MediaTek may plan to release its first 6nm G-series chip by the third quarter of the year, inside sources reveal.
The company plans to release the new chip based on the highly advanced 6nm manufacturing process to replace the Helio G96, which in itself, is a quite popular chipset, sources said.
The upcoming chip in question is still only referred to as “Next-G” as it hasn’t received an official marketing name. It employs the same CPU configuration as the G96 with 2x Cortex-A76 cores running at more than 2.0 GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores ticking at 2.0 GHz. The GPU remains the same as well – Mali G57 MC2.
“As per the performance capabilities of the new MediaTek chip, it is capable of handling cameras with resolutions up to 108MP, 2K video recording at 30fps, and a few other metrics similar to the latest G96 iteration. That may be true, as there are indications that the very first MediaTek 6nm chip will not support 5G network connectivity. Chinese phone maker, Doogee has also been mentioned as one of the first brands to debut the Next-G chip,” according to Gizmochina.
