Taiwanese chipmaker MediaTek released its new low-budget Dimensity 700 chip this month. The chip is designed to bring 5G connectivity to affordable devices for less than $ 200.
Oddly enough, but, apparently, the first brand to prepare a smartphone on this chip will be Huawei. New data breach from well-known Chinese insider Digital Chat Station showed the main technical characteristics of a future Huawei smartphone, among which we have a Dimensity 700 as a processor.
Huawei is preparing to launch a new device based on the SoC Dimensity 700
According to the Leaked, the Chinese company’s next device will be equipped with a 6.5-inch IPS screen, in which the manufacturer will make a hole for the front camera in the upper left corner. As expected for a budget smartphone, the display will support a 60Hz refresh rate, but the FullHD + resolution will please. Unfortunately, Digital Chat Station didn’t tell us what RAM and storage memory options we should expect.

But we know his photographic abilities. On the rear panel, there is a set of 4 lenses: the main sensor of 48 megapixels, 8 megapixels ultra-wide and 2 usual sensors of 2 megapixels (macro and portrait). The front camera has a resolution of 16 megapixels.
The smartphone will be equipped with a 4000 mAh battery that supports fast charging up to 40 watts.
Judging by the tests, Dimensity 700 is a very good solution for devices on a budget. Let’s see what Huawei is doing this time.
MediaTek launches Dimensity 700 mid-range 5G chip
On November 11, MediaTek released the SoC Dimensity 700. It uses an octa-core processor architecture, comprising two large Arm Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.2 GHz. This chip also supports up to 64MP camera and night shooting mode. Phones equipped with this chip will support a screen refresh rate of 90Hz. In addition, in terms of communication, Dimensity 700 supports 5G dual carrier aggregation (2CC 5G-CA) and dual standby dual 5G card (DSDS).
The MediaTek Dimensity 700 uses 7nm process technology. It aims to bring advanced 5G functions and experience to the mass market, positioning the entry-level MediaTek 5G chips. The launch of Dimensity 700 means that the price of 5G smartphones will be even cheaper.
As said, the Dimensity 700 adopts an octa-core CPU architecture. Specifically, it comes with 2 x 2.2 GHz A76 + 6 x 2.0 GHz A55. In addition, it integrates the Mali-G57MC2 950MHz GPU.
Features of Dimensity 700 include:
MediaTek 5G UltraSave energy saving technology: adopts advanced power saving technology to reduce 5G communication power consumption, thereby improving the battery life of the terminal. It includes intelligent network environment detection, OTA content recognition, BWP dynamic bandwidth control and C-DRX power saving management, etc. Thus, these technologies can intelligently manage the 5G connection of the terminal, achieve power saving and energy saving, and provide users with longer 5G battery life.
90Hz screen refresh rate: Support high-definition resolution FHD + display and high screen refresh rate, reduce animation, page scrolling, slide game screen shadow and freeze, and bring better smooth visual experience for end users.
Supports enhancements up to 64 megapixels for cameras and night shots: Supports a 48-megapixel or 64-megapixel main camera sensor with AI depth of field, AI coloring and AI beauty functions. In addition, the hardware-level built-in image accelerator can realize multi-image noise reduction; even at night, users can take high-quality photos with low noise.
Compatible with a variety of voice assistants: supports Alibaba, Amazon, Baidu, Google, Tencent and other global voice assistants.
