MediaTek launches a yet another mid-ranger, the Helio P95

mediatek launches midrange processor helio p95

MediaTek has just unveiled an upgrade to its Helio P90 processor, the MediaTek Helio P95. It still features the same APU 2.0 engine for AI accelerator but with this MediaTek claims it has a 10% performance improvement over its predecessor.

Earlier in July 2019, MediaTek had released its midrange gaming processor called G90T which was based on the latest Cortex A76 architecture. The high-performance cores were clocked at 2.05 GHz. Strangely, the new Helio P95 is based upon the older Cortex A-75 architecture but higher clock speed of 2.2 GHz. Both are based on the 12-nm process.

MediaTek is ahead in the 5G space with launch of its two new processors Dimensity 800 and Dimensity 1000 in 2019 with integrated 5G. With the Helio P95, MediaTek seems to be targeting budget gaming.

In Wireless Connectivity, it still has WiFi 5 or the 802.11 ac standard. It also includes Bluetooth 5.0. MediaTek Helio P95 has an integrated 4G LTE WorldMode modem with 4x4 MIMO, 3CA, and 256QAM. It can give more reliable connectivity performance even in densely populated spaces such as stadiums, busy shopping districts, offices or airports.

The GPU is an Imagination PowerVR GM 94446 that lacks speed-specs on its new OEM site page. However, it supports displays of up to 2520x1080 in resolution. The Helio P95 can run a single 64MP sensor or 24+16MP dual cameras. It has a triple image signal processor (ISP) that can handle up to 14-bit RAW, 10-bit YUV processing and AI camera enhancements. It also has an "AI-NR" low-light photography mode, 5-person human pose tracking, multiple object- and scene-identification and an AI depth engine.
