With its 7nm systems-on-chip (SoC) design, 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 (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.

MediaTek emphasized that 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.

The 5G UltraSave feature would deliver advanced power-saving technologies to improve battery life, according to MediaTek. 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,” it said.

On its Premium 90Hz Display, brands could 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.

MediaTek said its Cameras & Night Shot Enhancements, which is up to 64MP, could support 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,” it added.

The Multiple Voice Assistant Support could help voice assistants from global brands such as Alibaba, Amazon, Baidu, Google, and Tencent to give device makers more configuration options.
