Last year, MediaTek launched the Helio G90 and G90T chipsets for mid-range gaming smartphones. Now, more than a year later, the company has launched the next generation Helio G90 series processors, the MediaTek Helio G95. The new G-series processor features MediaTek’s HyperEngine game technology and is aimed at 4G gaming smartphones.
Dr Yenchi Lee, Deputy General Manager, Wireless Communications Business Unit, MediaTek, said, “The smartphone gaming segment shows sustained growth, with device makers keen on offering newer, more advanced technologies to gaming enthusiasts. MediaTek continues to enhance its G series gaming chips to deliver robust performance and MediaTek Helio G95 is our most powerful gaming chip to date.”
MediaTek Helio G95 processor specifications and features
The MediaTek Helio G95 is an octa-core processor comprising two ARM Cortex-A76 CPUs clocked at up to 2.05GHz accompanied by six Cortex-A55 power-efficient CPUs. The processor is backed by an ARM Mali-g76 MC4 GPU operating at up to 900MHz frequency. There’s an ultra-low powered, always-on DSP (Digital Signal Processor) to facilitate dual wake-up word detection for two separate voice assistants. The DSP also minimises power consumption of always-on apps such as Google Assistant.
The MediaTek HyperEngine game technology is designed with dedicated engines for networking, rapid response, picture quality, and resource management to provide an enhanced gaming experience. The chipset can also concurrently switch between Wi-Fi and LTE to offer smooth network connectivity while gaming.
The Helio G95 comes with an AI Super Resolution display feature with support for up to 90fps FHD+ screens. MediaTek claims that the Helio G95 reduces the network bandwidth while online streaming by 75 percent. It supports video resolutions ranging from 360p to 720p in real-time, for a superior video calling and streaming experience.
Additionally, the MediaTek Helio G95 features multi-camera support up to four cameras with a maximum resolution of 64-megapixels. The chipset offers quad-pixel technology for clear low light imaging, depth engine for a real-time bokeh effect, AI face detection engine, and an integrated APU for AI camera enhancement, among others.
MediaTek has announced that the first Helio G95-powered smartphones will start hitting global markets this month.
