MediaTek – a semiconductor company announced its another 5G enabled chipset Dimensity 720. After Dimensity 800 and Dimensity 1000 series, now MediaTek came up with Dimensity 700 series. Dimensity 720 will be cheaper than others and also 5G capable.
It looks like smartphones with this chipset might be cheaper in terms of 5G enabled. Oppo A72 5G is the first smartphone using the Dimensity 720 chipset and it surely is a mid-range 5G smartphone. This SoC offers the mixture of connectivity, multimedia, artificial intelligence. And imaging innovation together of advanced technologies packed into 7nm chip.
Performance of MediaTek Dimensity 720
Built on the 7nm manufacturing process, the chipset features an octa-core processor of two Cortex-A76 and six Cortex-A55 cores alongside ARM Mali-G57 MC3 as the GPU. The chipset has support for LPDDR4x RAM up to 2133MHz frequency and UFS 2.2 storage class. Demanding tasks are handled by A76 cores where as A55 cores handle less demanding work to preserve battery life. The big cores: Cortex A76 is clocked at 2GHz. Similarly, Cortex A55 is also clocked at 2GHz.
Powered with 2.34Gbps downlink speeds over sub-6GHz standard networks. It comes with the Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.1 for connectivity support. Though, MediaTek hasn’t unveiled the exact 5G modem used in this chipset. But it supports both NSA and SA 5G networks. The chipset is prepared with MediaTek 5G Ultra-save technology for extra-battery saving efficiency.
MediaTek wants to provide a better display quality in mid-range smartphones. So, they claimed that the chipset can support 90Hz refresh rate. And max resolution of 1080 x 2520 pixels. It also supports HDR10+ by upscaling HDR10 content because of MediaTek’s tone mapping technology used.
It can support either 64MP camera as single setup or 20MP+16MP as dual camera setup. Smartphones using this chipset might get a little drawback as in camera section. Smartphone without 5G might have better camera than the ones using this 5G chipset.
MediaTek Dimensity 720’s Availability
The MediaTek Dimensity 720 has started to powering the smartphones. The very first smartphone is Oppo A72 5G. This smartphone is around $250 and it maintained price cause of the chipset. We will see more devices coming by the time.
