The final question boils down to which SoC is better. While the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 may have the MediaTek Dimensity 9200 in benchmark tests, it may not always reflect the chipset’s performance. In addition to the above specifications, both SoCs bring AI innovations to their hardware. Qualcomm introduced the Hexagon digital signal processor on the S8G2, which will be essential to increase the power efficiency of the SoC. With INT4 machine learning support, MediaTek will also achieve higher speeds and improve efficiency on the Dimensity 9200.
When it comes to camera support, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is the clear winner here. With 8K HDR support for video recording, this processor is unmatched. The SoC is also equipped to recognize objects in real time, leading to better composition in the results.
Another big factor behind the popularity of these two SoCs will be their availability in flagship devices. So far, manufacturers have favored Snapdragon to power their flagship products, but that may change in the future. We’d even have better battery performance stats as more smartphones start to come out with these SoCs.
