MediaTek has finally unveiled the successor of their popular Helio P60 chipset. Meet the new MediaTek Helio P65.
The new processor now has support for 48-megapixel cameras and tighter Artificial Intelligence (AI) integration. Gaming performance has been improved as well, so the overall experience should be better.
The new MediaTek Helio P65 SoC is an octa-core that has two ARM Cortex-A75 CPUs on 2.0GHz and six Cortex-A55 processors. It’s built on a 12nm process and the graphics department is handled by a Mali-G52 2EEMC2 clocked at 820MHz.
It can support resolutions of up to 2520 x 1080 and it can go up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM. There’s also eMMC 5.1 storage support as well as Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 5, GPS, LTE- Cat-4, Cat-7 DL, and up to Cat-13 UL that comes with carrier aggregation.

Compared to its predecessor, the MediaTek Helio P65 is twice as in AI performance and 30% better in camera-related tasks like AI object recognition, scene detection, photo album, and a whole lot more.
Going back to the camera system, it can now power up a 4-cell, 48-megapixel sensor, and dual-camera setups like two 16-megapixel shooters with support for wide/telephoto lens that can produce professional-quality bokeh. Rolling Shutter Compensation (RCS) and Electronic Image Stabilization technologies are also supported. In terms of video, it’s capable of handling 1080p at 60fps as well as 2K at 30fps.
Helio P65 will also come with improved and much faster facial recognition in order to have another layer of security for Android devices.
The MediaTek Helio P65 is already in the mass production stage and it should be ready to be released in smartphone starting next month.
