Snapdragon 480 vs MediaTek Dimensity 700, the comparison between two budget 5G chipsets. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 launched recently for entry-level 5G smartphones while the MediaTek Dimensity was revealed in November last year. Let’s see how the newly launched Qualcomm 5G chipset will compete against MediaTek’s entry-level 5G chipset.
- MediaTek Dimensity 700 has higher clock speeds compared to Qualcomm Snapdragon 480
- SD 480 with Adreno 619 has a better GPU than Mali G57 MC2 on MTK Dimensity 700.
- Qualcomm SD 480 has Wi-Fi 6 support while Dimensity 700 doesn’t have Wi-Fi 6 support.
- Snapdragon 480 has video capture support of 1080p@60fps while Dimensity 700 can shoot 1080p@30fps at max.
- MediaTek Dimensity 700 has better power efficiency because it is based on 7nm fabrication.

Snapdragon 480 vs MediaTek Dimensity 700
Both of the chipsets are very capable chipsets and provide great performance and insane 5G downlink and uplink speeds. Although, the benchmarks scores of Snapdragon 480 are not available yet so we can hardly say which chipset is a winner in the performance. as soon as we got the benchmark scores we update this page so stay tuned.
But as the Snapdragon 480 is launched recently so it comes with the latest Wi-Fi 6 support as well while Dimensity 700 doesn’t. The SD 480 can also provide a higher refresh rate on the Full-HD+ resolution and also provide better frames while capturing a video if compared to MTK Dimensity 700.
