MediaTek, the famous chipset brand has announced the new mid-range 4G processor for the year 2022, the Helio G99 alongside the Dimensity 930 5G and the Dimensity 1050 5G chipsets. The Helio G99 chip is a successor to the previously launched Helio G96, which we have seen in many mid-range smartphones till now. Let’s discuss the Helio G99 processor.

This Helio 99 has upgraded the Helio 4G series because the G99 uses TSMC N6 (6nm-class) chip production method, enabling it to be exceptionally power efficient and providing device creators with new possibilities to make gaming smartphones that last longer than ever. This is actually the major change in this G99 chipset against the 12nm process of the G96. This modification is expected to resolve the heating and energy consumption problems and provide a stable performance while gaming. MediaTek claims that the Helio G99 brings 30 percent energy savings during gaming compared to the Helio G96

The Helio G99 SoC by MediaTek carries over the identical CPU core configuration as the chip Helio G96, comprising 2 ARM Cortex A76 cores and 6 ARM Cortex A55 efficiency cores. The performance cores, ARM Cortex A76, operate at a higher clock speed of approx 2.2GHz as opposed to the 2.05GHz on the Helio G96.

Further, Helio G99 by MediaTek can feature Full HD plus screen displays with resolutions of 2520 x 1080 pixels and also a 120Hz refresh rate for smooth scrolling. Also, it can sustain 2 LPDDR4x RAM modules clocked up to 2133MHz and boasts of eMMC 5.1 and the UFS 2.2 storage.

Additionally, in terms of the cameras, this processor can support up to a 108-MP lens and shoot 2K videos at 30fps, FHD videos at 60fps, and also HD videos at 120fps. Moving forward, this processor arrives loaded with camera features such as Rolling Shutter Compensation engine, Hardware Warping Engine, Single-Cam/Dual-Cam Bokeh, AI Face Detection, AINR, MEMA 3DNR, HW depth engine, and Multi-Frame Noise reduction.

Now, I would also like to mention that this chipset Helio G99 also comes with MediaTek HyperEngine 2.0 Lite gaming technologies that facilitate an intelligent, dynamic administration of CPU, GPU and memory as per the active measurements of power, thermal and gameplay factors.

Furthermore, connectivity specs incorporate 4G Carrier Aggregation (CA), Dual 4G VoLTE (DSDS), 4G FDD / TDD, Cat-13 DL, HSPA +, 4X4 MIMO, CDMA2000 1x/EVDO Rev. A (SRLTE), Bluetooth 5.2, and more.

The list of the advantages of this Helio G99 goes on. And, we can expect smartphones from the brand like Xiaomi, Infinix, Realme, Vivo, POCO, and likes to comes with the MediaTek Helio G99 from the month of July 2022 onwards.
