Chipmaker MediaTek has launched its latest 5G chipset, the Dimensity 9200, which aims to power the next era of flagship smartphones.
Boasting extreme performance and intelligent power efficiency, the new System on Chip (SoC) promises to bring immersive all-day gaming experiences, ultra-sharp image capturing, and support for both mmWave 5G and sub-6GHz connectivity to consumers around the globe.
The Dimensity 9200 is the first smartphone chip to integrate an ultra-core Arm Cortex X3 with operating speeds over 3GHz, and the first to feature the Arm Immortalis GPU with a hardware-based ray tracing engine. The chipset also packs MediaTek’s HyperEngine 6.0 Gaming Technology for fast, fluid action so gamers can immerse themselves in every scene, in epic detail. With support for extreme performance gaming displays, eye-catching resolution, and extended foldable designs, the chipset’s MediaTek MiraVision 890 display technology brings content to life.

Leading in power efficiency with its eXtreme Power Saving Technology for AI-super resolution and AI-noise reduction tasks, the Dimensity 9200 provides up to 35% power savings for 4K HDR video capture with AI-NR, as well as AI-SR power savings in all visual applications. The chipset’s sixth-generation AI Processing Unit (APU 6.0) enhancements include up to 18% faster peak clock speeds and 30% power efficiency compared to the fifth-generation APU.
The Dimensity 9200 is the first Wi-Fi 7-ready smartphone platform, supporting up to 6.5 Gbps data rates. The chipset integrates an advanced, built-in 5G modem with AI for faster network searching, 5G connection recovery out of dead zones, and other intelligent connectivity enhancements. It also delivers seamless 5G experiences by fluidly switching between long-reach sub-6GHz and super-fast mmWave connections simultaneously. Users can connect everywhere thanks to MediaTek’s Bluetooth and Wi-Fi coexistence technology, allowing Wi-Fi, low energy (LE) audio, and wireless peripherals like gamepads to connect at the same time without interference. Additionally, the chipset’s dual antenna system intelligently switches between extreme performance and ultra-low power antennas based on real-time user needs.
The chipset’s Imagiq 890 image signal processor supports captivating capture, whether users are in low light, bright light, or anywhere in between. Sporting the first native support for RGBW sensors, smartphones powered by the Dimensity 9200 can avoid Bayer conversion, providing up to 34% more power savings than competing solutions. Additionally, users can create better cinematic videos and enjoy superior AI motion unblur technology thanks to MediaTek’s fast, accurate AI-NR photo capture technology. For video captures, the Video Stream Engine fuses the chipset’s APU and ISP; this allows device makers to add unique AI-video enhancements that are notably faster and more power efficient.
