Taiwanese chipset maker MediaTek has announced Kompanio 1300T, its latest chipset built for tablets and ARM-powered laptops. The new chipset replaces last year’s Kompanio 1200 but shares similar hardware with Dimensity 1200 which was announced in January.
The Kompanio 1300T has a nine-core Mali-G77 MC9 GPU as opposed to the G57 MC5 the Dimensity 1200 has. It is built on a 6nm process and has an octa-core CPU with Cortex-A78 cores and A55 cores. It supports WiFi 6, Bluetooth v5.2 and has an integrated 5G modem with the sub-6 GHz 5G flavour, it also supports dual-SIM operation.
The 1300T supports 1080p displays, but it can go up to 1440p resolution with 120Hz refresh rate (with dynamic refresh rate) and HDR10+ video playback for a single display. It has an APU that enables features like AI-PQ (“AI Picture Quality”) and voice commands. For cameras, it supports up to 108MP sensors and it can record 4K video at up to 60fps. There is also a staggered HDR option at 4K resolution.
The first set of tablets powered by the chipset are expected to be released in the coming weeks. There are rumours the Honor V7 Pro tablet which could be unveiled in mid-August might be powered by it.
