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.
