MediaTek Unveils Helio G96 and Helio G88 Chipsets.

MediaTek Unveils Helio G96 and Helio G88 Chipsets.

Last year, MediaTek launched the Helio G95 SoC with the company’s HyperEngine game technology for optimizing CPU, GPU, and RAM along with connectivity. Now, the company has announced its successor dubbed MediaTek Helio G96. Along with the Helio G96, the company also announced another G-series chipset, called MediaTek Helio G88. Both the chips are designed with a focus on mobile photography.

MediaTek Helio G96 SoC

The MediaTek Helio G96 offers support for 120Hz displays with up to Full-HD+ screen resolution. It supports both LCD and AMOLED panels without limitation in DDIC supply, C-phy or D-phy interface. To take care of the gaming needs, the company has also added HyperEngine 2.0 Lite technology.

The chipset features two Arm Cortex-A76 CPUs operating at up to 2.05GHz. There’s also LPDDR4X memory and UFS 2.2 storage. It supports 108-megapixel cameras, fast Cat-13 4G LTE WorldMode modem integration, dual 4G SIM and VoLTE and ViLTE services, as well as the company’s Intelligent Resource Management Engine and Networking Engine.

On the other hand, the MediaTek Helio G88 supports Full HD+ screen resolution (1080p+) at a 90Hz refresh rate. It comes packed with an octa-core CPU that features two Arm Cortex-A75 CPUs operating at up to 2.0GHz and Mali-G52 MC2 GPU.

It has support for 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) technologies.

MediaTek is yet to disclose anything about the pricing and availability for either of the chipsets and the upcoming devices powered by them. It seems like we will have to wait a bit longer to get information about the phones powered by these two chips.
