MediaTek officially announced Dimension 720 5G, hardware platform dedicated to mid-range devices. The new SoC completes the Taiwanese manufacturer's offer of processors equipped with 5G connectivity so that it can compete with its historical rival - Qualcomm - in every price range. The newcomer, in fact, will collide directly with the recent Snapdragon 690 announced a few weeks ago by the San Diego giant.

Dimensity 720 is made with the production process at 7nm of TSMC and consists of two ARM Cortex-A76 cores and six Cortex-A55 cores at 2 GHz. The graphics part is handled by the Mali G57 GPU. As anticipated, we are talking about a processor capable of connecting to fifth generation networks thanks to the integrated 5G modem with support for 5G 2CC CA, stand alone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) sub-6GHz networks. MediaTek 5G UltraSave technology helps to improve modem performance by optimizing consumption and thus safeguarding the battery.

As for memories, Dimensity 720 can be combined with RAM LPDDR4X up to 12 GB and UFS 2.2 internal memories. The SoC aims to enhance the whole experience offered by mid-range devices. For this, it supports displays with 90Hz refresh rate, HDR10 + video streaming, single cameras up to 64 Megapixels or dual cameras in the 20 MP + 16 MP configuration.

Great attention is also paid to voice assistants with the Voice Wakeup function which - on the one hand - should reduce energy consumption with systems that are always active and - on the other - should improve listening thanks to a noise suppression system.

For the moment, there is no information on which smartphones will be the first to adopt it nor when they will arrive. In recent days, however, the rumor that OPPO A72 5G with the new Dimensity 720 on board has become more insistent. We'll see.

The satisfying Realme 6 is available discount on Amazon. .
