As of now, MediaTek’s current flagship chip is the Dimesnity 1200 which is up to par with the Snapdragon 865 yet still lags behind the 5nm Snapdragon 888. However, the new MediaTek is considered to change the game and give rival companies such as Samsung and Qualcomm a run for their money by the end of the year. However, it is to be noted that the respective rival companies would soon aim to bring about a new chip to even the odds.
