MediaTek Intros Chip for Gaming Phones
The MediaTek Helio G90T is a new chipset optimized for gaming phones. It includes several unique features to ensure faster, uninterrupted data connections, such as dual simultaneous Wi-Fi connections. It's also optimized to reduce touch response time. It supports Cat. 12 LTE, HDR10, cameras up to 64 megapixel powered by triple ISPs, 240 fps video capture, and dual wake words. The octa-core CPU includes two Cortex A76 cores plus six A55 cores running at up to 2.05 GHz. The GPU is based on ARM Mali-G76. It supports up to 10 GB of LPDDR4x RAM and UFS 2.1 storage. The new G90 series includes two chips: the G90 and G90T. The higher-end G90T supports the fastest CPU and GPU clock speeds, and display refresh rates up to 90 Hz. The slightly lower-end G90 supports cameras up 48 megapixel and a single wake word. The first phones with a G90-series chip are expected to be Xiaomi phones shipping in India and China in the 4th quarter.
