Yesterday, MediaTek has announced the all-new G90 & G90T Soc’s here in India under the G series. The chipsets are designed for use in Mid-range gaming smartphones. These chipsets contain HyperEngine gaming technology by MediaTek. This tech consists of several features that are designed to boost the performance of smartphone games. The chipset is an octa-core CPU clocked at 2.05GHz, which includes the same ARM Cortex-A76 and A55 cores, same as the latest flagship chipset from Qualcomm and Huawei. The chipset is coupled with a Mali G76 GPU with clock speed up to 800MHz. It also supports up to 10GB of LPDDR4x RAM.

The company’s announcement suggests that they’re hoping their new chips will find a home in gaming-focused smartphones similar to the current devices out there. However, gaming phones like these have tended to use flagship processors from rival chipmaker Qualcomm in the past, while MediaTek’s chips tend to find a home in midrange and budget devices.

The chipsets are built on 12nm process. It can support up to 64MP camera sensors, as of now, Samsung GW1 is the only sensor which spots the same. The G90 and G90T are the first SoCs in MediaTek’s gaming-focused G-Series lineup. The chipsets support HDR10, and they also have an intelligent network prediction engine that MediaTek says can sense when Wi-Fi quality is degrading and automatically use an LTE connection as a backup. The chips also include a “rapid response engine” to make touchscreen controls feel more responsive. It spots L3 cache, 64MP single camera and multi-camera combinations, quad pixel technology for night shot mode, triple-ISP design and AI facial detection and the power to accelerate AI-camera applications.

At the event, MediaTek compares the Helio G90T with Snapdragon 730 and Snapdragon 730G SoCs. The chipmaker says that the Helio G90T clearly outshines the Qualcomm chipsets and also scores higher than the competition in AnTuTu (on paper, real-life scenarios may be different). With the GeekBench 4.1, the new Helio chipset offers 10 percent better results when compared to Snapdragon 730G and 9 percent more than Qualcomm Snapdragon 730.

At the launch event, Xiaomi India head and Global VP Manu Kumar Jain announced that Xiaomi will launch a new Helio G90T powered phone in India. Previously the brand launched the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A budget phones powered by Helio P22 and Helio A22 SoCs respectively in India last year, but this will be the first time the company is coming up with a phone powered by a top-end MediaTek chip. It had been only a few year’s since the ban of Xiaomi to use MediaTek chipset was lifted.

Qualcomm Gets 5G Ready: Snapdragon 765 5G SoCs Along With Snapdragon 865 Launched

Published

on

Qualcomm, at its fourth Snapdragon Summit in Hawaii, has announced three new smartphone chipsets. The company has announced the new Snapdragon 865 SoC along with Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 756G. The Snapdragon 865 is the company’s flagship SoC which is better than Snapdragon 855 and 855+ in many aspects like graphics, performance boost, and AI. But the chipset doesn’t have an integrated 5G modem, instead, it supports an X55 5G modem, which was launched earlier this year. So, next year, even if we see flagship phones being powered by Snapdragon 865, offering 5G connectivity, we will have to make a deal with battery power for sure. However, the company has not provided all the details and shared technical aspects today, more details will emerge in the next two days.

Apart from Snapdragon 865, Qualcomm also announced the two mid-range chipsets- Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G. These are the most interesting chipsets announced today as these will have integrated 5G, and also, these chipsets will make their way to more affordable phones. The biggest details about these processors are 15 TOPS (Trillion Operations Per Second) speed, offered by Snapdragon 865 and in terms of the Snapdragon 765 and 765G, the biggest highlights are  HDR10 4K video recording and support for up to 192-megapixel camera sensors.

 

Apart from the chipsets, Qualcomm announced its new in-display fingerprint technology called 3D Sonic Max. As per Qualcomm, 3D Sonic Max offers 17 times larger recognition area compared to that of the previous generation. With the new 3D Sonic Max, users will also be able to use more than one finger simultaneously for authentication.

In terms of first users of these chipsets, many prominent smartphone makers have already lined up and planned to use the chipsets in their latest devices. Xiaomi has announced that the Mi Note 10 will be launched in the first quarter of 2020 and it will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chipset. It will be one of the first smartphones in the world to be powered by the flagship chipset. Oppo will also launch a phone with Snapdragon 865.

In terms of more affordable phones, HMD Global owned Nokia will be one of the first ones to launch a smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 765 mobile platform. Xiaomi VP Lin Bin also announced that the company will launch the Redmi K30, powered by Snapdragon 765 soon with 5G support. It was already known that the Redmi K30 is being launched on December 10 and now, if that phone supports 5G then it may probably end up being the first mid-range smartphone supporting 5G connectivity.

Motorola’s President Sergio Buniac also made claims that Motorola will bring phones with Snapdragon 765 and 865, and he also stressed a bit about the developments going on regarding foldable phones. So, maybe we can expect the next edition of Razr Phone launching next year with the latest chipsets and 5G support.

Apart from these brands, Realme and Meizu also made claims of bringing phones with Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 765. These are some rumors that Realme X50 may come with the any of the new chipsets and with 5G. Meizu claims that it will be the first company to actually put a Snapdragon 865 SoC powered smartphone in the hands of the consumers. As of now, it’s not very clear who will be able to hold the title of first Snapdragon 865 powered phone or Snapdragon 765 powered phone, but this cold war among brands will surely turn interesting in the next few days as it has been confirmed that the Redmi K30 is coming with Snapdragon 765. More details about these latest chipsets from Qualcomm are awaited, meanwhile, a social media war among brands seem inevitable. We are closely keeping an eye on the developments and will share updates regarding the same.

Samsung’s Galaxy Fold was a hit or miss kinda smartphone, but it was a miss as it didn’t really meet the expectations of users at all. Problems with the protective cover and all slowed down the hype to almost a situation where we could just believe that the phone doesn’t even exist. But Samsung was already working on the next foldable smartphone and many reports were coming out regarding that. Now it looks like Samsung is bringing the next foldable phone- Samsung Galaxy W20 5G.

As the name itself implies to 5G, we are quite sure that the phone won’t be cheap at all, considering that it’s a foldable phone and it has got 5G. China Mobile, the world’s 4th largest carrier in terms of subscriber base has teased the phone. On a Weibo post, the company teased the Samsung Galaxy W20 5G.

The photo has texts that confirm the claim and we can see a foldable phone as well, partially open. It may be the successor to W2019, which was a flip phone which was launched at the same time a year back. However, the Samsung Galaxy W20 5G won’t have a physical keypad, instead, there will be a folding display similar to the Galaxy Fold. It is not still very clear whether the device folds horizontally or vertically, like the upcoming Moto Razr.

From the teaser, we can guess that the display is within the inner fold as the light is emerging from the inside. The Weibo post confirmed the launch of Galaxy W20 5G in November itself, which means that right now, Motorola and Samsung will go head to head in terms of foldable phones. Though, at this moment, the hype for the Moto Razr seems to be quite a bit high due to the nostalgic attraction towards its predecessor and due to the similar design. The Moto Razr interesting will have a display on the outer side and a tall display inside. As of now, it’s confirmed that the phone will be available in China via China Telecom, but Samsung hasn’t made any official statements regarding the W20 5G or its availability in other markets yet.
