MediaTek launches Helio G96 and Helio G88 SoCs

MediaTek has announced two new additions to its Helio G series with the Helio G96 and Helio G88. These system-on-chips (SoCs) will give device makers the ability to provide powerful smartphone features with cutting-edge display and photography capabilities.

The Helio G96 SoC offers support for 120Hz displays with up to FullHD+ resolution for smoother scrolling of webpages and animations in apps. The SoC’s 120Hz display support has no limitation in DDIC supply, C-phy or D-phy interface, and supports both LCD or AMOLED displays. Combined with support for up to 108MP cameras for more detailed images, fast Cat-13 4G LTE WorldMode modem integration, dual 4G SIM and VoLTE and ViLTE services, as well as its Intelligent Resource Management Engine and Networking Engine, the Helio G96 has been developed to bring a broad range of features and capabilities to 4G smartphones.

Announced in tandem, the Helio G88 SoC supports fast 90Hz Display capabilities to mobile app and operating systems (OS). Its octa-core CPU features two Arm Cortex-A75 CPUs operating at up to 2.0GHz, enabling responsive reactions, fast app loading and camera captures.

The Helio G88 is able to support up to 64MP main cameras, a hardware depth engine for dual-camera bokeh captures, a Camera Control Unit (CCU) and electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and Rolling Shutter Compensation (RSC) technologies.

“With the launch of the Helio G96 and Helio G88, MediaTek advances its position as the leading mobile chip innovator, delivering new SoCs to boost display and photography experiences for the mainstream market,” said CH Chen, Deputy General Manager of Wireless Communication Products at MediaTek’s Wireless Business Group. “MediaTek is continually advancing chip performance, speed and reliability. These new Helio G series chips are at the core of incredible mobile experiences.”
