MediaTek at its Executive Virtual Summit 2020 on Tuesday showcased the Dimensity 700 as the latest 7nm 5G chipset for “mass-market” smartphones. The new system-on-chip (SoC) comes over three months after the Taiwanese chipmaker brought the Dimensity 720 as a problem solver for mid-range 5G phones. Alongside the new Dimensity SoC, MediaTek launched two new chipsets for Chromebooks — the MT8195 and the MT8192. The company also teased its plans to bring a new high-end, 5G-supporting SoC for smartphones that would be based on 6nm process technology and include ARM Cortex-A78 cores.
MediaTek Dimensity 700 specifications
Architecture-wise, the MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC is quite similar to the Dimensity 720. The chip includes two high-performance ARM Cortex-A76 cores at a maximum clock speed of 2.2GHz, along with six Cortex-A55 cores at 2.0GHz. It is also capable of being paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR4x RAM at a frequency of 2,133MHz and UFS 2.2 two-lane storage, along with up to 1Gbps transfer speeds.
Unlike the Dimensity 720 SoC that comes with an ARM Mali-G57 MC3 GPU, the Dimensity 700 SoC includes a slightly inferior Mali-G57 MC2 GPU. This might be a move to save some cost, according to PR NewsWire.
Nevertheless, the Dimensity 700 SoC supports full-HD+ display with up to 90Hz refresh rate. The chip is also capable of supporting up to 64-megapixel primary camera sensors, along with artificial intelligence (AI) camera enhancements, such as AI bokeh as well as AI colour and beauty features.
