- MediaTek Helio G96 and Helio G88 chipsets have been announced
- Both the chipsets are built on TSMC 12nm process and feature HyperEngine 2.0 Lite technology for gaming
- The MediaTek Helio G96 and Helio G88 chipsets are expected to power next-generation phones later this year
MediaTek Helio G96 and Helio G88 mobile chipsets have been announced with a focus on smartphone photography. The former comes as a successor to the Helio G95 that was unveiled last year with MediaTek’s HyperEngine game technology. The MediaTek Helio G96 supports an FHD+ display with 120Hz display, both LCD and AMOLED panels without any limitation in DDIC supply, C-PHY and D-PHY interface. There’s HyperEngine 2.0 Lite technology that includes Intelligent Resource Management Engine and Networking Engine for gaming needs. Both the chipsets are built on TSMC 12nm process and are expected to power next-generation phones later this year.
MediaTek Helio G96 details
The MediaTek Helio G96 chipset features two ARM Cortex-A76 CPUs operating at 2.05GHz and six ARM Cortex-A55 CPUs with ARM Mali-G57 MC2 GPU. It supports LPDDR4X RAM, UFS 2.2 storage, up to 108MP camera, CAT-13 4G LTE WorldMode modem integration, dual 4G SIM, VoLTE, and ViLTE services. There’s support for MediaTek’s Intelligent Resource Management Engine and Networking Engine. For photography, the chipset features 3X ISP, AI face detection, HW depth engine, single-dual cam Bokeh, hardware warping engine (EIS), rolling shutter compensation (RSC) engine, MEMA, 3DNR, multi-frame noise reduction. There’s integrated Dual-Band Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS/NAVIC.
MediaTek Helio G88 specifications
On the other hand, the MediaTek Helio G88 chipset is also built on a 12nm process and features two ARM Cortex-A75 CPUs operating at 2GHz and six ARM Cortex-A55 CPUs with Mali-G52 MC2 GPU. It supports LPDDR4X RAM, eMMC 5.1 storage, FHD+ 90Hz display with 21:9 aspect ratio, up to 64MP camera, CAT-7 4G LTE, Dual-Band Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS+ Glonass + Beidou + Galileo and FM Radio. For photography features, it is equipped with features like AI smart photo album, single-dual cam Bokeh, Hardware Warping Engine (EIS), rolling shutter compensation (RSC), MEMA 3DNR, and multi-frame noise reduction.
