MediaTek has just announced its new Dimensity 6300 chipset for midrange Android phones.

As the successor to the Dimensity 6100+, the new MediaTek Dimensity 6300 is stated to deliver up to 10% faster gaming performance thanks to the higher CPU speeds of 2.4GHz. As for graphics, Mediatek claims the Dimensity 6300 offers up to 50% faster GPU performance when compared to competitor alternative platforms.

Built on a 6nm process, the Dimensity 6300 comes with two ARM Cortex-A76 cores locked up to 2.4GHz, 6 ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked up to 2.0GHz, and an ARM Mali-G57 MC2 GPU. 

MediaTek says the Dimensity 6300 has native support for 108MP camera sensors, and can support displays with a maximum display resolution of up to 2520 x 1080 pixels, and refresh rates of up to 120Hz.

Other specs include a 3GPP Release-16 standard 5G modem with peak download speeds of up to 3.3Gbps, Wi-Fi 5 connectivity, Bluetooth 5.2, UFS 2.2 storage, and LPDDR4x RAM support. 

On paper, the new Dimensity 6300 looks like a competent chipset. The only concern we have at this point is that it only supports Wi-Fi 5. Wi-Fi 6 is the wireless standard at most places now, and the world is slowly but surely transitioning to Wi-Fi 7.

The MediaTek Dimensity 6300 will start powering devices from this quarter. The Realme C65 5G is said to be the first phone to launch with this chipset and it will be unveiled later this month.
