MediaTek is increasing its “Brand-new Premium” variety of mobile application chipsets — scattered above the mid-range, but underneath the brand-new $1,000 benchmark of flagships — with the appearance of the Helio P70.

However, it is utilizing former ARM Cortex core designs, the P70 sets many transistors down with a 12nm die and elevates the speed up: quad A73 units at a maximum of 2.1GHz and quad A53 units with a top of 2GHz. The stock Mali-G72 MP3 is incorporated as well as a dual-core artificial intelligence processing unit — the prominent feature it powers is the advanced streaming video encoder. Optimizations for several games and have also generated a 7 percent performance boost with a 35 percent drop in power use versus the Helio P60.

The combined modem brings up to 300Mbps downlink and 150Mbps uplink with assistance for Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2. It works with the latest highlighted network technologies such as 600MHz support for T-Mobile and HPUE for Sprint.

The Image Signal Processor can manage a single 32-megapixel camera or a dual-system composed of a 24-megapixel sensor and a 16-megapixel sensor. Dual assistive engines serve electronic image stabilization for video recording and contrast blow-out relief while taking load and power consumption off the core ISP.
