Gadgetren – MediaTek Dimensity 7050 has become one of the popular chipsets used in many mid-range mobile phones.
Many 5G supported mobile phones using chipsets made by MediaTek consist of realm 11 Pro, realm 11 Pro+, iQOO Z8x, vivo Y74T, vivo Y75T, POCO M7, Honor 70 SE 5G and Lava Agni 2 5G.
With so many devices using the Dimensity 7050, compared to other chipsets, which model actually has the same or close performance? Here is an explanation.
MediaTek Dimensity 7050 equal to what?
Based on the tracking by the Gadgetren team, the Dimensity 7050 is almost on par with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G both in terms of performance and features. Moreover, these two chipsets are both intended for mid-range mobile phones.
Reporting from Nano Review, the MediaTek Dimensity 7050 managed to get an AnTuTu v9 score of 551,168 points which is slightly higher than the Snapdragon 778G with a score of 534,400 points.
MediaTek Dimensity 7050 has Octa-Core configuration with Dual-Core 2.6 GHz Cortex-A78 + Hexa-Core 2 GHz Cortex-A55. While Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G with Octa-Core has Mono-Core 2.4GHz Kryo 670 Prime + Tri-Core 2.2GHz Kryo 670 Gold + Quad-Core 1.9GHz Kryo 670 Silver composition.
The Kryo 670 Prime and Kryo 670 Gold belonging to the Snapdragon 778G are able to handle high performance that naturally competes with the Dimensity 7050’s Cortex-A78.
Although they have different processors, the Adreno 642L GPU from the Snapdragon 778G and the Mali-G68 MC4 in the Dimensity 7050 are both capable of handling good quality graphics.
Equipped with the Snapdragon X53 5G RF System modem, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G already supports 5G networks with download speeds of up to 3.7 Gbps and uploads of up to 1.6 Gbps.
Meanwhile, the 5G modem found in the MediaTek Dimensity 7050 can support 5G networks with download speeds of up to 2.77 Gbps and uploads of up to 1.25 Gbps.
Both these chipsets are backed by an NPU (Neural Processing Unit) which is capable of providing artificial intelligence capabilities to support various features and application needs.
The ISP (Image Signal Processor) in the Dimensity 7050 supports one camera with a maximum resolution of 200 MP. Meanwhile, the ISP Qualcomm Spectra 570L can support one camera up to 192 MP or two cameras with a maximum resolution of 36 MP.
Both these chipsets support RAM with LPDDR5 technology, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 6, GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Galileo, Q ZSS, NAVIC and internal storage with up to UFS 3.1 technology.
MediaTek Dimensity 7050 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G also support displays with a maximum resolution of Full HD + (2520 x 1080 pixels). If the Dimensity 7050 can support a display with a refresh rate of 120Hz, then the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G supports 144Hz.
Based on this explanation, it can be seen that Dimensity 7050 is superior in performance and resolution in a single camera. However, the Snapdragon 778G also has an advantage in screen refresh rates and 5G network support.
