Mediatek Helio P65 SoC launched with support for 48 MP camera
The company MediaTek has expanded the range of portfolio, announcing the Helio P65 chipset, which will be used in mid-range smartphones. The new Helio P65 chipset provides twice the performance compared to its predecessor Helio P60.
The Helio P65’s CPU is designed with an eight-core architecture and integrates two ARM Cortex-A75 cores up to 2GHz. The rest is the Cortex-A55 core with a frequency of 1.7GHz. The eight-core cluster shares a large L3 cache. The GPU is ARM Mail-G52, and the overall performance is improved by 25%.
For graphics processing an integrated accelerator ARM Mali G52 is used. The maximum frequency of the graphic unit is 820 MHz.
The processor allows the use of display with a resolution of up to 2520 × 1080 pixels. It can support cameras with a resolution of up to 48 megapixels, as well as dual cameras in a configuration of 16 MP+ 16 MP.
The Helio P65 platform supports LPDDR3 and LPDDR4x RAM, as well as flash drives of the eMMC 5.1 standard.
Among other things, wireless support of Wi-Fi 5 (802.11a / b / g / n / ac) and Bluetooth 5.0, FM radio, satellite navigation systems Beidou, Galileo, GLONASS and GPS, as well as fourth-generation mobile communication LTE Cat -7 DL / Cat-13 UL are supported.
Mass production of the processor Helio P65 has already begun. The first smartphones based on it are likely to debut in the third quarter of this year.
