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.

Sort by:

"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.

The big cores in 675 is better than G70 (A76 vs A75). I even doubt the GPU would be faster than the ones in SD670. Like someone have said, G70 is like P65, which I don't think is faster than SD670. It is better than something below SD670 tho.

Buying one of these gayming phones is like throwing your money on an iPhone. It is more marketing than anything else. If you want to play the way its meant to, buy a PC or a Console. Everything else is not worth it, be it either gameplay quality or catalog

Galactic, 14 Jan 2020So, Helio G70=Helio P65?I compared them both but didn't find any difference. perhaps the G70 is a re-branded P65 or something? However, I think they both would perform pretty much the same.
Helio P65 scored around 180K in AnTuTu v8.
And when it comes to the Geekbench v4, it scored around 1800 (Single-core) and 6000 (Multi-core).
So we can safely expect similar results for the G70. And not to forget that it's going to be used in $140 phones. Great!

Mali G52 isn't that bad. 4 core built is good enough to compete with SD 675

This is next chipset for redmi 9. It's great and can handle everything. Experience will be fluid. Sd 439 can't compare with this. This can compare with sd 665. I want to se dimensity 1000 in next redmi note 9 pro and dimensity 800 in redmi note 8. Sd losing market share in mid-range phones!!!

HELIO G70 (12nm)
two Cortex-A75 cores at 2GHz, plus six A55 cores

SNAPDRAGON 670 (10nm)
(2x2.0 GHz 360 Gold & 6x1.7 GHz Kryo 360 Silver)

too close to sd670

So, Helio G70=Helio P65?

Helio p65 is that you?

It appears to be just a rebrand of Helio P65, unless I am missing something?

So what's a gaming phone? My 2 years old flagship can run all games from play store. Is it also gaming phone? Or those "gaming phones" has some special games available?

It has excatly the same specs of Helio P65 which scored around 180,000 in AnTuTu v8.
And Redmi 9 is going to pack the Helio G70 which is WAY better than the SD439 used in Redmi 8 and 8A.
