MediaTek has released the Helio G80 mobile platform for mid-range gaming smartphones. One of the main features of the new product is support for HyperEngine technology, designed to speed up the processing of game scenarios.
The new chipset Helio G80 is based on 12-nm process technology, received two ARM Cortex-A75 processor cores with a maximum clock speed of up to 2 GHz and six Cortex-A55 (1.7 GHz). The GPU Mali-G52 2EEMC2 with a video core frequency of up to 950 MHz is responsible for the graphics capabilities of the platform.
Proprietary HyperEngine technology uses a switching mechanism between Wi-Fi and LTE for 13 milliseconds to eliminate disconnects in online games. A special algorithm also provides smart control of the processor, GPU, and memory, optimizing the gameplay in demanding applications and reducing the battery consumption of the smartphone. The list of wireless interfaces supported by the chipset includes Wi-Fi 8092.11 ac (2.4 GHz + 5 GHz), Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, GLONASS, Beidou and Galileo, as well as LTE Cat. thirteen.
The mobile platform supports working with RAM LPDDR3-933 (up to 4 GB) and LPDDR4X-1800 (up to 8 GB), as well as eMMC 5.1 drives. Multimedia features include support for camera sensors up to 48 megapixels, a face-unlock feature for front-facing modules, bokeh effects, electronic image stabilization by the Hardware Warping Engine, and 4K @30 fps video decoding (H.264, H.265, HEVC).
The debut of the first smartphones based on the new mobile platform is expected this month.
