As part of the company’s latest 4G/LTE SoC solution, the Helio P95 has some impressive connection specifications:

Includes Wi-Fi 5 / Bluetooth 5.0, Cat 12 Downstream / Cat 13 Upstream Rate, 4 x 4 MIMO, VoLTE / ViLTE, Support for 71 Bands, and 4G Dual SIM Cards.

On the CPU side, the Helio P95 uses a combination of 2 x Cortex-A75 (2.2GHz) plus 6 x Cortex-A55 (2.0GHz) cores.

On the GPU side, the SoC integrates the Imagination PowerVR GM 94446 (specific parameters are not available for use) and can be paired with a 2520 x 1080 display.

With an AI benchmark performance that’s up about 10 percent from the previous generation, the APU 2.0 is a bit out of date as Wi-Fi 6 and 5G become more popular in 2020.

In terms of images, the Helio P95 supports 64MP master / 24MP plus 16MP dual cameras, and the triple image processor (ISP) handles 14-bit RAW and AI camera enhancements.

These include AI-NR low-light photography mode, 5-person pose tracking, multi-object and scene recognition, and aI depth engine.

On the gaming side, the Helio P95 has mediatek HyperEngine acceleration engine that reduces delays in GPU rendering to display paths by up to 60%, improves power efficiency when playing, CPU/GPU/RAM management, and increased base station connectivity.

Unfortunately, no OEMs have yet announced the introduction of new smartphones based on the MTK Helio P95 platform solution.
