MediaTek has been pumping out chipsets across its various categories. It recently updated its Helio lineup with the G91. Meanwhile, they launched the Dimensity 7025 processor with the Moto G94 5G smartphone just a few days prior. Similarly, MediaTek has unveiled another one of their chips — the Dimensity 6300, and this article will discuss it in greater detail.

MediaTek Dimensity 6300 Overview

The latest MediaTek processor is the successor to the Dimensity 6100+ that launched mid-last year. We will draw a few comparisons between the two chips when discussing further.


Just like its predecessor, the MediaTek Dimensity 6300 comes with eight cores and TSMC‘s 6nm fabrication process. Even the core construct remains the same with two Cortex-A76 and six Cortex-A55 cores. Despite having the exact cores, the latest MediaTek processor clocks in at a higher frequency of 2.4GHz.

At the same time, its lower cores remain at the same 2.0 GHz peak frequency. Similarly, the graphics on the MediaTek Dimensity 6300 also remain unchanged with the Arm Mali-G57 MC2 GPU. However, the company claims to offer 50% faster overall GPU performance along with 11% greater power efficiency and 13% higher FPS.

Hardware Support and the rest

Moving on, MediaTek highlights camera support of up to 108MP with the Dimensity 6300 chipset. This shooter is coupled with enhanced noise reduction as well. Alternatively, a phone powered by this processor can have dual 16MP cameras instead. In addition to that, the company boasts the support of an AMOLED screen with a 2,520 x 1,080 pixels resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a colour depth of 10-bit i.e. up to 1 billion colours.

MediaTek Dimensity 6300 Features

Other than that, the processor packs the 3GPP R16 standard modem that allows for 5G connectivity and peak download speeds of up to 3.3Gbps. It supports memory and storage of up to LPDDR4x-2133 and UFS 2.2 respectively. Moreover, the MediaTek Dimensity 6300 offers six-way navigation with GPS (L1CA+L5), GLONASS (L1OF), Galileo (E1+E5a), BeiDou (B1I+ B2a), QZSS (L1CA+ L5), and NavIC. Lastly, the chip comes with WiFi 5 (a/b/g/n/ac) and Bluetooth v5.2 wireless connectivity.

MediaTek Dimensity 6300 Availability

Considering all the facts about the latest MediaTek offering, it is simply an overclocked variant of the MediaTek Dimensity 6100+ chipset. It might not take long for this processor to make a formal appearance in the market. Given that it is already linked with Realme C65 5G, which has been dubbed the first phone to house the MediaTek Dimensity 6300. Furthermore, we can expect to see many more budget 5G phones feature this processor in the coming year.
