MediaTek revealed its new Helio G70 chipset, acclaimed to be developed for gaming in entry-level to modest mid-range smartphones. Built on the 12nm technology as in the Helio G90, the G70, however, scales back on the computational resources.
The G70 comprises two Cortex-A75 cores that clocks at 2GHz and six A55 cores. Again, the G90 also features a similar setup, however, it makes use of the A76 cores; the newer and faster ones though having same clock speed as in the A75 cores.
Also, G70 only supports eMMC 5.1 thereby lacks fast UFS storage.
As for the graphics, the Helio G70 chipset comes with Mali-G52 2EEMC2 that runs at 820Mhz. Similarly, the display resolution numbers to 1080p maximum and supports an aspect ratio of up to 21:9.
Moreover, it has a CorePilot that looks after the CPU and GPU clock speeds thereby administer persistent performance even during elongated gaming. While the Voice on Wakeup enables voice assistants even with the least power usage.
The G70’s IPS on the inside provides support for one 48MP camera lens (Quad Bayer) or two 16MP camera lenses (second of which can be an ultrawide, telephoto, macro, or whatever makers think of). Hardware depth map calculations may be done while NeuroPilot takes care of the AI chore including object/scene recognition, bokeh enhancement, etc.
You’ll find the chipset limited for use in mid-range devices during video capture too (1080p/60fps). Although, makers have included EIS and rolling shutter correction on board.
The Helio G70 comes with a modem supporting dual 4G VoLTE and 300Mbps downlink. And you have Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and Bluetooth 5.0 for local connectivity.
Chinese media sources are putting an assertion that the new MediaTek Helio G70 chipset will get its place in phones of price range NCY1,000, i.e. around $145/€130.
