Insiders said the Dimensity 9000 will cost almost twice as much as last year’s Dimensity 1200. Perhaps the reason for this is the use of the advanced 4nm process technology from TSMC 4.
This can have a direct impact on the price for which the end customer gets a phone based on the new top processor. On the other hand, the Dimensity 9000 should still be cheaper than the Snapdragon 8 Gen1.
Be that as it may, the flagship smartphones of 2022 will be expensive. We can only hope for interesting chips in return for such a price.
