MediaTek Introduces the Octa-Core Helio G85 Gaming Chipset Featuring a 1GHz GPU

MediaTek has just revealed its latest addition to the brand's Helio G family: the Helio G85 SoC will be joining the existing Helio G90 and G90T chipsets as a slightly lower-end entry.

The Helio G85 is an octa-core SoC featuring 2 ARM Cortex-A75 chips running at 2GHz and 6 Cortex-A55 processors running at 1.8GHz. It comes integrated with an ARM Mali-G52 GPU running at a peak frequency of 1GHz and uses MediaTek's HyperEngine technology to enhance gaming performance.

One thing to note is that the Helio G85 is not a 5G-enabled chipset - it only supports dual 4G SIM connectivity.

Smartphones powered by the G85 will enjoy support for multi cameras, including a mix of wide angle, macro, telescopic and sensor sizes up to 48MP. On top of that, it supports a variety of AI-driven features, such as Google Lens, smart photo albums, bokeh shot enhancements, and more.

No word yet on when these chips will make their way into devices, but expect to see them deployed on mid-ranged gadgets later this year or even next year. #mediatek #helioG85
