MediaTek's new Helio G99 SoC is slated to debut in a new Infinix smartphone
MediaTek has launched its latest mobile processor as the Helio G99. It is based on a 6-nanometer (or 6nm) architecture, and has 2 ARM Cortex-A76 cores with a top speed of up to 2.2GHz, and 6 Cortex-A55 cores at up to 2.0GHz. Its GPU is the Mali-G57 MC2, and supports its OEM's HyperEngine 2.0 Lite.
Therefore, even though this new G99 is a 4G/LTE-only chipset, MediaTek asserts that it will make for some of the highest-performing new phones with this level of connectivity.
It is rated to drive up-to-120Hz displays; then again, this spec can be paired with slightly older internal standards only, including RAM of the LPDDR4X-4266 standard and storage with UFS 2.2 speeds.
The company has announced that it will update this series of smartphones with a new, G99-powered variant. The new Note 12 lacks pricing and availability, although Infinix hints this info will be here "soon".
