As is known, Dimensity 9000 is the world’s first smartphone chipset made with 4nm fabrication. In addition, this chipset uses the latest v9 architecture from Arm which promises increased security and performance.
Not only that, the Dimensity 9000 is the first CPU to use Arm’s new core design. It has 1x Cortex X2 with a speed of 3GHz, 3x Cortex A710 with a speed of 2.85GHz and 4x Cortex A510 with a speed of 1.8GHz.
