MediaTek Helio P65 12nm Octa-core SoC announced with support for 48MP camera

    Introducing to you is a new SoC for mid-range Smartphones, MediaTek Helio P65 12nm Octa-core SoC with support for 48MP camera has been announced on Tuesday.

    Being the successor to the last year January’s MediaTek Helio P60 12nm Octa Core SoC with multi-core processing unit, the Helio P65 boasts of more advanced and improved features.

    The major feature over the previous generation is the valuable support for 48MP camera and better AI and gaming experience. Which is definitely awesome.

    Well, they are all just programmed to bring the best user experience to mid-range phones, and the octa-core Helio P65 brings a 100 percent boost in AI performance.

    In addition to that, it boasts of 30 percent improvement in AI-assisted camera tasks like scene recognition, scene detection, and application of bokeh effects.

    Aside from the 48-megapixel camera sensors support, advanced AI performance, the new SoC also brings amusing improvements to security features.

    In summary, the Helio P65 is completely built on the 12nm process and incorporates a pair of Arm Cortex-A75 CPUs operating up to 2.0GHz, plus six, Cortex-A55 processors in a single, octa-core cluster.

    While the gaming graphics of the new SoC are handled by the Mali-G52 2EEMC2 GPU with a maximum frequency of 820MHz. It can support display resolution of up to 2520 x 1080 resolution, up to 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and eMMC 5.1 storage.

    The new MediaTek Helio P65 SoC also provideds connectivity features such as Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, Beidou, Galileo, Glonass, GPS, LTE Cat-4, Cat-7 DL / Cat-13 UL with Carrier Aggregation.

    The new MediaTek SoC employs the company’s own CorePilot resource control system, which is claimed to deliver consistent performance while gaming.

    It supports a single 48MP, 4-cell camera, and large, dual camera systems up to 16+16MP for a wide/telephoto lens along with support for professional-grade bokeh effects, Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and Rolling Shutter Compensation (RSC) technology.

    With the new SoC, the maximum video recording capability is 2K at 30 fps and 1080P at 60 fps. It also claims to come with faster and improved facial recognition.

    The P65 also claims to builds in VoW (voice on wakeup) capability, optimizing platform size and power use. MediaTek has also separated the audio channels for voice commands and calls from media and games, allowing for respectively better quality.

    However, the new SoC isn’t far from our use, as Smartphones will start making use of the MediaTek Helio P65 starting from July. It is currently in mass production.
