MediaTek has launched a new 5G chipset in China yesterday, which is named Dimensity 1000 Plus. It is the slightly upgraded version of the Dimensity 1000 Soc which was launched earlier this year. During the launch event, MediaTek announced that iQOO will be the first brand to use the latest chipset. Just a day after the announcement, we received a tip from the renowned tipster from China, Digital Chat Station that it will be the iQOO Z1 that sports the Dimensity 1000 Plus SoC.
The iQOO Z1 as it sports the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 Plus chipset, features 5G connectivity, sports 144Hz display. The UltraSave technology used by the company makes the chip more power-efficient during 5G usage. The company has also announced AI-powered picture quality adjustments, dual 5G SIM support, and SDR to HDR conversion features offered by the new chip.
We do not know anything more about the iQOO Z1 apart from the chipset used by it. To recall, iQOO has recently launched the iQOO Neo 3 in China with Snapdragon 865 processor, UFS 3.1 storage, 144Hz display as the main USP. The device comes with 4500mAh battery, sports 44W fast charging and Super Flash Charge 2.0. The iQOO Z1 with MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ SoC, 144Hz refresh rate display is expected to be the affordable smartphone with premium specifications.
