Following the Helio G90/G70, MediaTek recently launched the G80 mid-order chip. Like the G70, the G80 is based on a 12nm process and is designed to be an 8 core. The G80 is designed with two plus six “Big.Little” and the large core is two Cortex A75s with a frequency of 2GHz, and the small core is 6 A55s with a frequency of 1.8GHz. GPU-matched Mali-G52 MC2, frequency 950MHz, and the entire chip is similar to the SnapDragon710.
In addition to supporting up to 8GB of LPDDR4X memory, the Helio G80 also features a “HyperEngine” game engine, one of which is the intelligent switch between LTE and Wi-Fi when monitoring slow internet connections.
In addition, the G80 also supports voice wake-up, multi-camera, hardware-level electronic stabilization, rolling compensation, and so on, but does not integrate independent APU (AI unit) as the G90.
MediaTek said the G70/G80 phone would be the first to go on sale in India as soon as this month, further lowering the threshold for so-called gaming phones, with Realme C3 confirming the helio G70.
