MediaTek releases Dimensity 7200

A rival for Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 7 Gen 1

MediaTek has unveiled the Dimensity 7200, a new mid-range phone chipset which is believed to be targeted against Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 7 Gen 1.

The 7200 is the first in MediaTek's new 7000-series and is similar to the more pricey Dimensity 9200 and 8200 chips.

It uses the same 2nd-generation TSMC 4nm process as the top-tier Dimensity 9200. However, it lacks a super-fast prime core and has replaced them with two Cortex-A715 performance cores clocked at 2.8GHz, and six slower Cortex-A510 efficiency cores.

MediaTek claims it delivers 10 per cent superior single-core performance to the rival Snapdragon 7 Gen 1.

The chip includes a modem for 5G support, though it’s limited to Sub-6GHz bandwidths – the typical range outside the US. The latest Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 standards are included at least.

Cameras up to 200Mp will be supported – as seen recently on the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra – along with 14-bit 4K HDR video capture.

MediaTek says hardware is in production now, with the first handsets expected by the end of March.
