MediaTek has launched its latest gaming-focused chipset for smartphones. Called the MediaTek Helio G95, the chipset comes with enhanced MediaTek HyperEngine game technology, multi-camera support, better connectivity, and AI Super resolution for video streams.
In a press statement, the company said that the new chipset is aimed at the premium 4G gaming smartphone segment. It will power smartphones launching in September this year. It is likely that the upcoming Realme 7 series phone and Oppo F15 Pro could be powered by this processor. Both the upcoming devices are expected to be mid-range phones.
MediaTek Helio G95 is said to offer faster gaming performance. It comes with features like advanced multi-camera photography – up to 4 cameras and an inbuilt AI processing unit (APU). “It provides dual wake-up word support and enables HDR10 standard display, which can be enhanced to approach HDR10+ quality in real-time” the company said.
The newly launched processor is equipped with a pair of Arm Cortex-A76 CPUs operating up to 2.05GHz, plus six Cortex-A55 CPUs, with Arm Mali-g76 MC4, operating at up to 900 MHz for advanced single and multicore performance. The chip is also equipped with an ultra-low power, always-on DSP that supports dual wake-up word detection, ensuring concurrence between two parallel Voice Wakeup (VoW) functions. The ultra-low power DSP minimizes power consumption of applications such as the always-on Google Assistant and supports multiple keyword triggers and virtual assistants.
MediaTek’s new chip is claimed to offer an AI Super Resolution display for superior video calling and video streaming. It can support video qualities ranging from 360p to 720p HD resolution in real-time and features FHD+ 90fps displays for fast responsiveness and smooth experience. The chip enables devices featuring up to 64MP camera, with quad-pixel technology. It enables depth engines for real-time portrait bokeh, AI-FD (Fast & precise AI face detection engine), MFNR, Warping, 3DNR, video encoding and decoding at 4K 30fps, along with integrated APU for AI camera enhancement.
