MediaTek has announced a new entry-level chipset. It is the MediaTek Helio G36. The latest processor from the Taiwanese semiconductor company is the successor to the Helio G35. The new Helio G36 is said to power budget gaming phones in India. It has an 100MHz slower clock speed than the Helio G37 but apart from that there are no major differences. Read on to know the technical specifications of the processor.
The MediaTek Helio G36 is based on TSMC’s 12nm process. It has eight Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.2GHz. There is an IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU onboard. The chipset has MediaTek HyperEngine 2.0 Lite gaming technologies. The Resource Management Engine 2.0 ensures sustained performance with dynamic management of GPU, CPU, and memory whereas the Networking Engine 2.0 enables faster response and better connectivity for uninterrupted services.
The MediaTek Helio G36 supports FHD+ displays with a 90Hz refresh rate for smooth scrolling and gaming. It supports dual cameras of two 13MP lenses or up to 50MP single sensors along with hardware-based imaging features like bokeh effects, MEMA 3DNR, multi-frame noise reduction, and more. The system-on-chip will enable devices to shoot 1080p videos at 30fps.
On the connectivity front, the MediaTek Helio G36 has dual 4G VoLTE support along with integrated dual-band WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, Galileo, GLONASS, and GPS.
Since the Helio G36 is an entry-level chipset, we can expect it to power phones under Rs 10,000 price bracket. We should know more details soon about the chipset’s availability and the smartphone brands that utilise it.
