MediaTek Kompanio 1300T processor is made for 5G tablets

MediaTek has launched several 5G mobile SoCs for smartphones in recent years, but with Kompanio 1300T Cortex-A78/A55 processor the company is targetting 5G tablets specifically.

As we’ll see below MediaTek Kompanio 1300T specifications are quite similar to the ones for Dimensity 1100 processor, except for support for slightly higher resolution displays up to 2560×1600 @ 120 Hz or 2560×1440 @ 144Hz, instead of 2520 x 1080 @ 144Hz.

While the press release only mentions tablets as the target devices for Kompanio 1300T SoC, the product page extends that to 2-in-1’s and laptops. I’d assume all Android-based, and Windows 11 is not in the card just yet.

Tablets powered by the Kompanio 1300T processor are expected to launch in Q3 2021.

2560×1440/1600, no?

I find it odd that it can capture 4K video, but it has no means to display it, not even to an external display.

Yes, just like almost all current phone SOCs.

Except this is meant for laptops, not phones.
Even my six year old laptop can output 4K30p over HDMI, this chip can not.

As 4k is not my primary focus, it looks very nice for a tab/netbook. Wondering if it will ever get decent Linux support

Driving a 1440p external monitor would be an improvement over their current offering.

e.g. Chromebook Duet limited to [email protected] over USB-C.

No word about USB. I would assume USB-C but 2.0 .
