Gaming phones are on the way on the market although the number of models is still limited, but more and more brands are deciding to enter this sector. Xiaomi, for example, already has Black Shark phones that aren’t exactly part of its family but that share its ecosystem, and now they’re preparing for a new launch.
In this case, the launch will take place, already confirmed, via the Redmi brand of the Chinese manufacturer. Redmi will benefit from the release of the latest MediaTek processors, the Dimensity 1200, to launch a “ gaming ” phone with them on board and said phone will arrive in the same year 2021.
3GHz, 5G and up to 168Hz screen
The news got to Lu Weibing, CEO of Redmi, via Weibo. In the most important social network in your country, Weibing confirms that Redmi works on a “ gaming ” phone to incorporate in its catalog, the one which will become the first in a series, and which will arrive throughout this 2021, without specifying a more precise date.
Dimensity 1200 processor, 5G and an undeniable price
Weibing says, yes, that the future Redmi “ game ” will carry the new MediaTek 1200, one of the main alternatives to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 with the latest Samsung Exynos 2100. Although Weibing already only refers to its phone equipped with 5G, the presence of this processor already makes it possible to anticipate certain characteristics
Right off the bat, we stumble upon an eight-core processor that shares part of the Snapdragon 888’s cluster system, but does not customize the lithographs. We have in front of a Cortex A78 core running at 3 GHz, then three Cortex A78 cores running at 2.6 GHz to close with four Cortex A55 cores at 2 GHz. Without a doubt, a powerful processor.
In addition, we have the Mali G77 GPU with 9 rendering cores supporting all the graphics aspect and a very important feature for the gaming sector: the Dimensity 1200 Allows you to mount FullHD + displays with a refresh rate of up to 168Hz. It is not known which panel the future Redmi phone will opt for, but its ceiling is quite high in this regard.
We expect this Redmi that the most gamers begin to filter over the weeks because the first step, officiality, has already been produced in the mouth of the CEO of the brand. Weibing further states that will be traded at a price that cannot be refused. We’ll see if he keeps his promise.
