The new Dimensity 1300 is a successor to the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset. The Dimensity 1200 SoC was a flagship chipset released by MediaTek in 2021. This chipset marked the entry of the Taiwanese company into the flagship mobile processor space, which was previously enjoyed by Qualcomm.
The Realme X7 Max and the OnePlus Nord 2 were some of the upper mid-range smartphones that came with the MediaTek 1200 SoC and performed exceedingly well in the smartphone market. However, after the advent of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 778G processor, which provided similar performance and better stability, the Dimensity 1200 lost its sheen in the market. MediaTek attempts to regain the lost ground with its new Dimensity 1300 mobile processor.
