MediaTek Helio G70 Chip Launched For Entry-Level Gaming Phones
MediaTek released the Helio G90 series processors for gaming phones last summer. But this product has little market share compared to Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G and 855 Plus processors. Now, MediaTek has launched the Helio G70 series for entry-level gaming phones.
The Helio G70 still uses an octa-core design. The large core uses Cortex-A75 instead of Cortex-A76, and the frequency is 2GHz. The small core still uses Cortex-A55, but the frequency is lowered to 1.7GHz. Plus, it supports eMMC 5.1 storage.
It’s unclear what the Helio G70T is different in terms of specifications, but there is nothing to think that the main frequency, especially the large core frequency, will be higher. MediaTek Helio G70 series supports 48-megapixel camera and 1080p resolution. Plus, it supports AI face unlock and other functions. However, you shouldn’t confuse it with the Dimensity series products. We mean it does not support 5G networks and it is aiming at another market. This chip may use a 12nm FinFET process and be equipped with MediaTek HyperEngin technology to enhance gaming performance.
In general, the parameters and support of MediaTek Helio G70 series are relatively ordinary, and the performance should be higher than some Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processors. Not supporting UFS storage is a big penalty point. We think it should be used in game phones priced at from 1000 yuan to 1500 yuan. As for the manufacturers, we think Redmi, Realme and other ‘small’ brands can get it.
