OnePlus looks ready to offer a more affordable mainframe phone experience by arming a OnePlus 10 model with MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000 SoC.
OnePlus 10 series may not be all about the eponymous vanilla model and the Pro variant, as new rumors suggest a cheaper third trim may also be in the pipeline relying on a top -end MediaTek chip instead of Qualcomm silicon. This isn’t a first for the company, but it’s an important step. OnePlus’s core figures in the core number series have remained loyal to Qualcomm’s core figures since the company made its highly hyped debut years ago. Even OnePlus mid-rangers in the Nord series have remained chummy at Qualcomm for a long time.
However, this all changed last year when the The OnePlus Nord 2 comes with MediaTek Dimensity 1200 AI SoC that detects its heart. It’s the highest offering in MediaTek’s catalog ever but far from competing with what Qualcomm’s 800-series chips have to offer. But the Taiwanese company quickly filled that gap as well, thanks to the new Dimensity 9000 SoC being pushed as MediaTek’s first solid shot at Qualcomm’s main chip crown. And the benchmark scores that came out online also look good. So it looks like MediaTek is aiming to get into the core part of style, and it’s enlisting the help of OnePlus to accomplish that.
According to the report from MySmartPrice, a OnePlus 10 variant powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chip that could do well for next year. Now, the Chinese brand is set to remove the packaging of the OnePlus 10 series later this month, but so far, the drops have focused only on the OnePlus 10 and its Pro sibling. There isn’t any incredible chatter about the third OnePlus 10-series phone with a MediaTek chip under the hood. But that doesn’t mean the phone in question is vaporware. In fact, OnePlus ’own recent product launch history suggests a third – and even cheaper – member of the main series of phones is likely to hit the shelves.
Getting Back to Roots With Cheap Flagship
Last year, the The OnePlus 9R joined the ranking on the standard OnePlus 9 and its Pro version. The main difference is the chipset that runs the business internally. The OnePlus 9R relies on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC instead of the Snapdragon 888 SoC that powers its other siblings. The Snapdragon 870 is a repackaged Snapdragon 865, which offers flagship-grade performance, despite last year’s standards. The strategy is to cut silicon costs and pass on the benefits to buyers who can’t afford the vanilla OnePlus 9 or its Pro version.
OnePlus could implement the same tactic again in 2022, but this time, the processor of choice is MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000. Weibo post from a relatively reliable leakster in China, though Oppo is preparing to use the same MediaTek chipset for the upcoming Find X5 flagship. However, the more powerful Pro model is likely to retain the goodness of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 offered by Qualcomm. And given the constantly strengthening the relationship between the two brands and close integration in their supply chain, it’s likely that the Dimensity 9000 SoC could deliver the mainstays of the same OnePlus 10 series as well as the Oppo Find X5 family next year.
