MediaTek introduced Helio P70 12nm TSMC FinFET technology. It built with TSMC’s 12nm FinFET technology, with multi-core APU operating at up to 525 MHz for fast and efficient edge-AI processing. AI engine delivers a 10 to 30% AI processing boost compared to Helio P60.
Helio P70 has slightly over clocked ARM Cortex-A73 2.1 GHz CPUs and four ARM Cortex-A53 2.0 GHz CPUs in an Octa-core big.LITTLE configuration as the P60. It has ARM Mali-G72 MP3 GPU operating at up to 900 MHz, which promises a 13% performance improvement, compared to the Helio P60. “In popular games that frequently generate a heavy load across SoC, P70 provides 7% better DOU and up to 35% lower power versus P60,” . It has support for 20:9 displays at Full HD+ resolution.
MediaTek’s AI video encoder enhances video call quality even when connection bandwidth is limited. It can used for video calls including Skype calls, Facebook video calls and Youtube live video streaming. It has improved deep-learning facial detection that promises up to 90% accuracy. It has Dual 4G VoLTE support and the MediaTek’s smart antenna technology automatically uses the best antenna combination to sustain signal quality.
“Its three ISPs are tuned to provide significant power savings, reducing consumption by 18% compared to previous Helio generation dual-camera setups says MediaTek. Helio P70 is in production now, and is expected to available in smartphones by November this year
