Last year, MediaTek introduced the Helio G95 chipset with HyperEngine technology to optimize Internet performance and speed. It has now introduced its successor, the MediaTek Helio G96, along with another mid-range processor in the Helio G series – the MediaTek Helio G88, with both chipsets to be focused on photography. The Gizmochin portal informed about the news.
The new MediaTek processors should power mid-range smartphones, but we don’t know which ones yet
The MediaTek Helio G96 will support both LCD and AMOLED displays with Full HD + resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate. MediaTek has also ensured great compatibility with games and the processor will support HyperEngine 2.0 Lite technology. It will consist of two Arm Cortex-A76 cores with a frequency of up to 2.05 GHz. It will also lack support for LPDDR4X memory, UFS 2.2 storage, or a camera with a resolution of up to 108 MP.
On the other hand, MediaTek Helio G88 offers slightly worse specifications. It will support a display with Full HD + resolution, but only with a 90 Hz refresh rate. It will run on eight cores, two of which will be based on Arm Cortex-A75 technology with a frequency of up to 2.0 GHz. The Mali-G52 MC2 chip will take care of the graphics performance. The chipset will also support cameras up to 64 MP, electronic image stabilization, and Camera Control Unit (CCU) and Rolling Shutter (RSC) technologies.
Unfortunately, MediaTek did not reveal information about the price and availability of new processors or what kind of smartphones they will power during the presentation.
The OnePlus Nord 2 5G will be the company’s first smartphone with a MediaTek chipset, loaded with AI functions
