Although MediaTek beat Qualcomm and announced its flagship 4nm Dimensity 9000 SoC long before its competitor, Snapdragon 8 Gen1-powered devices will hit the market ahead of MediaTek’s offerings.
According to a tipster on Weibo, the first Dimensity 9000 smartphones will be launched in February if everything goes according to plan. In comparison, flagships equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen1 are expected to hit the shelves this year. The Xiaomi 12 would offer the chipset in December.
