In the recent past, MediaTek announced Dimensity 7200 which is a flagship-class chipset that offers impressive efficiency and performance in phones. The processor is built with the 2nd Gen TSMC 4nm process which enables the 5G feature. I am expecting some game optimization along with elevated battery efficiency with maximized battery efficiency. It’s an undeniable fact that this chipset is powerful in its own right and has been called the first 4nm chipset for mid-range devices which means you don’t have to shell out too much money to avail fantastic features.

The Dimensity 7200 is a perfect amalgamation of an octa-core CPU equipped with Arm Cortex-A715 and Arm Cortex-A510. The chipset is also committed to elevated graphics while playing games or even watching your favorite content. During its performance test, the MediaTek Dimensity 7200 chipset scored higher than the Snapdragon 7 Gen1. The Dimensity 7200 supports camera sensors up to 200MP with a maximum video capture resolution of 4K30 (3840 x 2160). So you can imagine the clarity it might bring along. Not just that, brace yourself for extensive features such as video HDR, video EIS, dual simultaneous video capture, AI-2A (AI-AF, AI-AWB), and All-pixel AF. The Imagiq 765 technology included in the phone ensures better photography.

The Dimensity 7200 processor is equipped with LPDDR4x and LPDDR5 memory types. The memory frequency in the chipset is Up to 6400Mbps. Also, don’t miss out on the connectivity aspect of the MediaTek chipset which supports cellular technologies such as- 2G-5G Multi-Mode, 5G/4G CA, 5G/4G FDD / TDD, CDMA2000 1x/EVDO Rev. A (SRLTE), EDGE, GSM, and more.

The performance of the Dimensity 7200 the brand has equipped it with MediaTek’s 5th generation APU- APU 650. The functionality of the advanced APU is to smoothen the efficiency of the phone as phone brands can introduce better visuals, features, etc. I know, it’s about time we talk about the display support in the Dimensity 7200. The MediaTek MiraVision 765 supports — HDR10+, CUVA HDR, Dolby HDR which is great for video streaming, and more. The 144Hz refresh rate makes sure that you can scroll and swipe through your favorite mobile platforms at no cost.

Another incredible feature that makes Dimensity 7200 promising is the 3GPP Release-16 standard 5G modem which ensures a promising dual 5G SIM. That’s right, gone are the days for one 5G and one 4G slot where as this latest chipset is equipped with dual 5G slots which would work just fine.

Finally, you would be able to connect your phones and other devices as it comes with Tri-band Wi-Fi 6E with a 2x2 antenna that renders accentuated wireless connectivity in no time. The use of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi setup at once without getting through any latency.

Conclusion

Overall, the Dimensity 7200 is equipped with MediaTek’s HyperEngine 5.0 along with the AI-based Variable Rate Shading (VRS) for power saving. It renders an amazing gaming experience along with end-to-end packed features and specifications. Keep an eye on this space as I would update it with more information in the future.
