Chip maker MediaTek introduced the G90 series of processors aimed at gaming smartphones last summer. Now the company is introducing a more affordable Helio G70 series aimed at mid-range gaming phones.

Basically that means you can expect less impressive CPU and GPU specs, but enough horsepower to enable reasonably decent performance for gaming on the go.

That’s a strategy that rival Qualcomm is also embracing — the company’s Snapdragon 730G and 765G chips are basically souped up versions of their mid-range processors with the same model numbers (sans the G at the end) designed for affordable gaming handsets.

Here’s what we can expect from the MediaTek Helio G70:

  • CPU: 4 x ARM Cortex-A75 @ 2GHz + 4 x ARM Cortex-A55 @ 1.7 GHz
  • GPU: ARM Mali-G53 2EEMC2 @ 820 Hz
  • Memory: Support for up to 8GB LPDDR4x 1800 Mhz
  • Storage: Support for emMC 5.1
  • Max Display resolution: 2520 x 1080
  • Camera: Up to 48MP or 16MP + 16MP
  • Wireless: WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, LTE Cat-7 DL/Cat-13 UL

Other features include support for up to 60 fps video playback at 1080p or up to 30 fps video at 2K resolutions, and support for AI-enabled face unlock.

MediaTek says the chip also uses “HyperEngine game technology” for intelligent management of CPU, GPU, and memory resources to help with gaming performance.
