The new MediaTek Dimensity 7200 chip is now official. Kicking off the Dimensity 7000 lineup, MediaTek says this sub-flagship mobile processor will “amplify gaming and photography smartphone experiences”. So let’s check out what the MediaTek Dimensity 7200 has to offer including its full specifications, availability, and more.
MediaTek Dimensity 7200 Overview:
MediaTek Dimensity 7200 is based on TSMC’s second-generation 4nm process, called “N4P”. That’s the same one used in the company’s flagship Dimensity 9200 chip which you can find in phones like Vivo X90 and X90 Pro.
Anyway, the Dimensity 7200’s octa-core CPU consists entirely of second-gen Armv9 CPUs. This includes two Cortex-A715 cores clocked at up to 2.8 GHz and six Cortex-A510 cores at up to 2.0 GHz. MediaTek has integrated its fifth-gen APU (AI Processing Unit) called “APU 650” in the Dimensity 7200, which handles the efficiency of AI tasks and AI fusion. For graphics, there is Arm Mali-G610 MC4 GPU which supports fast response times and up to 144Hz FHD+ displays.
Made for gamers
According to CH Chen (Deputy General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit), “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.”

Dimensity 7200 also brings MediaTek’s HyperEngine 5.0 engine for gamers, which delivers AI-based Variable Rate Shading (VRS) to save power. It also enables other features like smart CPU and GPU optimization to deliver a smooth gaming experience.
Moving on, this chip supports up to 200MP main camera utilizing MediaTek’s Imagiq 765 ISP and an additional 14-bit HDR-ISP. This chipset can capture 4K HDR videos. It also allows users to shoot 1080p videos from two cameras at the same time while maintaining all-pixel autofocus mode. Dimensity 7200 also includes motion-compensated noise reduction for clear night shots. Furthermore, its APU supports advanced AI-Camera enhancements like real-time portrait beautification.
In terms of connectivity, MediaTek Dimensity 7200 features a 3GPP Release-16 standard sub-6GHz 5G modem with up to 4.7 Gbps downlink speed. It also supports triband WiFi 6E connectivity as well as Bluetooth 5.3. And for users on a 5G network, there’s the built-in 5G UltraSave 2.0 technology to ensure best-in-class cellular power efficiency. Furthermore, this chipset comes with 2CC Carrier Aggregation and Dual 5G SIM with dual VoNR (Voice over New Radio) too.
Moving on, Dimensity 7200 supports MiraVision display with all the latest HDR standards including HDR10+, CUVA HDR, and Dolby HDR. It can also enhance video playback from SDR to HDR using AI optimizations. Additionally, it brings Bluetooth LE Audio and Dual-Link True Wireless Stereo Audio for wireless earbuds.
