MediaTek is working on new processors to integrate its processor lines. We saw this last year with the arrival of the Helio G90 and G90T processors.
In late December, the company took a step forward with the announcement of Dimensity processors with 5G. Now, the company has announced the Helio G70, and there is still the G80 for intermediate smartphones.
While everything suggests that MediaTek is paying more attention to the G and Dimensity series, we see that there is still room for the company's P series of processors. Today, the company launched the Helio P95.
The Helio P95 is an Octa-Core chipset with 2x Cortex-A75 cores clocked at 2.2GHz and 6x Cortex-A55 clocked at 2.0GHz. There is a GPU Imagination PowerVR GM 94446 with a 10% improvement in performance over the last generation.
The new chipset it also has a large L3 cache. The new System-on-Chip comes with support for up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM (1866 MHz) and storage UFS 2.1.
In terms of cameras, we have support for 64 megapixel sensors or dual 24 megapixel cameras + 16 megapixels. O SoC supports screens with resolutions up to 2520×1080 with a 21: 9 aspect ratio.
The SoC has a triple ISP with 14-bit RAW processing and 10-bit YUV. It also has AI camera enhancements, such as AI-NR low-light photography, tracking of human poses in 5 people, various objects and scene identification and AI depth mechanism.
The new Helio P95 also features APU 2.0, which MediaTek claims to achieve a 10% increase in benchmark performance compared to the latest generation. According to MediaTek, this makes it one of the most powerful AI engines for 4G smartphones on the market.
MediaTek's HyperEngine brings improvements to the games and adjusts the entire device, so that users can experience a fluid gaming experience. It features 4G LTE Cat., 4 x 4 MIMO, 256 QAM, ViLTE, VoLTE, Dual SIM VoLTE 4G dual, Band 71, WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0.
Now, what remains to be seen is whether companies will adopt this new SoC. No manufacturer has announced whether to be the first to launch a smartphone with it. Furthermore, MediaTek also did not reveal when we should expect to see it on the devices. In an era of gaming SoCs and 5G chips, we're curious to see if companies will bet on a standard chipset.
