Mediatek Helio G36

Mediatek Helio G36

The Mediatek Helio G36 is an entry level ARM SoC for smartphones (mainly Android based) that was introduced in late 2023. It is manufactured in a 12 nm FinFET process and is equipped with 8 ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores clocked at up to 2.2 GHz. Compared to the similar Helio G25, the G36 offers higher CPU clock speeds (+ 200 MHz), GPU clock speeds (+30 MHz) and supports higher display resolutions of up to 2400 x 1800. Compared to the similar Helio G35, the G36 offers a 100 MHz lower CPU clock but supports 90Hz screens.

Furthermore, the SoC integrates a LTE Cat.4 modem, a Wi-Fi 5 / Bluetooth 5.0 modem, a LPDDR3-933 / LPDDR4-1200 / LPDDR4x-1600 memory controller, a IMG PowerVR GE8320 graphics card, and a 1080p30 video de- and encoder (H.265 decoding, H.264 encoding).
