MediaTek is slowly making its way into the flashing chipset market. The MediaTek Dimensity 2000 chipset, which will be released later this year, is expected to be the most powerful MediaTek chipset yet. However, while the launch may not be far off, leaks and rumours about the upcoming MediaTek Dimensity 2000 chipset have already surfaced on the internet. The MediaTek Dimensity 2000 might compete with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 or 888+ chipset on paper.

However, MediaTek is anticipated to release a ‘proper’ flagship chipset, perhaps with an X2 core, giving the 888’s own successor (now rumoured to be the 898) a fight for its money. This “Dimensity 2000” was formerly reported to feature an advanced 5nm design; however, the most recent rumour suggests it may instead move straight to 4nm.
It is expected to feature on a high-end Cortex-A series core for high performance and seamless multitasking. The upcoming Dimensity 2000 processor series is based on TSMC’s latest 4nm process node. The new ARM V9 architecture, as well as the new Cortex X2 core, will be included. The new SoC’s performance will be comparable to Qualcomm’s upcoming flagship Snapdragon 898/895 mobile processor, which will also be released around the same time.
Furthermore, the company’s flagship SoC will use the latest ARM V9 architecture as well as the new Cortex-X2 core for heavy number crunching. One would think that the Dimensity 2000’s performance would be similar to Qualcomm’s top-tier SoC for 2022.
In terms of efficiency, it will be built using TSMC’s 4nm manufacturing process, which is said to be more energy-efficient without sacrificing performance. Apart from that, we don’t have much information on the chipset to offer just yet. However, we should either wait for the formal launch event or expect additional leaks.
Upcoming Phones with MediaTek Dimensity 2000 SoC (Expected)
- OnePlus Nord 3
- Poco F4 GT
- Realme X8 Max 5G
- Oppo Reno 7 Pro
- Redmi K50 Gaming
Reportedly, a Dimensity 2000 powered phone will launch sometime in early 2022. It is expected that the price of this handset will be around 3000 yuan (roughly $460). It suggests that the chipset is competing with the Snapdragon 870. However, in terms of performance, the Dimensity 2000 will offer much more.
