MediaTek’s rumoured successor to its Dimensity 9000 chipset is now officially out. Today (8 November 2022), the company announced its flagship-tier processor for 2023 high-end phones: the MediaTek Dimensity 9200.

According to the chipmaker, the Dimensity 9200 is the first smartphone chipset to use an Arm Cortex X3 core above 3GHz clock speeds (3.05GHz to be precise). As a second-generation 4nm-process octa-core chip, it also features three performance-focused Arm Cortex-A715 @ 2.85GHz, and four efficiency-focused Arm Cortex-A510 @ 1.8GHz.

MediaTek also said that Dimensity 9200 offers up to 30% and 45% power savings in tasks related to AI noise reduction and AI super-resolution, respectively. Contributing to these gains are its power-saving features, along with its sixth-generation AI Processing Unit (APU). 

It’s also allegedly handy with fast user experiences, since it supports LPDDR5X RAM of up to 8,533Mbps and UFS 4.0 storage with multi-circular queue (CPU gets direct access to storage for higher data transmission in multi-thread apps).

Dimensity 9200 also supports various cutting-edge features for the phones that use the chip. The processor is Wi-Fi 7-ready, has an integrated 5G modem (with both sub-6 and mmWave), has Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) Audio support, and a dual antenna system.

Phones with this processor can also support up to 240Hz refresh rate (Full HD+ resolution), up to 144Hz (WHQD resolution), and 60Hz (5K, a.k.a 2.5K x 2 resolution). Additional display perks include optimisation with multi-person segmentation, and multi-layer colour management on a per-scene basis.

MediaTek also did not neglect its imaging chops. The onboard Imagiq 890 image signal processor has support for RGBW sensors, Bayer conversion avoidance, and a host of AI features for photo and video capture.

MediaTek Dimensity 9200 will be available “in the market” by end-2022.
