Helio G96 Chipset Supporting 108 Megapixel camera and 120 Hz Display. Chinese chip maker MediaTek has unveiled the powerful Helio G96 chipset.
The company has also brought a G88 chipset. But looking at their names, it may be an upgrade of the previous Helio G98 and G85, but they are not entirely an upgrade of the previous chipset.
The Helio G96 has two Cortex-A76 cores and six A55 cores. It has a Mali-G57 MC2 GPU which is slightly lower than the previous G76 MC4.
It supports a 120 Hz refresh rate and 1080+ pixel resolution and up to a 108-megapixel camera. Also supports 4K video at 30 frames per second.
It also comes with fast storage like fast ATE, UFS 2.2, and a new Bluetooth version of 5.2.
The Helio G88 has two Cortex A75 cores and six A55 cores. It has Mali G52 MC2 GPU.
The LTE modem is the same as in the previous version. It supports displays up to 1080+ pixels at a 90 Hz refresh rate.
Also, it supports up to a 64-megapixel main camera.
120Hz displays are ideal for smartphones to offer premium everyday user experiences, with notably smoother scrolling of webpages and animations in apps. Device makers can build G96-powered smartphones with either LCD or AMOLED displays up to FullHD+ resolution.
High-end 4G smartphones can feature an immense 108MP camera that can capture the most detailed images.
In addition, brands can build smartphones with a variety of multi-camera designs using the various lens and sensor options, giving users the option of wide, macro, telephoto captures, or other photographic and video experiences.
Premium noise reduction techniques (hardware-based 3DNR and MFNR) enable enhanced night-shot and ultra-low light capture performance. A dedicated AI facial detection engine ensures apps and security actions are both fast and secure.
An HEVC encoding acceleration means capturing video uses less power, and the videos themselves take up less space.
