Introducing Helio G96 and Helio G88, Mediatek’s new 4G processors
EMGblog.com: While the Dimensity processors of Mediatek company, including full The most popular processing solutions in the current market and their traces can be found in dozens of 5G phones in different brands, this company has not forgotten its previous 4G processors, the Helio series, and on Thursday, July 15, 2021, two new members It has unveiled Helio G96 and Helio G88 for this family. These two chipsets should be a continuation of the two models Helio G95 and Helio G85 of this company, which were introduced in September and May 2020, respectively. The processing cores of G96 and G88 are no different from before, and in the case of G96, we have even faced regression in terms of graphics!
Helio G96 is apparently still a 12nm chipset, which like its previous counterparts It means Helio G90T and A55 in the lower category. Surprisingly, this processor has completely moved backwards in terms of graphics and while Mali-G76 MC4 graphics were used in G95 and G90, this graphics in G96 was replaced by Mali-G57 MC2 data in Dimensity 700 is also noticeable.
One of the most important positive changes of the G96 compared to before belongs to the camera department and its image signal processor (ISP), which now supports a single camera resolution of 108 megapixels. Of course, the resolution of the dual cameras in this processor has been reduced to two 16 megapixel units, while in G95 it was possible to use two 16 and 24 megapixel cameras together. The reduction of the G96 features in the frame per second of the camera has also continued and while the resolution of 64 megapixels with 22.5 frames per second was supported in the G95, this figure has reached 32 megapixels with 30 frames per second in the G96.
The maximum screen resolution supported by this processor is still 1080 x 2520 pixels, but now it also supports 120 Hz refresh rate. Support for recording 4K video at 30 frames per second and Full HD and HD at 120 and 240 frames per second, respectively, are other noteworthy points in this section that have not changed compared to the G95.
In the field of memory and memory, we do not face any particular change and LPDDR4X RAM with a maximum frequency of 2,133 MHz and eMMC 5.1 and UFS 2.2 memories are covered in G96. A subtle difference in this part is the support of UFS 2.2 memory, which was not there in the G95, and at most UFS 2.1 memory was supported in it.
Wi-Fi is still version 5 or ac, but Bluetooth has been upgraded from 5 to 5.2 and support for dual-frequency routers (only in Galileo/BeiDou/QZSS) has also been added to its list of features.
In the structure of this processor and of course Helio G88, there is talk of gaming technology called HyperEngine 2.0 Lite, in which the relationship between the processor, GPU and memory is proportional to the amount of energy. The required, generated heat and other gameplay factors are intelligently and dynamically managed. In this section, the type of user’s connection with the network is also managed to obtain a faster response and a more reliable connection.
Helio G88 has a difference in terms of processing cores. We don’t, and 2 A75 cores with a frequency of 2 GHz and 6 A55 cores are once again left in place. This time, we don’t see any change in the graphic part either, and the same. Mali-G52 MC2 with a frequency of 1 GHz is also present here.
MediaTek has not published any information about when these chipsets will be presented to the market and the first phones equipped with them, but we can expect to see the presence of these two processors in low-end and mid-range phones soon.
