MediaTek has launched the new Helio P95 chipset for mid-range smartphones. The features of the new items are the accelerator of artificial intelligence APU 2.0, which increases the speed of gadgets in various scenarios, support for cameras with a resolution of up to 64 megapixels and proprietary gaming technology HyperEngine.
The eight-core MediaTek processor as part of the mobile platform is represented by two Cortex-A75 cores (2.2 GHz) and six Cortex-A55 (2.0 GHz) cores. The PowerVR GM 9446 graphics accelerator, according to the manufacturer, provides a 10% increase in SoC performance compared to the Helio P90. The chipset supports up to 8 GB of RAM LPDDR4X with a frequency of 1866 MHz and drives standard UFS 2.1.
Manufacturers of smartphones based on Helio P95 can use displays with a resolution of up to 2520×1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 21: 9, as well as cameras with 64 MP sensors or dual modules (24 + 16 MP). The image processor supports the processing of 14-bit RAW and 10-bit YUV images. For obtaining high-quality photographs in poor lighting conditions, recognition in a frame of up to 5 people at the same time and accurate determination of the depth of images is answered by the neural computing unit.
The company positions the proprietary engine APU 2.0 as “one of the most powerful AI-based solutions for smartphones with support for 4G LTE”. MediaTek HyperEngine technology is designed to optimize system resources when launching games. The list of wireless interfaces supported by the chipset includes Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0 standards.
The date of the start of supply of the new mobile platform and the list of smartphones that will be the first to receive the new processor are not reported by the chip maker.
