Helio G96 and Helio G88 – With the addition of Helio G96 and Helio G88 systems-on-chip (SoCs) to its Helio G series of SoCs, MediaTek is expanding its portfolio. According to the company, the Helio G series will enable manufacturers to roll out next-generation devices with high-quality photography and advanced display capabilities.
Features of the MediaTek Helio G96 SoC
Featuring a full HD+ display and 120 Hz refresh rate, it is possible to scroll on web pages or view in-app animations with smoother results. Whenever you use Helio G96, you can select from three types of display interfaces, including C-phy and D-phy. For detailed images, it supports LCDs and AMOLED displays. It also supports cameras up to 108 MP.
With the Helio G96, you can optimize 4G speeds with Cat-13 4G LTE WorldMode modem integration. Dual 4G SIM cards along with VoLTE and ViLTE services are provided. Networking Engines and Intelligent Resource Management Engines are built into the software. A new Gaming Technology called MediaTek HyperEngine 2.0 Lite is also integrated into the chipset.
Features of the MediaTek Helio G88 SoC
The device includes an octa-core processor with two Arm Cortex-A75 processors operating at up to 2.0GHz; better performance, quicker app, and picture loading.
As part of the G88 SoC, you’ll also find a hardware depth engine for dual-camera bokeh capture, as well as a Camera Control Unit (CCU), Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS), and Rolling Shutter Compensation (RSC).
“With the launch of the Helio G96 and Helio G88, MediaTek advances its position as the leading mobile chip innovator in the mainstream market,” said CH Chen, Deputy General Manager of Wireless Communication Products at MediaTek’s Wireless Business Group. It is continuously improving the speed, performance, and reliability of chips. In these new Helio G series chips, mobile experiences are there into something incredible”.
Therefore, two Arm Cortex-A76 CPUs operate at up to 2.05GHz are there in the chipset. The storage device is also UFS 2.2 compliant and has LPDDR4X memory. It supports dual 4G SIM cards with VoLTE and ViLTE services, along with the company’s Intelligent Resource Management Engine and Networking Engine, as well as 108-megapixel cameras.
In contrast, the MediaTek Helio G88 can produce Full HD+ output (1080p+) at a refresh rate of 90Hz. Two Arm Cortex-A75 CPUs can operate up to 2GHz, and the GPU is a Mali-G52 MC2.
Therefore, this camera supports up to 64-megapixel main cameras, a hardware depth engine for dual-camera bokeh captures. A Camera Control Unit (CCU), Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS), and Rolling Shutter Compensation (RSC).
MediaTek has not released any details about the upcoming chipsets and the devices that they will power as of this writing. To learn more about the phones powered by these two chips, we will have to wait some time.
