MediaTek Dimensity 1200 – 2021 Flagship SoC from MediaTek, Detailed Specification and Overview.

The MediaTek Dimensity 1200 is here, its the successor to the Dimensity 1000/1000+, and while the Dimensty 1000 was not the best android flagship SoC out there, but it was surely the most cost-efficient Android flagship from the time of its release, and the same type of performance can be expected from Dimenstiy 1200, but as said by MediaTek, it’s now closer to the likes of Snapdragon 888, and Exynos 2100.

In this post, we will do a detailed specification overview, initial impressions, benchmarks, and smartphone which are expected to be powered by the Dimensity 1200.

CPU

Dimensity 1200

Unlike its competitor, the Dimensity 1200 uses a Cortex A-78 cores as an ultra core, instead of the Cortex-X1 core used in the Snapdragon 888 and Exynos 2100, but at the same time, the ultra/prime core in Dimensity 1200 is clocked much higher at 3GHz for a single core, that the same as that on the A14 Bionic.
The CPU Core Architecture is like this.
1x 3GHz Cortex A-78{Ultra/Prime Core}
3x 2.6GHz Cortex-A78{High Performance Cores}
4x 2GHz Cortex-A55{Effeciency Cores}.

It is stated by MediaTek that 1200 will be up to 22% faster while being 25% power efficient when compared to the previous generation.
