Their release was made possible thanks to the MediaTek MT6853 platform
The first rumors about the inexpensive single-chip MediaTek MT6853 platform for budget smartphones appeared in the spring, and now there are new details: according to an insider at Weibo, this SoC is ready, and in two versions: MT6853V and MT6853Z. Moreover, the first smartphone based on it is ready.
5G smartphones priced up to $ 140 are on the way
More – no specifics about the technical parameters of the platform or smartphone, but it is reported that such an SoC will reduce the cost of finished models to hundreds of yuan. That is, the maximum limit is $ 140, but there will certainly be cheaper models – at a price of about $ 100-120. Of course, they will not be able to offer much in terms of screen or camera, but 5G support will certainly be there. You might also think that the MT6853 will go into the Dimensity line and be one step or two lower than the Dimensity 800 platform. So it can be called Dimensity 700 or Dimensity 600.
