MediaTek has been busy this season launching some great budget gaming and high performing SoCs. To strengthen its budget SoCs, the Taiwanese manufacturing giant has launched another new SoC named Helio P95 which comes under the very successful Helio P series.
Being the OEM’s latest 4G/LTE chipset, the Helio P95 does have some impressive connectivity specs, including Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0, as well as Cat. 12 download speeds; Cat. 13 upload speeds; 4 x 4 MIMO; ViLTE; VoLTE; Band 71 support and dual 4G SIMs.
It boasts to feature an AI Processing Unit (APU) 2.0, which according to the OEM will improve it’s benchmarking in this area compared to its predecessor by 10%.
Talking of raw hardware specs, the Helio P95 consists of 2 Cortex-A75 performance cores clocked at 2.2GHz and 6 Cortex-A55 cores at 2.0GHz for handling daily tasks.
It packs an Imagination PowerVR GM 94446 GPU that promises 10% improvement over the previous generation and enhanced gaming performance. The chip can support displays up to 2520×1080 resolution.
The Helio P95 can capture impressive high-resolution photos at up to 64MP and dual camera arrays of up to 24+16MP. MediaTek’s unique triple ISP can now handle up to 14-bit RAW and 10-bit YUV processing.
The SoC offers some great camera features including “AI-NR” low-light photography mode; 5-person human pose tracking; multiple objects- and scene-identification, efficient hardware depth-engine and AI-camera processing.
It supports H.264, H.265 / HEVC video encoding and playback with max RAM support up to 8GB that too dual-channel LPDDR4x RAM clocked at 1866MHz and supports UFS 2.1 storage. Notably, the SoC also supports 4K video capture with up to 3840 x 2160 resolution.
Then there’s MediTek’s proprietory HyperEngine Game Technology that helps the processor to handle CPU and GPU resource allocation more intelligently and dynamically. It also improves the power efficiency for better battery life while gaming.
Also, there are other MediaTek HyperEngine connectivity enhancements are on board, alongside the in-house CorePilot, Pump Express, Tiny Sensor Hub, and Integrated VoW (voice on wakeup) technologies. Soon we can expect smartphones featuring the Helio P95 SoC.
