In order to give device makers more options in designing smartphones that deliver an elite gaming experience, MediaTek has launched its Helio G85 mobile gaming-focused chipset. The newest addition to the Gaming G Series family packs a 1GHz GPU and HyperEngine enhancements.
In addition to its HyperEngine technology, MediaTek’s Helio G85 brings incredible AI camera features for advanced imaging, integrated voice wake-up (VoW) to minimize power use, inertial navigation for more accurate location information and dual-4G SIM capabilities for reliable connectivity. As far as MediaTek’s HyperEngine is concerned, it combines various technologies to enhance the overall gaming experience by enabling sustained performance and longer gameplay.
“The Helio G85 delivers a combination of impressive performance, minimal power consumption and a range of other gaming enhancements so users can enjoy fast and smooth gameplay,” said Yenchi Lee, Assistant General Manager of MediaTek’s wireless business unit.
Looking at the specifications of MediaTek Helio G85, the chipset is packed with an Arm Mali-G52 GPU with a peak of 1GHz. Moreover, the Helio G85 secured a Manhattan benchmark score up to 25fps for providing a seemless gaming experience. Additionally, MediaTek mentioned that the chipset’s octa-core CPU comes fitted with two powerful Arm Cortex-A75 processors that operate at up to 2GHz and six Cortex-A55 processors operating at up to 1.8GHz.
In addition to this, MediaTek Helio G85’s connectivity enhancements deliver faster response times between the smartphone and cell tower for more reliable connectivity. Users can simply defer calls while gaming without the data connection dropping.
Let’s take a closer look at the additional features of MediaTek Helio G85 chipset:
