The MediaTek Dimensity 720 is built on the 7nm manufacturing process and uses an octa-core CPU that consists of 2x Cortex-A76 cores, 6x Cortex-A55 cores, along with a Mali-G57 MC3 GPU. The new MediaTek processor can be paired with LPDRR4X RAM and UFS 2.1 storage. Also Read - Redmi Note 10 spotted online featuring MediaTek Dimensity 820 chipset

The chipset also brings support for standards like 90Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ display support, Bluetooth 5.1, and more. The Dimensity 720 will also support 64-megapixel cameras and 20-megapixel + 16-megapixel dual camera configurations. There is also support for 4K video recording.

In other news, the upcoming Redmi Note 10 was recently spotted on AI Benchmark, a benchmarking website. The upcoming Redmi Note-series device was spotted with the MediaTek Dimensity 820 Chipset and that means that it will feature 5G capabilities too. This 5G-enabled chip is the same one that powered the Redmi 10X 5G and the Redmi 10X Pro 5G phones by the brand. The variant in the benchmark, listed on July 20, also runs on Android 10 and feature 8GB RAM.

Note that the benchmark is likely from a Chinese version of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10. This doesn’t guarantee that a global variant of the Note 10 will be available with the same specifications. It is also possible that this device ends up being a China-only device. Alternatively, we might see a toned-down global variant with a Snapdragon chipset and missing 5G support.
