When pitted against Qualcomm and Samsung, MediaTek has long been the underdog. However, its new Dimensity series of 5G chips has changed the game. The company’s CEO recently claimed that they are now the world’s largest smartphone SoC manufacturer, demonstrating the company’s incredible growth. Now, the company’s new Dimensity 2000 has rocked the stage.
However, because of OEMs’ preference for Qualcomm’s solutions, MediaTek’s share of the flagship smartphone market has been near to zero. This is most likely owing to the former’s focus on the entry-level to mid-level market. However, with such success, the Taiwanese chipmaker’s goals may be shifting.

Digital Chat Station released the AnTuTu benchmark score of MediaTek’s next flagship chip today. Surprisingly, the scores are astonishingly good. In fact, it’s established a new record. It’s the first time a mobile chip has reached seven figures, with a score of 1,002,220. In comparison, the current champion Snapdragon 888 Plus has exceeded the 900,000 mark.
The tests were done on a Vivo phone that is not launched yet, according to the leaker. It suggests that the device could be the first to use the MediaTek Dimensity 2000.
However, since the AnTuTu screenshot states that the score “could not be verified” and that it is “abnormal,”; people have questioned the results. That said, according to Digital Chat Station, these warnings messages are standard for benchmarks done on test units.
It will be interesting to see if the Mediatek Dimensity 2000 stays at the top when Snapdragon 898 and Exynos 2200 are released. Even if it is beaten, MediaTek will undoubtedly pierce the flagship smartphone market in the near future if this leak isn’t a ruse.
