After taking the wraps off of the latest Dimensity 1200 and 1100 5G chipsets, which succeeded the Dimensity 1000-series, MediaTek today announced to bring its lower-end Dimensity 700 5G chipset to India. With this processor, the chipmaker aims to help manufacturers add more advanced features to their budget smartphones.
Now, if you did not know, Mediatek unveiled the Dimensity 700 5G chipset back in 2020. It is essentially a toned-down version of the Dimensity 720 SoC that was unveiled early last year. It is a part of MediaTek’s Dimensity series of 5G chipsets.
MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G
Coming to the specifications, the Dimensity 700 5G is an octa-core processor based on the 7nm architecture. It features two high-performance Cortex-A76 cores and six power-efficient Cortex-A55 cores. The Cortex-A76 cores are clocked at 2.2GHz and the six additional cores are clocked at 2.0GHz.
Now, the USP of the Dimensity 700 chipset is its 5G capabilities. It brings features like 5G Carrier Aggregation and Dual 5G SIM support to affordable smartphones. Moreover, it features MediaTek’s 5G UltraSave technology that enables the chipset to deliver download speeds up to 2.77Gbps.
Apart from this, this chipset also brings support for 90Hz refresh-rate displays, multiple voice assistants, and low-light photography improvements for budget devices.
