Dimensity 9300 is built on TSMC’s third-generation 4nm+ process node and its standout feature is the all-big core CPU design. You get a prime Cotex-X4 core clocked at 3.25GHz alongside 3x Cortex-X4 cores @ 2.85GHz and 4x Cortex-A720 cores @ 2.0GHz all based on the Armv9 architecture. MediaTek claims Dimensity 9300 offers a 40% improvement in peak performance compared to last year’s Dimensity 9200 while using 33% less power.

AI tasks are handled by the APU 790 which supports Generative AI with Stable Defusion generation in less than 1 second and support for LLM with up to 33 billion parameters. Dimesnity 9300 brings support for screens with up to WQHD resolution and 180Hz refresh rates as well as dual-active displays for foldables.

Image capture is handled by the Imagiq 990 ISP with always-on HDR as well as a standalone image stabilization module. The ISP can handle up to 8K video at 30 fps or 4K at 30/60 fps with cinematic mode and real-time bokeh. The R16 5G modem supports 4CC-CA Sub-6GHz and 8CC-CA mmWave bands. The modem should deliver improved power efficiency thanks to the MediaTek UltraSave 3.0+ technology.
