Until now, high-end smartphones had chips that were out of reach for normal consumers that drastically changed with time thanks to companies like Realme, iQOO, Xiaomi and others. However, the bigger reason for making high-performance mobile SoCs affordable is all because of the competition Qualcomm is facing recently from the Taiwanese giant MediaTek.
MediaTek has already become the market leader globally and even in major markets like the US in terms of SoCs shipped. Now, their new flagship SoC Dimensity 9000 is truly flagship-level as per the latest leaks we have received but now we have spotted it running on an actual phone, that too a Xiaomi one.
The tipster @UniverseIce shared a Geekbench benchmark of a Xiaomi phone with Dimesity 9000 chipset and that shows its far superior or comparable to a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 found in a flagship Galaxy S22 series smartphones which cost over $1000 in price. So, you can get it how good these new age Dimensity SoC powered mid to premium smartphones will be in terms of performance, thanks to MediaTek.
