Recently MediaTek launched a new chipset known as the Helio G95 that is specifically focused on gaming. It’s a budget game-centric chipset with 8% better GPU performance than the previous G90T which makes the G95 superior. Its a mid-range processor that has almost all the features of G90T but with a small change in GPU. The company claims that it is the most powerful 4G chipset for smartphones. Until now, there are a few smartphones that come with the new Helio G95. We will talk about that later but first, let’s look at the amazing features of the G95 chipset.
MediaTek Helio G95 SoC Features
The Helio G95 is the new offering from the Taiwan company which is built on 12nm process technology by TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company). It is an Octa-core processor with two ARM Cortex-A76 cores with a clock speed up to 2.05GHz and six pieces of Cortex-A55 operating up to 2GHz.
For the memory part, it can support up to 2x LPDDR4x which is clocked up to 2133MHz and it has the RAM size capacity up to 10GB. The internal storage is paired with eMMC 5.1 and UFS 2.1.
The chipset supports ARM Mali G76 3EEMC4 which is an overclocked version of the GPU from the G90T. Helio G95 has the GPU clock speed of 900MHz while the G90T has the clock speed of 800MHz. Since there is a slight performance difference theoretically so the G95 has 5% more in CPU benchmarks (Antutu) and up to 8% more in GPU benchmarks (Manhattan 3.0) compared to the G90T benchmarks.
For the cameras, the G95 can support up to 64MP multi-camera setup with the option to record 4K videos @ 30fps. The CPU is capable to handle Full HD+ display with a refresh rate of 90Hz. From the connectivity point of view, it supports Dual 4G VoLTE, ViLTE, VoWifi, and also supports Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, Glonass, Beidou, Galileo as well as FM radio.
Moreover, the chipset comes with HyperEngine gaming technology which has the feature of networking, rapid response, picture quality, and resource management engines for seamless gameplay and highly responsive user experience. According to the company, the technology will provide better connectivity by enabling both WiFi and 4G LTE together which in turn will provide lag-free smooth gameplay.

On the front, the Realme 7 comes with a 16MP Sony IMX471 sensor that has an f/2.0 lens. Last but not least, the device boasts a 5000 mAh battery with 30W Dart charging.
MediaTek has been manufacturing mobile SoCs for a long time now and recently they too joined in on the 5G venture that everyone is following. In the last two years, MediaTek has been mainly about mid-tier processors, the Helio P and G series. But recently in the latter half of 2019, MediaTek got in the premium flagship segment and launch their first take on a 5G chip, the Dimensity 1000. This is the first in its series but we can surely hope to see the series continue in the coming years.
Just a few weeks after the release of Dimensity 1000, we have the MediaTek’s Dimensity 800 and 800U, which is a mid-range 5G processor. As of now, we have seen only a few phones officially with these new 5G processors, but there are rumours about a couple of 800U phones that will be announced in India soon. How does the Dimensity 800/800U processor stack up? What are these devices? Let’s find out.
MediaTek Dimensity 800 & 800U Detailed Specifications
The Dimensity 800 falls just beneath the Dimensity 1000 and is a worthy competitor to the more famous Snapdragon 765G/765. The Dimensity 800 is built on 7nm manufacturing process and comes with an integrated 5G modem. In terms of CPU, we get four high-performance Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2GHz and four power-efficient Cortex-A55 cores also clocked at 2GHz. The use of four high-performance cores differentiates it from the 765 in a significant way as it will improve the apps opening and launch times. For GPU, we get the Mali-G57MC4, a four-core variant of the Mali-G57, which stacks up equally against the 765G’s Adreno 620 GPU. For AI, MediaTek went with four cores consisting of three different types of cores which give the Dimensity 800 APU an achievement of 2.4 TOPs.
Moving on to the optics aspect, we have support for up to 64MP, or a dual-camera setup of 32MP+16MP. The ISP built into this processor also comes with a bunch of AI improvements, which includes, AI autofocus, autoexposure, auto white balance, noise reduction, high dynamic range (AI HDR), and dedicated facial detection hardware. However, in the display front, the Dimensity 800 falls just a bit short of the Snapdragon 765. Surely, it supports FHD+ resolution along with a refresh rate of 90Hz, which is industry-leading, but the 765 goes a step ahead by enabling support for up to 120Hz.
Dimensity 800U is a slightly tweaked version of 800 with overclocked CPU cores. It packs Dual 5G SIM support and integrated 5G modem. You can see their difference in the below table.
