MediaTek confirmed that the first phones with the new chipset will launch in Q1 2021.

MediaTek started with counterfeit chips, is now competing with Qualcomm in the 5G smartphone chip market.

Architecture-wise, the MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC is quite similar to the Dimensity 720. Specifically it comes with 2 x 2.2GHz A76 + 6 x 2.0GHz A55. This might be a move to save some cost. The phones with this chip will support 90Hz screen refresh rate. Along with this, the chipset can support both 48MP and 64MP primary sensors in addition to AI camera features. Furthermore, the Dimensity 700 packs dual SIM 5G support as well, allowing you to use two 5G networks on one phone. The Dimensity 700 5G chipset also supports India's NavIC GPS, Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.1, and more.

On November 11, MediaTek released the Dimensity 700 SoC. Moreover, the chipset is expected to power phones under $250 (roughly Rs. 18,000) price segment. The company isn't stopping here either, as it's just announced the Dimensity 700 SoC. The Dimensity 700 5G has been designed for all kinds of devices, ranging from flagships to budget devices, with the common denominator being support for 5G.

The chipsets also have a built-in high dynamic range image signal processor and hardware depth engine. The chipsets also support a single 32-megapixel camera or dual 16-megapixel cameras. The MT8192 is a 7nm chipset that features four Cortex A76 cores and four A55 cores, an Arm Mali-G57 GPU with five cores, and can facilitate LPDDR4X RAM modules and UFS 2.1 storage. MediaTek's APU 2.0 provides the MT8192 with up to 2.4 TOPs performance.

Google Pay today holds nearly 40% market share in the UPI transactions, coming second to PhonePe only recently. Furthermore, app publishers have many other distribution options for the Android platform, the company noted.

90Hz screen refresh rate: supports high-definition resolution FHD+ display and high screen refresh rate, reduces animation, page scrolling, drag shadow and freeze of game screen, and brings smooth visual experience to end users.

MediaTek's MT8195, built on TSMC's 6nm process, integrates an octa-core CPU with four Arm Cortex-A78 cores for compute intensive applications and four power-efficient Arm Cortex-A55 cores to simultaneously handle background tasks and maximize battery life, said the vendor. The chipset is paired with MediaTek's APU 3.0 that is capable of delivering up to 4 TOPS performance.

The firm is also touting 5G downlink speeds of up to 2.77Gbps and 2CC carrier aggregation via the integrated 5G modem as well as its UltraSave technology suite for improved efficiency. There are also features including Dolby Vision, 7.1 surround sound audio, and a Codec AV1 video accelerator.

Chromebooks powered by the MT8192 will land in Q2 2021, MediaTek notes.
