MediaTek Helio G96 and G88: New chips introduced for affordable Chinese smartphones

Elizabeth Harper

**MediaTek primarily supplies affordable smartphones with the corresponding chips. Now they are being equipped with modern features.**

The semiconductor manufacturer MediaTek has never had it easy in the shadow of Qualcomm. In comparisons, the chips simply couldn’t keep up with the features and performance of the Snapdragons. In addition, there were difficulties with the update policy. But that has changed recently. On the one hand, there is the Dimensity series, which includes chips for flagship devices. These are not mainstream devices, but rather underdogs like the Oppo Reno5 Pro, Realme X7 Pro, or Redmi K30 Ultra. However, flagship in the case of MediaTek smartphones does not mean exorbitant prices: the smartphones are mainly in the range of around 400 euros. ## Helio chip with support for 120Hz display and 108MP camera

The Helio family has been around longer than the Dimensity series, and it is now being expanded with two chips: Helio G96 and Helio G88. They bring current technologies such as high-resolution cameras and higher screen refresh rates to entry-level and mid-range smartphones.

Especially the G96 could meet the needs of devices like the Xiaomi Mi 11 with its specifications supporting 120Hz and a 108MP camera. However, 5G is missing. “With the launch of Helio G96 and Helio G88, MediaTek is expanding its position as the leading innovator for mobile chips and delivering new SoCs that enhance the display and photography experience for the mainstream market,” said a MediaTek representative.
