MediaTek unveils Helio G70 chipset for entry-level gaming phones

New Delhi, Jan 15 : The Taiwanese fabless semiconductor company MediaTek has unveiled a new gaming-oriented chipset 'Helio G70' for entry-level phones.

It is equipped with the company's "HyperEngine" technology which is also present in the Helio G90 chipsets, the company said in a statement on Tuesday.

Heading over to the graphics department, the chip features Mali-G52 2EEMC2 running at 820Mhz.

The G70 incorporates a pair of powerful Arm Cortex-A75 CPUs operating up to 2GHz, plus six Cortex-A55 CPUs in a single, octa-core cluster.

The MediaTek Helio G70 enables brands to mix up large, dual camera systems that use wide angle, telescopic, macro or other lens setups to create differentiated smartphone options.

The secure ISP design means facial recognition actions such as smartphone unlocking are ultra-fast, highly accurate and add a new layer of security.

Building on generations of photographic excellence in MediaTek Helio, the G70 includes a multitude of hardware accelerator, such as a dedicated depth engine, Camera Control Unit (CCU), Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and Rolling Shutter Compensation (RSC) technology that enhances video panning and ultra-fast recording (up to 240fps).

It also builds in VoW (voice on wakeup) capability, which optimizes platform size and minimizes power use for voice assistant services.
