Mediatek has really reshaped competition in the Android chip market with their recent releases. Their most recent flagship, the Dimensity 9000 was critically acclaimed on release, and even managed to trade blows with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Just now, well known Weibo tipster, DCS, even shared Antutu scores of the upcoming Dimensity 9200.
In the leaked screenshot, the phone gets a score of 1266102. With this score, the upcoming Dimensity 9200 leads every other chip in Antutu benchmarks, including the current champion, the Dimensity 9000+ seen on the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate.
If you look at the broken down scores, the CPU only registers a marginal improvement over the previously released Dimensity 9000+. The big jump in overall scores comes from the significantly improved GPU, powered by the new Arm Immortalis-G715.
Let’s talk about the chip itself. While Mediatek hasn’t revealed anything officially, the Dimensity 9200 is rumored to be unveiled in an upcoming event in November, like with the Dimensity 9000 last year.
According to noted leakster Ice Universe, the Dimensity 9200 could feature the new Arm Cortex-X3 performance cores. Even the GPU will get an upgrade, with the Dimensity 9200 featuring the new Arm Immortalis-G715. The SoC will most likely be manufactured on TSMC’s 4nm node.
The most recent Dimensity chips were also very efficient, and that seems to carry over to the upcoming Dimensity 9200. As the screenshot shows, the CPU temps rises from 27°C (room temperature) to a very comfortable 36-37°C, and also stays within those ranges during the strenuous test.
With these scores, the Dimensity 9200 will likely be the most powerful Android chip when it releases next month. That is until the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 officially releases. Its not clear yet, which will be the first phone to sport the upcoming Mediatek 9200, but recent rumors suggest Vivo could take the lead with the Vivo X90.
