MediaTek Helio P70 SoC brings great energy efficiency, improved AI processing to mid-range phones:
MediaTek’s SoCs may not be found inside many Android flagships in the Western Hemisphere (or any at all), but when it comes to low and mid-end smartphones, the company has provided stiff competition for Qualcomm’s industry-leading chips for quite some time now, especially in markets like China and India.
Mobile phone manufacturers will be able to use the MediaTek Helio P70 to process up to 32MP photographs, as well as snapshots taken by dual camera systems with up to 24 + 16MP sensors.
Built on TSMC’s 12 nm FinFET architecture, the Helio P70 is obviously just as focused on saving power as it is on maximizing it, delivering “high performance” balanced with “incredible” energy efficiency.
The octa-core CPU is made up of performance-focused Cortex-A73 cores clocked at up to 2.1 GHz for 13 percent more speed than the P60, as well as frugal A53s. The graphics processing unit is a Mali-G72 MP3 with a maximum 900 MHz frequency taking care of a no doubt respectable gaming experience, while an integrated multi-core APU (AI Processing Unit) operating at up to 525 MHz offers 30 percent more AI power.
Finally, MediaTek is including all the “latest connectivity standards” here to fully satisfy both phone-making partners and end users, with VoLTE, ViLTE, VoWi-Fi, global eMBMS, HPUE, and 600 MHz (Band 71) frequency all supported for truly universal coverage.
