MediaTek Helio G91


Mediatek just dropped the curtain on its latest Helio G91 SoC for entry-level 4G smartphones, and it’s bringing some cool upgrades without making a big fuss. The G91 packs a familiar punch, sharing hardware similarities with its G88 and G85 siblings but kicking things up a notch with an upgraded ISP.

Under the hood, the G91 boasts an octa-core CPU setup, featuring two powerful Cortex-A75 cores clocking at 2.0GHz for heavy tasks and six Cortex-A55 cores at 1.8GHz for efficiency. This keeps the performance-power balance, similar to the G88. The SoC supports up to 8GB LPDDR4x memory and eMMC 5.1 storage.

Now, devices powered by this chip can harness the power of 108MP sensors, promising sharper and more detailed photos in all lighting situations. The in-sensor zoom, along with 2.0um pixel binning, enhances low-light performance and delivers top-notch portrait shots. MediaTek also throws in hardware accelerators for cool features like dual camera bokeh and electronic image stabilization.

But that’s not all! The G91 doesn’t skimp on location tracking, even in GPS-deprived areas, thanks to its inertial navigation engine. Plus, it’s got voice wakeup for hands-free control, adding a layer of safety and convenience.

Gamers, rejoice! The G91 comes with MediaTek’s HyperEngine gaming tech, ensuring smooth gameplay by tweaking CPU, GPU, and memory performance in real-time. And if you’re into connectivity, the chipset supports dual 4G VoLTE and Wi-Fi 5.
