15 July 2021
The two are not strict upgrades over the G95 and G85, but they do have better display and camera support.

Anonymous 2.0, 18 Jul 2021Is it power hungry or efficient? 😂helio g96 is more efficient than helio g90t and g95 because it has weaker gpu. But not as efficient as snapdragon

All the Helio lineup should have supported UFS 2.2 also. Dimensity should be WiFi 6 and UFS 3.1. The Helio G96 should have had 3 or 4 G57 cores and G88 2 G57 cores.

gd7543yd, 16 Jul 2021forget already about Helio series, it's energy ineffic... moreFunny story there is only ONE efficient SoC from the Helio G series and is the Helio G90 and 95.

Then Mediatek KILLED the line HARD with those abominations.

So... they downgraded it's specs and "upgraded" it's marketing specs? Don't buy a phone with a "108MP camera" and "120Hz display" if it phone can't process all those pixels and actually run most apps at that framerate.

it's not highend!

If MediaTek engineers were clever they would have made the G96 with 4 Mali G57 cores and G88 with 2 Mali G57 cores. UFS 2.2 should have been standard for both as well as Bluetooth 5.2

Anonymous, 16 Jul 2021ever heard about redmi note 8 , realme 6?Yes, Realme 6 having trashy video quality and bad dynamic range in photos. Redmi Note 8 2021 is worse in terms of video quality and video compared to original Redmi Note 8 with Snapdragon.

Even S21 Ultra with ufs 3.1 doesn't surpass 1000mbps write speeds.
All flagships with ufs 3.1 reach 700-900mbps sequential write speed.
The Chinese brands like Vivo and others give highest scores among ufs 3.1 storage paired with flagship soc.

What nanometer (nm) is this chipset?

In 2021 Q3, G96 downgrade GPU & G88 emcc memomry(no ufs). What a logic Mediatek!

  • gd7543yd

forget already about Helio series, it's energy inefficient, overheating and has bad image processing, smartphones with Helio G and P SoC's have bad dynamic range in photos and worse video quality if you compare them to smartphones with Qualcomm chips in the same price range. Redmi Note 8/8T with Snapdragon 665 does better photos and videos than Redmi Note 9 with G85
