​MediaTek has unveiled the Dimensity 700 5G smartphone chipset, a 7nm SoC that's been designed to bring advanced 5G capabilities to the mass market.

The addition of the Dimensity 700 to MediaTek’s Dimensity family of 5G chips will give device makers a full suite of options for 5G smartphone models - from flagship and premium to mid-range and mass market devices - helping to make 5G more accessible for consumers.

“With our expanded Dimensity portfolio we’re bringing the latest 5G capabilities to every smartphone tier so more people can enjoy 5G experiences,” said Dr. JC Hsu, Corporate VP and GM of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit. “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.”

The Dimensity 700 included a number of advanced connectivity features including 5G Carrier Aggregation (2CC 5G-CA) and 5G dual SIM dual standby (DSDS), giving users access to the fastest speeds and 5G-exclusive Voice over New Radio (VoNR) services from either connection. On the processing power side, the chip integrates two Arm Cortex-A76 big cores in its octa-core CPU and operates at up to 2.2GHz.

Key features of Dimensity 700 include:

  • MediaTek 5G UltraSave 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 technology is able to intelligently manage a device’s 5G connection meaning that you can charge the device less often.
  • A premium 90Hz display means that 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.
  • 64MP cameras & night shot enhancements, plus integrated hardware-based imaging accelerators that enable multi-frame noise reduction so users can capture high quality shots with low noise, even at night.
  • Multiple voice assistant support from global brands such as Alibaba, Amazon, Baidu, Google and Tencent will give device makers more configuration options.
