Today, MediaTek officially unveiled the flagship SoC Dimensity 9200. At the moment, until the premiere of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 on November 15, the new MediaTek has the status of the most powerful SoC for Android smartphones: it scores over 1.26 million points in the AnTuTu benchmark.
The SoC processor is built according to the previous 1 + 3 + 4 scheme. There is one Arm Cortex-X3 super-core at 3.05 GHz, three Arm Cortex A715 cores at 2.85 GHz, and four energy-efficient Arm Cortex-A510 cores at 1.8 GHz. Compared to the Dimensity 9000, the performance of the new platform in the Geekbench 5 benchmark is 12% higher (in a single-threaded test) and 10% (in a multi-threaded test). At the same time, a decrease in consumption by 25% is declared.
MediaTek said the Dimensity 9200 is the first mobile SoC to be built on TSMC’s second-generation 4nm process. Actually, to a greater extent, this allowed us to reduce consumption. And also place 17 billion transistors on a chip.
The Dimensity 9200 received 8 MB of L3 cache and an Immortalis-G715 MC11 GPU with support for real-time ray tracing. Compared to the GPU used in the SoC predecessor, the performance of the graphics subsystem has increased by 32% (based on the GFXBench Manhattan 3.0 test).
Judging by the presentation and the part that was devoted to the GPU, MediaTek is positioning the Dimensity 9200 as a single-chip system for gaming phones. The platform supports VRS technology, which allows you to increase the frame rate in games by 10% while reducing consumption by 21%.
The platform also received a new APU 690 NPU to accelerate AI tasks and a new Imagiq 890 image processor with support for (for the first time) RGBW sensors (they allow for 30% more image brightness and 20% more detail compared to traditional sensors). The platform supports LPDDR5X 8533MHz RAM and is equipped with an 8-core, eight-channel UFS 4.0 flash memory controller. The MiraVision 890 chip is responsible for displaying the picture on the screen, it supports displays with WQHD + resolution, a frame rate of 144 Hz and HDR.
Of course, MediaTek Dimensity 9200 received a built-in 5G modem. There are also Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth 5.3 adapters.
A fundamentally important point: if earlier the first phones on the top MediaTek SoCs were released months after the presentation, now this practice is a thing of the past: the first device on the Dimensity 9200 will be presented before the end of November. Various sources agree that this will be a model of the Vivo X90 line.
During the premiere of SoC, representatives of Oppo, Xiaomi, Honor, Tecno, Asus and other companies commented. Apparently, they all plan to launch their flagships on the Dimensity 9200. In the case of Xiaomi, this could be a model of the Redmi K60 line, and in the case of Honor, a model of the Magic5 series.
Oppo Find N2 Flip is the first clamshell smartphone without a screen wrinkle, according to published live photos.
On December 15, Oppo will officially unveil its new foldable smartphones, but photos of the Oppo Find N2 Flip clamshell phone have already been published online. And, judging by them, there is no crease on the screen at all.
One of the pictures was published by Ice Universe insider. He accompanied the picture below with the words: “Where is the crease? Where’s she? Where’s she?”. Indeed, visually the fold is not observed. If so, then Oppo has managed to do what Samsung has been unable to do for four years.
However, the lack of a crease isn’t the only feature of the Find N2 Flip. The device will receive the largest external screen for devices in its class – its diagonal will be 3.26 inches. And in this regard, the Find N2 Flip will outperform both the Moto RAZR 2022 and the Galaxy Z Flip4.
In addition, the Oppo Find N2 Flip will prove to be a powerful smartphone, as the Dimensity 9000 SoC is rumored to be attributed to it. Finally (again, according to rumors), the Oppo Find N2 Flip will not repeat its predecessor’s Chinese exclusive status and will be sold outside of China.
What can a $100 Samsung phone do? Samsung Galaxy M04 unveiled
In India, the budget smartphone Samsung Galaxy M04 is officially presented. This is one of the most affordable Samsung phones of today, asking for just $105.
The device received a PLS screen with a diagonal of 6.5 inches and a resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels. The front camera is with a 5-megapixel sensor, the main one is with sensors with a resolution of 13 and 2 megapixels.
The Galaxy M04 is based on a MediaTek Helio P35 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of flash storage. If necessary, the RAM can be expanded up to 4 GB by creating a virtual partition in the flash memory. The phone runs Android 12 and is guaranteed to get Android 14.
The battery capacity was 5000 mAh, but there is no fast charging (maximum – 10 W). There is no fingerprint scanner either. But there are two SIM card slots, a USB-C port and a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack.
5000 mAh, 22.5 W and a 50-megapixel camera like the iPhone 13 Pro for $170. Huawei Enjoy 50z introduced
Huawei today officially introduced the budget smartphone Enjoy 50z. The device is based on a platform with an 8-core processor, but it’s not clear for SoC. Probably, the device is built on some budget Qualcomm platform. The software platform of the novelty is the proprietary HarmonyOS.
Enjoy 50z received a IPS screen with a diagonal of 6.52 inches and a resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels. Frame rate – standard 60 Hz. The front camera has a 5-megapixel sensor, the main camera has sensors with a resolution of 50, 2 (for macro photography) and 2 (for scene depth analysis) megapixels. Externally, the camera repeats the camera of the iPhone 13 Pro.
The battery capacity was 5000 mAh, it supports 22.5 W charging.
The Enjoy 50z is 8.94 mm thick and weighs 188 grams. The device is equipped with a side fingerprint scanner and a standard headphone jack.
