MediaTek has launched its new Dimensity 700 5G smartphone chipset, designed to bring advanced 5G capabilities and experiences to the mass market. The announcement was made during the company’s MediaTek Executive Summit 2020 held online last November 10th.

The addition of the 7nm SoC Dimensity 700 to MediaTek’s Dimensity family of 5G chips gives device manufacturers a full suite of options for 5G smartphone models — from the flagship and premium to the mid-range and mass-market devices — to make 5G more accessible for all types of consumers

“With our expanded Dimensity portfolio we’re bringing the latest 5G capabilities to every smartphone tier so more people can enjoy 5G experiences. The Dimensity 700 has an impressive mix of 5G connectivity features, advanced camera capabilities like night shot enhancements and multiple voice assistant support, all in a super power-efficient design,” according to Dr. JC Hsu, Corporate VP and GM of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit.

packed with advanced connectivity features like 5G Carrier Aggregation (2CC 5G-CA) and 5G dual SIM dual standby (DSDS), the Dimensity 700 gives users access to the fastest speeds and the 5G-exclusive Voice over New Radio (VoNR) services. This new chip integrates two (02) Arm Cortex-A76 big cores in its octa-core CPU and can operate at up to 2.2GHz.

The key features of the Dimensity 700 chip include:

  • Delivers advanced power-saving technologies to improve battery life. It includes UltraSave Network Environment Detection, MediaTek 5G UltraSave OTA Content Awareness, Dynamic BWP, and Connected Mode DRX. The built-in technology intelligently manages a device’s 5G connection so you can do more and charge your device less often.
  • Brands can design smartphones with crisp, high-resolution FullHD+ displays and ultra-fast refresh rates to reduce blur in animations, scrolling, and games for the best user experience.
  • Supports 48MP or 64MP main camera sensors with AI-bokeh, AI-color, and AI-beauty features. Plus, the integrated hardware-based imaging accelerators enable multi-frame noise reduction so users can capture high-quality shots with low noise, even at night.
  • Supports voice assistants from global brands such as Alibaba, Amazon, Baidu, Google, and Tencent to give device makers more configuration options.

The Dimensity 700 continues MediaTek’s legacy of bringing advanced connectivity, multimedia, and imaging features to consumers everywhere. MediaTek’s Dimensity 5G family of chips brings smart and fast together to power 5G devices across all tiers, and with the Dimensity 700 5G devices will now be accessible to even more consumers.
