New MediaTek Chip Dimensity 720 Will Connect Cheap Smartphones To 5G
MediaTek has announced the Dimensity 720 processor, which will allow low-cost smartphones to connect to high-speed networks of the 5th generation. The new chip was the first representative of the 700th line.
The chip is manufactured using a 7-nanometer process, equipped with two powerful cortex-A76 cores (up to 2 GHz) and six energy-efficient Cortex-A55 cores, as well as Mali-G57 MC3 graphics. the Chipset supports LPDRR4X RAM (up to 12 GB), UFS 2.2, Bluetooth 5.1 standard drives, as well as screens with a scan frequency of up to 90 Hz and a maximum resolution of 2520 x 1080 pixels.
Smartphones with Dimensity 720 can be equipped with a photo module with a main 64-megapixel lens or a 20 + 16 MP configuration. Video recording in 4K quality is provided.
A 5G modem built into the processor allows you to connect to a range below 6 GHz in UltraSave power-saving mode. In the fastest, millimeter range (mmWave), it can not work. It is stated that devices with Dimensity 720 will be able to connect to 5G networks in Europe, North America, and Asia.
The first smartphones with the latest MediaTek chip will be released within the next few months. Given that mid-level models with the Dimension 820 cost about $250, devices with the Dimensity 720 are likely to cost even less.
