MediaTek unveils Helio G96 and G88 SoCs for midrangers

Taiwanese chipmaker MediaTek has announced two new members of the Helio G lineup earlier today — meet Helio G88 and G96.

Since MediaTek has introduced to us another pair of chipsets in the mid-range market, there’s a lot of things to talk about, especially with their features.

Starting off with the Helio G88. It is an octa-core processor featuring two Arm Cortex-A75 cores clocked up to 2Ghz. It has support for 90Hz displays along with an integrated voice wakeup as well as their next-generation HyperEngine 2.0 which is ‘designed expressly for gaming’.

Camera-wise, the chip supports up to 64MP main cameras including a hardware-based depth engine and camera-centric features like Camera Control Unit (CCU), Shutter Compensation (RSC), and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS).

Helio G88 aside, here comes a more upgraded chipset.

On the other hand, the Helio G96 SoC offers an octa-core (as usual) processor that consists of two Arm Cortex-A76 cores that boast performance up to 2.05Ghz, accompanied by a fast LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 2.2 for storage.

It also offers support for 120Hz Full HD displays, which the company claims to have no limitation in DDIC supply, C-phy, or D-phy interface, and supports both LCD and AMOLED panels. Moreover, the new chip offers support for up to 108MP main cameras for ‘the most stunning and detailed’ snapshots and a reliable 4G LTE connectivity with Cat-13 LTE integration and Global LTE band support.

The Helio G96 chip also supports the aforementioned HyperEngine 2.0 generation technology for gaming.

There’s no word yet on when will the two processors make their debut on phones but expect them to arrive, most likely, on midrangers.
