Although MediaTek beat Qualcomm to the punch and announced its flagship 4nm Dimensity 9000 SoC way before its competitor, Snapdragon 8 Gen1-powered devices will hit the market earlier than MediaTek’s offerings.
According to a tipster on Weibo, the first Dimensity 9000 smartphones will launch in February if all goes according to plan. In comparison Snapdragon 8 Gen1-equipped flagships are expected to hit the shelves this year. The Xiaomi 12 is said to offer the chipset in December.
