In addition to revealing details about the chipset, it has also been confirmed that Realme will launch the first Dimensity 1200-powered phone in India.

MediaTek claims that the Dimensity 1200 chipset delivers up to 22% faster CPU (central processing unit) performance than its predecessor. Simultaneously, the company says it is 25% more efficient.

The Dimensity 1200 chipset is aimed at taking on the Snapdragon 888, which is Qualcomm’s latest flagship chipset. It is built on the 6nm fabrication process while the Snapdragon 888 is built on a 5nm LPE (Low Power Early) process.

The Dimensity 1200 chipset is capable of handling Full HD+ resolution displays with a maximum refresh rate of 168GHz, which could benefit gaming smartphones in case they have higher refresh rate displays – like the ROG Phone 5 which has a 144Hz refresh rate display.

In terms of 5G connectivity, the Dimensity 1200 supports a wide range of features like 5G carrier aggregation for enhanced speeds, true dual SIM 5G for seamless connectivity between multiple SIMs, and Voice over New Radio (VoNR), which promises significantly lower latency and improved call and picture quality.

It also supports Wi-Fi 6 and has dual transmitters and receivers for better upload and download performance. MediaTek has included Bluetooth 5.2 Low Energy support as well, reducing power consumption and latency by up to 20%.
