MediaTek has once again enriched its product line. Today, it released the new Helio G80 platform. As you can guess, this time, the manufacturer came in with a mid-range SoC chip. It is reported that the mid-range G80 platform will be launched in the Indian market as soon as this month. But there are no guess which smartphone makers will be the first to power their products with this processor.
The Helio G80 is a small upgraded version of the G70. It is built with 12nm process and has an 8-core processor. The CPU part adopts the familiar 2 + 6 Big.little design. The large core provides the Cortex-A75 architecture and the highest clock frequency reached 2GHz. The small core provided six Cortex-A55 architecture, and the clock frequency reached 1.8GHz. The G80’s GPU uses Mali-G52 MP2. Although the overall performance is not great, it should be able to meet the needs of mainstream small games.
Also, the MediaTek Helio G80 supports up to 8GB of LPDDR4X memory, providing MediaTek’s own HyperEngine game engine, while injecting voice wake-up, multi-camera support, and electronic image stabilization. However, it may be to open up the difference from the G90. The G80 does not provide an independent APU architecture.
Smartphones equipped with Helio G80 platform will be listed in India as soon as this month. Prior to this, the Realme C3 has been confirmed to be the first to adopt G70 platform. So we wonder if Realme will become the first G80 manufacturer as well?
