MediaTek’s success in the upper mid-range and budget flagship segments has been largely due to the Dimensity lineup. However, at the top level, the Taiwanese chipmaker has yet to challenge Qualcomm’s undisputed position. MediaTek has previously attempted to break into the flagship market with devices such as the Dimensity 1200, but its efforts have fallen short of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8-series. The company is introducing a new chipset called the Dimensity 9000 in a renewed attempt to conquer the flagship space.

The MediaTek Dimensity 9000 is the world’s first 4nm-class smartphone chip and comes with a lot of features, including Arm’s most powerful Cortex-X2 core, an 18-bit image signal processor, Bluetooth 5.3 support, and more.

The MediaTek Dimensity 9000 has an octa-core CPU with 1x Arm Cortex-X2 core clocked at 3GHz, 3x Arm Cortex-A710 cores clocked at 2.85GHz, and 4x Arm Cortex-A510 cores for efficiency. The CPU and GPU are based on the new ArmV9 architecture, which is a direct successor to the Armv8 architecture and promises improved security and performance. The Dimensity 9000 is also the first chipset to include Arm’s most powerful CPU core, the Cortex-X2.

The Arm Mali-G710 GPU is in charge of graphics and gaming, and it promises a 20% performance boost over its predecessor. A FullHD+ display with a 180Hz refresh rate can be driven by the GPU. In addition, MediaTek is releasing a raytracing SDK that game developers can use to add new graphics techniques to their Android games.

The MediaTek 9000 uses its 18-bit HDR ISP for imaging, which can record 4K HDR video from three cameras at the same time. It also has a 320MP sensor and a video night mode called “Super Night Video Recording.”

Meanwhile, the Dimensity 9000’s 5th generation AI processing unit (APU) is 4 times more power-efficient than its predecessor and will power a variety of AI experiences in camera, gaming, and multimedia apps, among others.

The Dimensity 9000 includes an integrated 5G modem with downlink speeds of up to 7Gbps, 3CC Carriers Aggregation (300MHz), and uplink speeds of up to 300 percent faster.

The chipset supports Bluetooth 5.3, Wi-Fi 6E 22, Wireless Stereo Audio, and Beidou III-B1 C GNSS in terms of connectivity.

In late Q1 2022, the first smartphones with the Dimensity 9000 chipset will be available.

Four new Nokia phones are in tow, sports new design

New camera bumps in tow!

Published

on

Evleaks, a trusted leaker, has revealed what appear to be official renders of four new Nokia devices that have yet to be announced. The phones are identified by model numbers N151DL, N150DL, N1530DL, and N152DL, which do not correspond to the standard TA-numbering method.

The smartphones, however, do not appear to be the normal Nokia devices that we are used to seeing. Not the N150DL and N152DL, at least. If you ask me, these models appear to have been designed on the request of some carrier, most likely the US one, given Evleaks obtained and disseminated the promotional materials.

Let’s look at the N150DL and N1530DL first. They have their camera bump at the upper left, a rounded rectangle that is visually split into two parts, indicating that they are definitely related devices. These are most likely mid-range gadgets because of the notch. The fingerprint reader on the side suggests an LCD, and there’s a 3.5 mm headphone jack on top. We couldn’t make out the label on the triple camera, unfortunately.

The Nokia N151DL sports a circular camera bump, which is the current design for most of HMD Global’s handsets. Because there is only one camera, no fingerprint reader, and a somewhat chunky bottom bezel, this one is most likely entry-level (opposite another notch).

Finally, the N152DL is very certainly a C-series phone, which means it runs Android Go Edition. Its design is eerily similar to that of the C1 or C01 Plus, which are a few years behind the times.

There’s no news on when these four Nokia phones will be released, but we may expect more specific leaks before then.
