporate has already obtained numerous orders for the yet-to-be-launched chipset. It’s not difficult to understand why the Dimensity 600 is receiving such a large response from smartphone producers. While the Snapdragon 765 and Dimensity 800 platforms have already democratized 5G smartphones, the upcoming chipset is predicted to further cut back the value of 5G handsets and convey the technology to even more customers.
If rumors are to be believed, the Dimensity 600 may carry 5G handsets to the sub-Rs. 20,000 segment in India and the sub-$300 segment globally. There’s no actual phrase on which companies are putting orders for the upcoming chipset. However, most of those distributors are reportedly planning to launch their Dimensity 600-powered gadgets earlier than the end of the year.
Just a month after asserting the Dimensity 1000 5G chipset, MediaTek unveiled its Dimensity 800 mobile processor for mid-range gadgets with 5G connectivity. The chip is now making its way to mid-range smartphones. However, with the Dimensity 600, MediaTek seemingly needs to up the ante and attain an entire new audience. It can be fascinating to see the way it fares, given that potentially large markets for the Dimensity 600, like India, are unlikely to get 5G networks any time soon.
