A photograph exhibiting a confidential MediaTek press launch doc, addressed to Honor undoubtedly lends credibility to the leak as nicely. We nonetheless do not get the total specs sheet for the Dimensity 1300T, however it seems to comply with the overall pattern with the remainder of the lineup and is a comparable, but beefed-up spinoff of the present Dimensity 1200 flagship.
