Just after Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 announcement, MediaTek has announced the successor of Helio P60 – MediaTek Helio P70. The chipset was announced at the MWC early this year. It features improved performance, AI processing and other enhancements.
MediaTek Helio P70 Octa-Core 12nm Processor
The Helio P70 is built with TSMC’s 12nm FinFET technology, same as the predecessor, but this comes with multi-core APU operating at up to 525 MHz for fast and efficient edge-AI processing. According to the company, the AI engine delivers a 10 to 30% AI processing boost compared to the Helio P60.
It packs a slightly overclocked ARM Cortex-A73 2.1 GHz CPUs and four ARM Cortex-A53 2.0 GHz CPUs in an Octa-core big. It has ARM Mali-G72 MP3 GPU operating at up to 900 MHz, promising a 13% performance improvement, compared to the Helio P60. It also supports 20:9 displays at Full HD+ resolution.
Furthermore, MediaTek’s AI video encoder enhances video call quality even when connection bandwidth is limited, which can be used for video calls including Skype calls, Facebook video calls and Youtube live video streaming. It comes with an improved deep-learning facial detection that promises up to 90% accuracy.
Not just that, it has Dual 4G VoLTE support and the MediaTek’s smart antenna technology automatically uses the best antenna combination to sustain signal quality. We are expecting more phones with the MediaTek Helio P70 processor by the end of 2018.
