As expected, MediaTek today launched their new chipset, Helio P90. The new chipset succeeds and is similar to the Helio P70 that was announced last month and is yet to gain ground. The Helio P90 will only be available in real-world devices later next year.

Helio P90 Features

Touted to be an AI processing powerhouse, Helio P90 is manufactured on the same 12nm process which was used for Helio P70 and P60. What this new chipset brings to the table is the latest APU 2.0 which is expected to run more complex AI apps and functionalities simultaneously with ease.

This new APU (which is MediaTek’s term for NPU) is said to have 4 times more processing power than the previous versions. P90 is an Octa-core processing unit with 2 ARM A75 processors clocked at 2.2 GHz and 6 ARM A55 processors clocked at 2.0 GHz. It also includes an IMG PowerVR GM 9446 GPU for handling the graphics. It also generates super fast 1127GMACs which are claimed to deliver 4.6 times better performance than the earlier P60 or P70.

The Helio P90 can support up to 8GB of LPDDR4x storage clocked which can be clocked up to 1866 MHz. MediaTek’s CorePilot program helps in delivering sustained peak performance with longer battery life and low operating temperature. It can support a single camera with resolution up to 48MP or a dual camera array with 24MP + 16MP resolution. It even has ultra slow-motion video capture support at 480fps.

This new chipset supports Dual 4G VoLTE making it very useful in the Indian context. On the AI front, this SoC brings in new features such as 5-person human pose tracking, Full body avatar AR, 3D pose tracking and multiple objects and scene identification. It now supports Google Lens and comes with more secure and accurate facial recognition.
