MediaTek unveils Helio G70 chipset for entry-level gaming phones

14 January 2020
The Mali-G52 GPU is no match for the G72 used in the Helio G90, so this chip targets phones costing $150 or so.

As for now, Mediatek Helio series is killing it when it comes to high performance at a mid range price

The only info we know is it's "better" than SD 765G (I never trust company benchmark anyway, just taking it with grain and salt)

This chipset appears to be a renamed Helio P65

This chipset is for entry-level gaming phones. Can the cost be less than 10k for these Mediatek chipsets?

We need mediatek dimensity1000 phone.

Galactic, 15 Jan 2020It has 2 cores, just like Helio P65The Mali G522EEMC4 is basically a new way of saying G52MP4. It performs on par with G72MP3 (sometimes slightly better). There are two cores with 2 execution engines per core, thus making it equivalent to MP4 in old naming scheme.

gg, 15 Jan 2020Tesla supports coreboot now, but is MediaTek still in the dark ... moreYeah, they still, no matter what people say that they release their code, OEMs code isn't the same that the Mediatek's Code.

Tech Jesus, 15 Jan 2020Going to be way better than Snapdragon garbage processor 600 seriesLol keep dreaming

Tesla supports coreboot now, but is MediaTek still in the dark ages when comes to open source ?

Anonymous, 14 Jan 2020I compared them both but didn't find any difference. perhaps the... moreYes,you're right. Perhaps we aren't going to see an 150$ phone with ancient and slower octa-core A53 cpu anymore

  • Magnaroader

So are we ever going to see any of these budget gaming phones outside of China?
I'd personally buy a G90 or G70 GT handset just for gaming as I'd rather use a dedicated phone for games and calls separate.

Hm... interesting...

Morsel, 14 Jan 2020I'm afraid this one(g70) might have only 2 core.It has 2 cores, just like Helio P65

Going to be way better than Snapdragon garbage processor 600 series

Galactic, 14 Jan 2020So, Helio G70=Helio P65?Yep, the G70 is basically the P65 in a nutshell. I dunno what's the point of re-releasing nearly identical hardware with a completely different market segmentation. Prove us wrong, MediaTek.

Unpopular opinion but they should keep the phones that release with this chipset

At 720p max screen resolution for best graphics performance

Make it IPS too because 720p ipS and 1080p pentile oled are virtually equal in sharpness

He is helio p65, but his name has been changed
And It is better than helio p70 in everything

Morsel, 14 Jan 2020I'm afraid this one(g70) might have only 2 core.Yeah, I responded the comment before reading the article thinking that his word was a fact, in that case only wait to see.

"entry level gaming phones" mediatek basically invented a new concept. Gaming phones used to be premium and high end. But now a new concept, new market. Great idea. Hope to see more redmi note 8 pro like phones in the future.
