MediaTek Helio G90 Series

​MediaTek has built not just a chip, but a complete platform of hardware and software enhancements that excels at smartphone gaming


MediaTek Helio G90 Series

Whether your go-to is Fornite, PUBG, KOG or other top titles, our exclusive HyperEngine game technology means you get fast and smooth action in your favorite games, through intelligent networking, rapid touchscreens and vivid visuals - whole-device enhancements - that ensure your smartphone always keeps up with you.

Inside, an upgraded octa-core CPU boosts speeds up to 2.05GHz. Using a mix of the latest Arm Cortex-A76 and Cortex-A55 in combination with a large L3 cache, the G90 series increases multi-threaded performance up to 9%1 beyond direct competitors.

With speeds up to 800MHz, the latest Arm Mali-G76 3EEMC4 GPU can play Fortnite and PUBG incredibly smoothly, blazing through Manhattan benchmark up to 26%1 faster versus direct competitors.

Up to 10GB of LPDDR4x at 2133MHz1 (4266MHz1 effective) provides generous bandwidth and memory capacity, while the latest UFS 2.1 storage yields ultra-fast data-streaming.

Up to 64MP AI-Camera and Multi-Camera Framework

The G90 series is not just for gamers, it’s is the first chip to bring the latest 64MP1 4-cell sensor cameras into your hand, so you can capture incredibly detailed photos or use our quad-pixel technology to take night-shots with the best low-light performance ever. You’ll find new smartphones with up to four cameras as our multi-camera framework allows brands to integrate a variety of lens and sensor options, whether it’s anything between ultra-wide to telescopic or a dedicated sub-camera for depth-mapping or HDR, allowing you to find the ideal mix in a smartphone.

The triple-ISP design optimizes power and performance in all photographic modes, while an integrated hardware depth engine provides smooth, real-time bokeh previews for the highest quality Portraits. Video can be captured at ultra-fast 240 FPS with efficient HEVC encoding.

Through a mix of the G90’s 2X APU hardware and its powerful CPU and GPU cores there’s a total of 1TMACs1 of AI performance for smartphone brands to tap into. Users can enjoy incredibly fast AI-camera applications, OS enhancements and AI-apps with ease and efficiency.

World’s First Dual ‘Wake-up Word’ Support

As a variety of virtual assistants support our daily lives in different ways. The G90 series1 can listen for more than one trigger word that wakes up virtual assistants such as Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa or other localized services.

Fully integrated into its design, brands get a power and cost-optimized system that’s easy to integrate and offers the greater consumer choice.

Fast 4G LTE modem with Dual 4G SIM

MediaTek G90 series integrates a Cat-12 4G LTE WorldMode modem with 3x CA and 4x4 MIMO and 256QAM. This provides more reliable connectivity performance even in densely populated spaces such as stadiums, busy shopping districts, offices or airports.

Continuing our DSDS (dual SIM) leadership, essential dual 4G VoLTE and 4G data means a seamless user experience from either data connection, while VoLTE and ViLTE services provide the best possible call and live video experience, with faster call setup time noticeably better sound quality.

Advanced cellular features such as IMS (VoLTE\ViLTE\VoWi-Fi), which is now supported by over 175 cellular operators worldwide, and other standards include global eMBMS, HPUE and Band 71 support in North America.
