Infinix confirms first Helio G99 phone

Sagar, 07 June 2022

Infinix has announced that it will be the first to launch a smartphone powered by the Helio G99 SoC, introduced last month by MediaTek alongside the Dimensity 930 and Dimensity 1050.

Infinix didn't divulge anything about the world's first Helio G99-powered smartphone but confirmed that it will be a part of the Note 12 series.

The Helio G99 is based on TSMC's 6nm process and consists of 2x Cortex-A76 cores clocked up to 2.2GHz and 6x Cortex A-55 cores that can go up to 2GHz. It also has a Mali-G57 MC2 GPU to handle graphically intensive tasks, such as gaming and video editing.

The Helio G99 can support a maximum resolution of 108MP on a camera but doesn't come with 5G connectivity. You can check its specs below.

Snapdragon 680 exists; it captures worse, it performs worse, and to add rotten cherry on top, it uses ancient A73 cores. Yet it present inside a few >USD300 phones. At least the G99 has a relative strong foundation to lay on that is Helio G96, on ...

Do remind that the chip is based on G96 - and that chip uses a Mali-G57 MC2 GPU. Surely not as powerful, but sips less juice.

Much better if its MC4 like Dimensity 800 had. Will definitely become a true successor of the pretty decent G95.
