(Pocket-lint) - In mid November 2021, erstwhile MediaTek announced its flagship processor, Dimensity 9000, the Taiwanese chip-maker didn't uncover the next-gen flagship partners that would utilise its top-tier hardware.
One period connected from that announcement and it's each change: Oppo has revealed that it volition beryllium the archetypal phone-maker to diagnostic Dimensity 9000 successful its next-gen Find X instrumentality successful 2022.
Precisely which instrumentality that volition beryllium is up for debate, however, arsenic Oppo has besides conscionable revealed its ain in-house MariSilicon, which is said to diagnostic successful the forthcoming Find X4 series. That, however, is simply a 6nm process NPU (neural processing unit) designed for representation processing. There's nary chiseled crushed that Oppo's NPU can't handshake with MediaTek's 4nm process CPU successful that instrumentality though.
So wherefore is the usage of Dimensity 9000 of interest? Because of immoderate of the header features it facilitates. With enactment for camera resolutions up to 320-megapixels, could the Oppo Find X4 diagnostic the highest-resolution mobile camera we've seen yet? There's besides enactment for up to 144Hz surface refresh complaint (at WQHD+ resolution), suggesting that the flagship handset could utilise a superfluid sheet too.
It's not lone Oppo that is backing MediaTek's latest flagship, though, with Redmi confirming the K50 volition besides location Dimensity 9000. That's peculiarly absorbing arsenic that handset will, successful essence, beryllium a saltation connected the Xiaomi 12 - the second instrumentality which is already confirmed to beryllium utilizing Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 instead.
In summation there's authoritative enactment from Vivo and Honor, though precisely successful which of those companies' 2022 handsets isn't yet wide (we're guessing X80 Pro+ and View 50). But it shows 1 thing: MediaTek's emergence done the ranks is precise existent and, successful Dimensity 9000, the institution has a precise existent imaginable of showing disconnected what a big-hitter it tin be.
