Manufactured with a 4nm processor, the MediaTek Dimensity 7200 is an octa-core Armv9 processor designed for mainstream smartphones. with two Cortex-A715 cores, six Cortex-A510 cores, a Mali-G610 MC4 GPU, as well as 5G, WiFi 6E, and Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity.
So far, I had only seen Armv9 SoCs with a mix of Cortex-A510 “LITTLE” cores, Cortex-A710/A715 “big” core, and Cortex-X2 or Cortex-X3 “flagship cores” as found in the Dimensity 9200 processor, but the Dimensity 7200 is one of the first Armv9 processors – one other being the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 – without a Cortex-X core in order to provide a more affordable solution.

- Sub-6GHz (FR1) up to 2CC (200MHz), NR TDD/FDD, 3GPP R16
- Dual 5G SIM (5G SA + 5G SA) & Dual VoNR
- Up to 4.7Gbps downlink
- MediaTek 5G UltraSave 2.0
- Process – TSMC N4 (4nm-class)
It is the first processor from the Dimensity 7000 family, and MediaTek did not talk about performance, probably because it’s meant to be a cost-down version of the Dimensity 9000 series, and showing lower numbers in a press release would not look good from a marketing point-of-view :).
MediaTek says the Dimensity 7200 will be found in 5G mobile devices this quarter (Q1 2023). Additional information may be found on the product page. Hopefully, this marks the start of more affordable Armv9 SoCs and not only for mobile. Time will tell.
