Chipset maker MediaTek has announced its next-generation Helio processor — the Helio P65 SoC that is said to be focusing on performance and better cameras along with gaming enhancements as well. The Helio P65 is said to be using the 12nm process comprising of eight core CPU architecture along with new GPU architecture. MediaTek claims this new processor should bring 25% faster performance improvements compared to older generation cores.
The new Helio P65 SoC comes with two Arm Cortex A75 and six Arm Cortex A55 cores making an eight-core core processor with frequency speeds of up to 2GHz. With the P65 chipset, the AI performance is also said to have improved 2X times when compared to previous iterations in MediaTek’s Helio Series. The chipset further supports Arm Mali-G52 2EEMC2 GPU as well. The new chipset also improves AI-camera tasks such as object recognition, scene detection, and background blur adjustments in single and dual camera Bokeh shots.
Speaking of the cameras, the MediaTek Helio P65 supports dual cameras of up to 16MP+16MP for wide angle and telephotos lenses and further the P65 chipset is capable of handling a single 48MP, 4-cell camera, which has been the norm in mid-range to flagship smartphones in 2019 as well. It further supports faster facial recognition for quicker unlocking of the device with added security as well. For video, the Helio P65 SoC supports of up to 2K video recording at 30fps.
On the storage front, it supports RAM options of up to 4 or 8GB and eMMC 5.1 storage type as well. The connectivity options include Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, and FM Radio. The company claims that they have built the most accurate GNSS and positioning engine with upgraded inertial navigation engines for better GPS capabilities.
We can expect the new Helio P65 mid-range chipset made by MediaTek in the upcoming phones of this year equipped in new mid-range phones in particular. Stay connected to PhoneRadar for more such interesting updates.
