A MediaTek smartphone chipset bearing the model number mt689x is in the works, claims popular Weibo leaker Digital Chat Station. The SoC is reportedly based on the 6nm fabrication technology.

Unlike the Exynos 1080 which will probably have the Mali G78 GPU, the mt689x is expected to come with the Mali G77.
MediaTek mt689x-powered phones will likely retail for 2,000 Chinese Yuan (~$301.91).
Qualcomm is also said to be working on a 6nm SoC
While the prospect that these midrange 5nm and 6nm chips can make next year’s midtier handsets more powerful than this year’s flagship phones certainly sounds exciting, we hope that the MediaTek mt689x is not limited to China like the Exynos1080 apparently is.
