MediaTek has added a new member to its Dimensity line of 5G smartphone processors. Dubbed Dimensity 7200, the latest chipset is a mid-range 4nm solution built on TSMC’s N4P process, the same used in the high-end Dimensity 9200. It will debut within the next few weeks.

Dimensity 7200 specifications

The Dimensity 7200 has an octa-core CPU featuring two ARM Cortex-A715 performance cores clocked at 2.8GHz. MediaTek is including six Cortex-A510 efficiency cores here. ARM’s Mali G610 MC4 GPU handles the graphics duties. The chipset supports Full HD+ displays at up to 144Hz refresh rate. MediaTek MiraVision Display ensures HDR10+, CUVA HDR, and Dolby HDR capabilities. The Taiwanese firm has also included MediaTek HyperEngine 5.0 technology for optimized gaming. It delivers power-efficient AI-based Variable Rate Shading (VRS).

Speaking of AI, the Dimensity 7200 ships with a built-in AI Processing Unit (APU). MediaTek’s Imagiq 765 and a 14-bit HDR-ISP means the chipset can handle the highest resolution smartphone cameras out there (200MP). It also supports 4K HDR video recording, including simultaneous capture from two cameras at Full HD resolution (1080P). All-pixel autofocus technology ensures everything is in focus. The built-in APU enables real-time portrait beautification, while the processor also supports motion-compensated noise reduction and night photography.

The Dimensity 7200 features a 3GPP Release-16 standard integrated 5G modem for power-efficient Sub-6GHz 5G cellular connectivity. It brings 2CC Carrier Aggregation and Dual 5G SIM with dual VoNR. MediaTek claims a theoretical peak download speed of 4.7Gbps. Memory frequency can go up to 6400Mbps, but the chipset misses out on the latest UFS 4.0 storage solution. It only supports the previous-gen UFS 3.1 storage. Other highlights include Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3, Bluetooth LE, and Dual-Link True Wireless Stereo Audio.


This chipset opens up a new series of Dimensity processors in MediaTek’s portfolio. It appears the company will focus this lineup on premium mid-range devices with greater emphasis on gaming and photography, “The MediaTek Dimensity 7000 series will be vital for mobile gamers and photography enthusiasts who are looking for an affordable way to squeeze the most battery life out of their phones without skimping on performance,” said CH Chen, the Taiwanese firm’s Deputy General Manager of Wireless Communications Business Unit.

The new MediaTek processor will debut soon

The Dimensity 7200 will start shipping inside phones within the next few weeks. MediaTek hasn’t named any partner company or device but said that it will “power 5G devices launching in the global market in Q1 2023”. The first quarter ends in March, which means that the new chipset will debut soon. We may see the first batch of Dimensity 7200-powered phones go official around Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2023, which kicks off on Monday, February 27. We will keep you posted with all the latest and greatest happenings at the upcoming tech event in Barcelona.
