The MediaTek Helio P70 is not much different from the P60. The chipset is still developed by TSMC through 12nm FinFET technology. Also noteworthy are the Cortex-A73 and Cortex A53 cores in the same 4 + 4 array and the Mali-G72 ARM graphics card. What changed was the speed of the clock. More specifically we speak of the 2.0 GHz for the A53 cores.
The graphics card also operates at a higher speed of 900MHz. MediaTek claims that the higher clock speed results in a 13% increase in performance. However, the data processing unit (APU) also brought improvements of 10 to 30% compared to the Helio P60.
At autonomy level and when compared to the P60, the Mediatek Helio P70 uses 35% less power and provides 7% greater performance in games that require more processing power.
The chipset supports a single 32MP camera or 24 + 16MP pairs. Also worth noting is a new camera system that guarantees a 3x increase in depth mapping performance.
The MediaTek Helio P70 supports up to 8 GB of LPDDR4X memory and 4 GB of LPDDR3 RAM. Also noteworthy is the support for eMMC 5.1 and UFS 2.1 storage. Unfortunately, Bluetooth support is still 4.2 (LE).
According to Roland Quandt, the popular leakster, the Helio P70 will start appearing on the devices as early as next month.
While the Helio P60 was MediaTek’s response to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, the Helio P70 will be the Snapdragon 710 fighter. We remind you that earlier this year, the unannounced Helio P70 SoC appeared on AnTuTu, registering a score of 156,906 points.
