For rich 3D user interfaces and many (casual) Android games it should be good enough.

We don’t have any availability information, but SDMC will be showing the DV9286 at MWC 2023 in Barcelona from February 27th to March 3rd, along with other products such as a Wi-Fi 7 mesh router, a WiFi 6 router and various 4K TV sets.
