Rumor | MediaTek's next flagship processor will not be the Dimensity 2000

MediaTek is projected to launch a 2022 flagship mobile processor called the Dimensity 2000. However, according to an eminent leaker, this major upgrade is not to go by this name after all. This change in branding in question may hint at significant gains over the previous generation.

MediaTek released a flagship mobile SoC in 2021 with specs such as a high-end Cortex-A78 core in an ostensible effort to compete with premium Snapdragon offerings from Qualcomm. Whether the Taiwanese giant did so or not with the Dimensity 1200 is debatable. However, it is rumored to get things right in 2022 with its 4 nanometer (nm) successor.

This chipset is currently believed to be called the Dimensity 2000, as a full-fat replacement for the 1000, possibly as the next processor on from the Snapdragon 888 is thought to become the 898. However, according to Ice Universe, none of the leaks in question have been correct to date.

Instead, the legendary tipster now asserts that the next generation of MediaTek top-end silicon will in fact be called the Dimensity 9000, as that of Qualcomm is to be the 8 Gen1 instead. Accordingly, the greatly inflated series name just might hint at its improvements in terms of performance and power-efficiency.

Either way, Ice Universe now suggests that top-end smartphone CPU rebrands in the immediate future are the order of the day, and also jokes that Samsung has taken too long to get this memo with its own counterparts. Accordingly, it should still launch as the Exynos 2200, a name that does admittedly fail to reflect its potentially landmark adoption of first-gen mobile RDNA graphics.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
