According to Digital Chat Station, the new MediaTek flagship SoC allegedly uses slightly less power than the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen1 SoC. The tipster also mentions that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 will have a 4x improvement over the Snapdragon 888, but this won’t be enough to overtake the new MediaTek flagship.
Lastly, the SoC is rumored to be pricey and allegedly has 2x the price of the Dimensity 1200, and might only be powering some manufacturers’ future flagship phones, among these is believed to be the upcoming Redmi K50 Gaming Pro.
