According to a Weibo source, the upcoming highly-anticipated Xiaomi Civi 3 will be powered by the unannounced MediaTek Dimensity 8200 Ultra chipset.
For the uninitiated Civi is a China-exclusive budget smartphone lineup from Xiaomi and — going by the rumors — the upcoming addition to this lineup will have an all-new chipset from MediaTek. It will be the first phone to launch with the Dimensity 8200 Ultra, which is likely to be an overclocked version of the Dimensity 8200 according to GSMArena.
