In a move toward making 5G mainstream and addressing growing consumer demand for 5G devices, MediaTek has unveiled its new Dimensity 700 5G smartphone chipset. The Taiwanese fabless semiconductor company made the announcement at the MediaTek Virtual Executive Summit 2020.

“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,” said JC Hsu, Corporate VP and GM of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit, in a press statement.

Bringing 5G to everyone

Making 5G mainstream means making it accessible to consumers everywhere on a wide variety of devices. With the Dimensity 700 7nm SoC (system on a chip), MediaTek is bringing advanced 5G capabilities and experiences to the mass market.

The addition of the Dimensity 700 to MediaTek’s Dimensity family of 5G chips gives device makers a full suite of options for 5G smartphone models — from flagship and premium to mid-range and mass market devices.

The Dimensity 700 packs 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 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.

  • Premium 90Hz Display. 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.
  • Up to 64MP Cameras and Night Shot Enhancements. 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.
  • Multiple Voice Assistant Support. Supports voice assistants from global brands such as Alibaba, Amazon, Baidu, Google, and Tencent to give device makers more configuration options.
