A budget Cherry Mobile MediaTek 5G phone soon?

MediaTek hasn't disclosed much info regarding what type of Dimensity SoC solution is that and when will it officially launch yet. But, we suspect that it could be a Dimensity 700 series chip since Cherry Mobile is known for making very affordable devices.

If ever, we won't be surprised if it will be a Dimensity 720-powered smartphone.

As a quick recap,  Dimensity 720 is a TSMC-built 7nm chip with 5G SA/NSA for affordable smartphones. It uses 2x ARM Cortex-A76 cores and 6c Cortex A55 cores clocked at 2.0GHz. The chip is paired with the ARM Mali-G57 MC3 GPU and  MediaTek APU for AI tasks.

For 5G, the chip boasts a 2CC CA carrier aggregation, Voice over New Radio (VoNR), 5G, and 4G dual SIM with dual standby.

One thing is for sure, Cherry Mobile will try to bring the MediaTek 5G experience to the masses.

To recall, MediaTek is a long-time chip partner of Cherry Mobile.

Update: Cherry Mobile VP and Head of Products and Development Lonson Alejandrino told team GIZGUIDE that they will work closely with MTK and follow their chipset roadmap.

Mr. Alejandrino added that they are looking to use a Dimensity 800 series 5G chip instead.
