Dimensity 1300 is manufactured in TSMC’s 6nm process. The octa-core CPU contains 4 Cortex-A78 cores, of which 1 Cortex-A78 super-core runs at a base frequency of up to 3.0 GHz. In addition, there are 4 Cortex A55 cores with a base frequency of 2.0GHz. Finally, this SoC includes the ARM Mali-G77 MC9 graphics accelerator.
As for the Dimensity 8000, it is supposed to be a downclocked version of the Dimensity 8100. This 5nm platform consists of four large Cortex A78 cores and four small Cortex A55 cores clocked at 2.85GHz. The Redmi Note 12 will also have a sleek design and a good battery life.
