MediaTek Dimensity 700 vs Snapdragon 720G, the comparison between two budget 5G chipsets. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G launched last year in January while the MediaTek Dimensity 700 was revealed in November last year for entry-level 5G smartphones. Let’s see how the newly launched Mediatek’s 5G chipset will compete against Snapdragon’s mid-range 4G chipset.
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G has slightly higher clock speeds compared to MediaTek Dimensity 700.
- The MTK Dimensity 700 comes with the support of 5G while the SD 720G is 4G enable only.
- The MediaTek Dimensity 700 is the latest launched hence it is built on a 7nm fabrication process while the Snapdragon 720G is based on an 8nm fabrication process.
- The Dimensity 700 has faster RAM support and the latest UFS 2.2 support while the Snapdragon 720G lacks.
