MediaTek unveils the 4G-only Helio G91 SoC

Ro, 28 February 2024

Without much fuss, MediaTek announced a new but somewhat familiar Helio G91 SoC designed for entry-level 4G smartphones. The G91 has mostly the same hardware as its Helio G88 and G85 siblings but offers an upgraded ISP.

MediaTek quietly releases the 4G-only Helio G91 SoC

All three aforementioned chips share the same CPU configuration - 2x Crotex A75 clocked at 2.0 GHz joined by 6x Cortex-A55 ticking at 1.8 GHz. The trio also share the same GPU - Mali-G52 MC2 clocked at 1.0 GHz. Of course, the same 12nm manufacturing process by TSMC is used too.

However, the newer G91 now supports up to 108MP sensors, which would make the chip a preferable choice by manufacturers looking to assemble a competitive budget solution in 2024. Last but not least, the G91 is a much newer chip that should get a few more years of support.
