On September 1, Lu Weibing, President of Xiaomi Group China and General Manager of Redmi Brand, conducted a poll on Weibo asking users to choose between Snapdragon 778 and MediaTek Dimension 1200/Dimension 1100.
The voting results show that MediaTek Dimension 1200 and Dimension 1100 are more popular among fans of Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones today. More than 7,100 people voted for these platforms, while the Snapdragon 778 received less than 4,900 votes.
It is worth noting that the MediaTek Dimension 1200 platform, which is ahead of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G in performance, is used in the Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition smartphone. At the moment, there are no Xiaomi smartphones on the market equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G. Perhaps the company conducted this survey to decide on the release of such a smartphone.
The 1200 size configuration includes eight cores (1 + 3 + 4), the main of which is the Cortex-A78, which operates at a frequency of 3.0 GHz. Additionally, three more Cortex-A78 cores with a frequency of 2.6 Hz and four energy-efficient Cortex-A55 cores operating at a frequency of 2.0 Hz are installed. For comparison, the Size 1000+ used an old Cortex-A77 core with a maximum frequency of 2.6GHz. In single-threaded mode, the new platform should be about 20% faster.
Size 1200 received a 9-core graphics accelerator Mali-G77. The 1200 size supports 168Hz screens and the 5-core image processor supports cameras up to 200MP. In addition, thanks to the upgraded artificial intelligence system, processing of night images has become 20% faster.
