MediaTek Announces Helio P90 SoC – an AI Powerhouse for a New Level of AI Experiences
MediaTek today announced the launch of the Helio P90 system-on-chip (SoC), which features APU 2.0, its new generation AI architecture for a great AI processing boost. With an impressive industry leading 1127 GMACs (2.25TOPs) performance, the Helio P90 boasts flagship device level AI power. The octa-core Helio P90 is designed with two Arm A75 processors operating at up to 2.2GHz and six A55 processors operating at up to 2.0GHz. It packs an Imagination Technologies PowerVR GM 9446 GPU. MediaTek’s newest CorePilot technology also ensures processing is done in the most efficient way across its cores.
The Helio P90 built-in processing unit – APU 2.0 – a leading fusion AI architecture designed by MediaTek can deliver a new level of AI experiences that are 4X more powerful than the Helio P70 and Helio P60 chipsets. The Helio P90 is an AI processing powerhouse with ultra-fast performance and a host of AI-powered imaging improvements. The Helio P90 will reset consumer expectations of what a smartphone can do, and usher in a new era of super high-resolution smartphone photography to the market.
With its powerful AI engine, the MediaTek Helio P90 supports faster, complex and more dynamic AI experiences such as human pose detection which can track and analyze body movements. It also supports Google Lens, deep-learning facial detection, real-time beautification, object and scene identification, artificial reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) acceleration, plus other real-time enhancements for photos and videos.
MediaTek Helio P90 can capture the best pictures ever with support for a supersized 48MP camera or 24+16 MP dual cameras, bringing consumers the highest resolution advanced smartphone photography. Users can capture at 48MP with up to 30 frames per second (FPS) with zero shutter delay, or enjoy super slow-motion at 480FPS in HD to capture every moment.
The new ISP AI engine, specially designed to provide AI camera experiences, can accurately detect faces and scenes in real-time under low light and motion conditions, making a great shot easier than ever for any user.The Helio P90 supports dual SIM dual VoLTE 4G LTE WorldMode with a fast Cat-12 (DL) / Cat-13 (UL) 4G LTE modem. 4×4 MIMO and 256QAM provided better data throughput in highly populated areas. It also supports 2×2 802.11ac and Bluetooth 5.0. The Helio P90 is expected to be available globally in consumer devices starting in Q1 2019.
