A MediaTek is the world’s largest manufacturer of processors for smartphones and other mobile devices. Although Qualcomm enjoys the best reputation and recognition in the market, in terms of business volume, MediaTek has surpassed its North American rival in recent years and is now preparing a new high-end processor, the MediaTek Dimensity 9200.
This chipset or SoC (System on Chip) will be the Taiwan-based manufacturer’s secret weapon to fight the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, Qualcomm’s next high-end chipset.
Incidentally, both processors could see the light of day as early as next November, according to new information.
MediaTek Dimensity 9200 will be the direct rival of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
More specifically, the information was released by the leaker Digital Chat Station via the Chinese social network Weibo. Then, the leaker pointed to the month of November as the date for the next big presentation by MediaTek.
There, according to his testimony, we will get to know the Dimensity 9200, the next generation chipset.
On the other hand, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 should also debut during the next month, although MediaTek should be the first to reveal its product. In addition, this source also mentions several of the core configurations of the processor in question.
Lithography will remain on TSMC’s 4nm process

Thus, we have Cortex-X3 cores from ARM and a new graphics, the Immortalis G715 GPU. More specifically, the Cortex-X3 cores should present a performance improvement of around 25% compared to the current generation Cortex-X2 cores.
On the other hand, the maximum processing frequency (clock speed) and the core architecture, the organization of clusters, were not disclosed by the leaker in question.
On another note, this Dimensity 9200 must use the same 4nm architecture developed by TSMC. Furthermore, we have the presence of Cortex-A710 and Cortex-A510 cores to complete the processor, in addition to the top cores, Cortex-X3.
OPPO and Vivo among the first to use the MediaTek Dimensity 9200

In particular, we are counting on the use of MediaTek’s next high-end processor in smartphones such as the Vivo X90, as well as in the upcoming OPPO Find X range. Then, manufacturers such as Xiaomi, among other brands, will join.
Still, the “fight” of the MediaTek Dimensity 9200 will not be easy. This is because Qualcomm is also expected to present its own high-end processor during the next month, at the end of it, and explore its best public perception.
Finally, we remember the still recent release of MediaTek with the Dimensity 1080 chipset, a mid-range SoC with better performance, energy efficiency, as well as better support for cameras up to 200 MP.
