MediaTek just announced Dimensity 700, the company’s latest mid-range SoC with built-in 5G months after the Dimensity 720. It has two Cortex-A76 cores operating up to 2.2GHz and six power-efficient ARM Cortex-A55 cores operating at up to 2.0GHz. The MediaTek 5G UltraSave technology uses both network and content awareness intelligence to manage the modem’s operating mode in real-time to extend battery life.
It has ARM Mali G57 MC2 GPU graphics, two carrier aggregation (2CC CA) and 5G dual SIM dual standby (DSDS) offering fastest speeds and 5G-exclusive Voice over New Radio (VoNR) services from either connection. It supports voice assistants from global brands such as Alibaba, Amazon, Baidu, Google, and Tencent.

MediaTek MT8192 and MT8195 Chipsets for Next Generation of Chromebook
MediaTek also unveiled its MT8192 and MT8195 chipsets for the next generation of Chromebooks. The 7nm MT8192 is targeted at mainstream devices and the 6nm MT8195 for premium Chromebooks.
- MT8192 and MT8195 chipsets integrate a high performance AI processing unit (APU) to power a wide range of voice and vision-based applications.
- MediaTek’s powerful APU technology is designed to seamlessly process voice ID recognition and voice control, speech and image recognition, speech to text, live translation, object recognition, background removal, noise reduction, image and video segmentation and gesture control, all in real-time.
- Dedicated audio digital signal processor (DSP) enables ultra-low power voice wakeup (VoW) for voice assistants.
- High dynamic range (HDR) image signal processor and hardware depth engine with support for super-large 80MP 4-cell cameras, single 32MP cameras or dual camera setups up to 16 MP + 16 MP for sharp and crisp HDR for video conferencing.
- 4K HDR video decoding
- PCI-Express Gen 3 and USB 3.2 Gen 1 support
The MT8195 has an Octa-Core CPU with four ARM Cortex-A78 cores and four power-efficient ARM Cortex-A55 cores, integrates MediaTek’s APU 3.0, providing up to 4 TOPS performance. It has ARM-Mali G57-MP4 GPU, quad-channel 2133MHz LPDDR4X memory, and supports up to three simultaneous displays. Other features include Dolby Vision, 7.1 surround sound audio and a Codec AV1 hardware video accelerator.
The MT8192 has an Octa-Core CPU with four ARM Cortex-A76 cores and four power-efficient ARM Cortex-A55 cores, integrates MediaTek’s APU 2.0 provides with up to 2.4 TOPs performance. It has Mali-G57-MP5 GPU, 2133MHz LPDDR4x memory and UFS 2.1 storage. It supports up to (WQHD) displays with standard 60Hz refresh-rates, or Full HD+ displays with up to 120Hz refresh-rates. Both these can support two Full HD displays simultaneously.
Chromebooks powered by the MT8192 will roll out starting from Q2 2021, and the MT8195 will power premium Chromebooks, smart displays, tablets and other smart devices sometime later 2021.
