MediaTek Dimensity 9200 Plus vs Dimensity 9200

Any links to online stores should be assumed to be affiliates. The company or PR agency provides all or most review samples. They have no control over my content, and I provide my honest opinion.

The MediaTek Dimensity 9200 flagship chipset was announced in November 2022. To the best of my knowledge, there are only two phones that have been launched with this new chipset, the Oppo Find X6 and the Vivo X90.

MediaTek like to maintain an aggressive release cycle, and today they have announced a new upgraded version of this chipset. The new MediaTek Dimensity 9200+ follows the same trend that both Qualcomm and MediaTek have adopted in recent years.

The MediaTek Dimensity 9200+ is exactly the same as the Dimensity 9200, but they have increased the frequencies of all the CPU cores and claim to have boosted the chipset’s Arm Immortalis-G715 GPU by 17%. The 17% number is a bit vague, but I assume they mean general performance.

Looking back at the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ launch last year, the Dimensity 9200+ appears to be a more impressive upgrade. There has been an increase in CPU frequencies across all the cores, with an 8% uplift for the A510 cores, 5.25% for the A715 cores and an impressive 10% for the single X3 core.

Furthermore, the 17% uplift for the GPU is significantly better than the 5% they claimed last year.

MediaTek says that new phones powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9200+ are expected to be released in May 2023.

The main issue MediaTek seems to have at the moment is getting their chipset into phones. They have been producing some superb chipsets recently, the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 was arguably superior to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 last year, but no phones launched with this in Western markets.

Full Press Release

MediaTek has expanded its Dimensity portfolio with its new Dimensity 9200+ chipset for flagship 5G smartphones. This new offering builds on the success of its predecessor with a performance upgrade while maintaining power efficiency for longer battery life and better gaming experiences.

Supporting higher clock speeds than its predecessor, the Dimensity 9200 chipset, the Dimensity 9200+ combines one ultra-core Arm Cortex-X3 operating at up to 3.35GHz, three Arm Cortex-A715 super-cores running up to 3.0GHz, and four Arm Cortex-A510 efficiency cores at 2.0GHz. To give the Dimensity 9200+ an additional boost for gaming and other compute-intensive applications, MediaTek boosted the chipset’s Arm Immortalis-G715 GPU by 17%.

“We continue to raise the bar for flagship performance and power efficiency with the Dimensity 9200+, ensuring device makers have access to the most powerful mobile gaming features available today,” said Dr. Yenchi Lee, Deputy General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit. “With faster raytracing and fluid gameplay at high frame rates, combined with MediaTek’s power saving technologies, you can enjoy incredible visuals, epic effects and extended battery life.”

The Dimensity 9200+ has a 4CC-CA 5G Release-16 modem that fluidly switches between long-reach sub- 6GHz and super-fast mmWave connections. The chipset also supports Wi-Fi 7 2×2 + 2×2 with up to

6.5Gbps data rate, along with Bluetooth 5.3. MediaTek’s Bluetooth and Wi-Fi coexistence technology allows Wi-Fi, Bluetooth low energy (LE) audio, and wireless peripherals to connect at the same time with extremely low latency and without inference.

Key features of the MediaTek Dimensity 9200+ include:
