On the evening of February 7, Lu Weibing, president of Xiaomi Group China and general manager of the Redmi brand, said that Redmi phones are quite suitable for playing. Moreover, they are still extremely cost-effective. It is also worth noting that Redmi has a new product on the road. This new product is a Redmi gaming phone. This is the first time Redmi has entered the gaming phone market. The machine is first to come with the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor. As we know, it is MediaTek’s most powerful 5G SoC so far.
The chip uses TSMC’s 6nm process. The CPU uses a 1+3+4 flagship three-plex architecture design, including a Cortex-A78 super core with the main frequency of up to 3.0GHz. It also includes a nine-core GPU and a six-core MediaTek APU 3.0. So, the performance is significantly improved.
In terms of 5G network functions, the Dimensity 1200 integrates a 5G modem. At the same time, the chip supports NSA/SA dual-mode 5G+5G dual card dual standby and dual VoNR voice services, 5G dual-carrier aggregation, 5G UltraSave power-saving technology, etc. It can also meet all 5G scenarios’ connection experience.
5G high-speed rail and elevator modes
The Dimensity 1200 supports specifically 5G high-speed rail mode and 5G elevator mode. Even in special application scenarios such as business trips and elevators, it can ensure stable and high-speed 5G connections. Further, the 5G UltraSave power-saving technology can also reduce the power consumption of the terminal’s 5G communication and bring longer 5G battery life.
This hardware combination will be able to increase CPU performance by about 22%, while GPU performance by about 13%. So, this is also the world’s first 6nm A78 chip. The current score of this chip on the AnTuTu platform exceeds 620,000 points. It has surpassed last year’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chip.
In addition, the battery capacity of the Redmi gaming phone exceeds 4500mAh and supports super-fast charging.
