The Helio P90 processor was introduced about two weeks ago by the Taiwan-based Asian manufacturer, MediaTek. In practice, we have here a chipset capable of facing/putting itself as a viable alternative to the Snapdragon 710 from North American Qualcomm.
Firstly, being a new processor, we still do not have a smartphone in the market equipped with this “heart”. However, we already have the first indicators/benchmarks on the AnTuTu platform that show us some of its potential.
However, we already have some rumors that suggest the OPPO R19 as the first smartphone to choose the Helio P90. The new bet of MediaTek that should integrate several devices already from 2019 but of course, for now, the “engine” has to prove its value.
The MediaTek Helio P90 has already debuted at AnTuTu
So that’s exactly where the new AnTuTu score comes in, putting it face-to-face with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710. By the way, we can see (by the score) that the new Helio P90 from MediaTek has a good score. Rivalizing perfectly with the also recent Snapdragon 710 that we have already known on the previous occasion . Next, we can see the score of an Android smartphone that was tested on the above-mentioned platform. We have here a device with relatively modern technical characteristics, suitable for the mid-high-end segment.
At the technical level, we can see the indication of the operating system Android Pie (9.0), soon in the first place. Following is the model of the processor, the Helio P90 from MediaTek as well as the graphics of the chipset in question.
Secondly, we have the indication of 6GB of RAM as well as a total of 128GB of internal storage. Thirdly we have the display resolution – Ful-HD + – therefore with 1080 x 2160 pixels.
What are the features of the MediaTek Helio P90?
In short, for now this is just a test device, a prototype used to test the true “power” of the MediaTek Helio P90. Something that translates into a general score of 162861 points on the above-mentioned platform.
At the level of specifications, the Helio P90 uses, in the first place, a lithograph of 12nm in its design. Secondly, we have a total of 8 processing cores ( octa-core ) with a maximum frequency of 2.2Ghz.
In short, a good rival for the Snapdragon 710 from Qualcomm
The processor itself is composed of 2 high performance cores – Cortex A75 at 2.2 GHz. We also have 6 more generic cores with a maximum frequency of 2.0Ghz – Cortex A55. We also have a PowerVR GM 9446 graphics that supports a Full-HD + (1080 x 2520 pixels) maximum resolution.
In short, we actually have a feature alignment quite similar to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710. Therefore in 2019 we will have two amazing processors to “flood” the market / mid-range segment.
