MediaTek Dimensity 9200 debuts — can it take on Snapdragon phone chips?

MediaTek unveiled its latest flagship system-on-chip today (November 8), promising better performance and improved power efficiency for Android phones that adopt the new silicon. Now the only question is whether MediaTek’s new Dimensity 9200 can make a splash outside of the markets where the chip maker currently thrives.

MediaTek’s former standard bearer, the Dimensity 9000, powers a number of phones, including devices from Xiaomi, Oppo, OnePlus and others. But those are phones that typically just come out in China and other parts of Asia. Certainly U.S. phone shoppers, if they’re familiar with MediaTek’s chips at all, know them from midrange and budget phones like Motorola’s recent G series devices.
