MediaTek has revealed that the 7nm chip includes the most power-efficient 5G modem in its chipset family as it is built with the company’s 5G UltraSave technology that uses both network and content awareness intelligence to support the modem’s operating more in real-time which helps extend the battery life.
Moreover, to offer an even better overall experience, the Dimensity 720 chipset also integrates multimedia, connectivity, and imagining features.
