MediaTek Helio G96

Incredible 120Hz FullHD+ Displays

120Hz displays are ideal for smartphones to offer premium everyday user experiences, with notably smoother scrolling of webpages and animations in apps. Device makers can build G96-powered smartphones with either LCD or AMOLED displays up to FullHD+ resolution.

Immense 108MP Main Camera

High-end 4G smartphones can feature an immense 108MP camera that can capture the most detailed images. In addition, brands can build smartphones with variety of multi-camera designs using various lens and sensor options, giving users the option of wide, macro, telephoto captures, or other photographic and video experiences. Premium noise reduction techniques (hardware-based 3DNR and MFNR) enable enhanced night-shot and ultra-low light capture performance. A dedicated AI facial detection engine ensures apps and security actions are both fast and secure. An HEVC encoding acceleration means capturing video uses less power, and the videos themselves take up less space.

Fast 4G LTE with Dual 4G SIM

A fast Cat-13 4G LTE WorldMode modem is integrated into the chip, offering key connectivity features such as 4x4 MIMO and 256QAM, providing reliable performance even in areas of high network traffic. Advanced cellular features such as global eMBMS, HPUE and global bands and IMS services are also supported.

Essential dual 4G SIM provides fast data services from either connection, offering a seamless user experience, while VoLTE and ViLTE services provide excellent call and live video experiences with faster call setup and noticeably better sound quality.
