MediaTek Helio G95 features
MediaTek's new processor comes with support for dual wake-up word. It claims Wi-Fi and LTE concurrency triggers within 13 milliseconds. It said the new chip achieved a 5% higher score on AnTuTu benchmark in comparison with G90T. It recorded a similar 8% surge in GPU Manhattan 3.0 benchmark. Other highlights of the chip include HDR10 standard display, which can be enhanced to approach HDR10+ quality in real-time.
MediaTek Helio G95 comes with Arm Cortex-A76 CPUs operating up to 2.05GHz, plus six Cortex-A55 CPUs, with an upgraded ARM Mali-g76 MC4, operating at up to 900 MHz for improved single and multicore performance.
The chip is also equipped with an ultra-low-power, always-on DSP that supports dual wakeup word detection. The onboard ultra-low-power DSP helps reduce the power consumption of applications such as the always-on Google Assistant and supports multiple keyword triggers and virtual assistants.
On multi-camera support, MediaTek said that the chip enables devices featuring up to 64MP camera, with quad-pixel technology for better low-light results during night shots. It also enables depth engines for real-time portrait bokeh, AI-FD (Fast & precise AI face detection engine), MFNR, Warping, 3DNR, video encoding and decoding at 4K 30fps, along with integrated APU for AI camera enhancement.
