MediaTek is working on a new MediaTek Helio G-series single-chip platform that will bring advanced technology to relatively affordable smartphones, GSMArena reports, citing reliable sources. A chip based on 6nm process technology is reported to be in development to replace the 12nm Helio G96.
The chip in question is referred to as the Next-G in MediaTek’s filings as it has yet to receive an official marketing name. It uses the same CPU configuration as the Helio G96, combining two powerful Cortex-A76 cores and six energy-efficient Cortex-A55 cores. The graphics also remain the same – Mali G57 MC2.
The new platform can handle cameras up to 108MP, record video up to 2K resolution at 30fps and support Full HD+ displays with refresh rates up to 120Hz. The chip will not offer 5G connectivity, which will likely make it the solution for affordable smartphones.
It is reported that the novelty will debut in the second half of the year, and the Chinese company Doogee will be the first to build a smartphone based on it.
