We know that when it comes to gaming smartphones, the prices are somewhere higher than we expect. It usually depends upon the brand we are going to purchase and the processor of gaming chipset. However, if you are looking for something cheaper, then I might suggest you wait for the new gaming chipset by MediaTek which is being planned to be made available even on the lower and less expensive smartphone models.
The gaming branded chipsets have become a thing in the few years, and this could be a modern requirement in the upcoming years. We should thank the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G and MediaTek Helio G90T. It is because both of the processors target the mid-range to upper range smartphone these days. But it looks like MediaTek is even planning something big and cheaper to bring all-new chipset for the lower and less expensive priced smartphone models.
The new chipset will be below the G90 series in terms of capability but not too much said by Yenchi Lee from MediaTek to Android Authority. The company yet has not disclosed any specifications related to this announcement. Hopefully, it will not make any significant difference in terms of performance.
However, the leak points often report that the new chipset from the MediaTek will be running on octa-core CPU design (two Cortex-A75 and six Cortex-A55) and a Mali-G52 MC2 GPU.
GPU Updates and Tri-cluster Tech
The company also pioneered the Triple power domain CPU, which is currently in the trend and available in most of the flagship’s chipsets models. It mainly divides the CPU cores into the big, medium, and small cores. However, we have not seen this in Density 1000 or 800 models, though, but according to the reports, MediaTek won’t be giving up on this technology.
The lee said, “We will continue using the triple CPU technology, and that will be available to see in the latest release.“
If we look at the Qualcomm, then it does deliver very cool features in its latest released processors of Snapdragon 865, and 765, and the reports show that using the chipsets, the user does not need to wait for the system update for updating graphics drivers.
It is because the Google Play store itself could do the update. This question has also been raised during the recent event to Lee from MediaTek. Lee said, “We will try to achieve this in future, and we don’t have any timeline or surety that it would be available in near upcoming 2020”.
The latest chipset from the MediaTek would be called Helios G70, and it will be available in the cheaper smartphones under the 200$ budget from the first half of 2020.
