If not already, we have been seeing very powerful chipsets in a lot of phones launching in Pakistan now. But today, Mediatek, the world’s 4th largest global fabless semiconductor company announced its G-series chipsets which will be used in future game-oriented phones by leading smartphone brands in Pakistan.
The new chipset, MediaTek Helio G95 will be aimed at high-end premium phones and it is only justifiable by the upgrades it comes with. The family also consists of the G90 series, G85, G80, G70, G35, and G25 chips. The chips are expected to be launched in the first quarter of 2021.
MediaTek set to Power Premium Gaming Smartphones
The powerful MediaTek Helio G95 offers gaming enthusiasts faster performance and high-end features like advanced multi-camera photography – up to 4 cameras, with an inbuilt AI processing unit (APU). It provides dual wake-up word support and enables HDR10 standard display, which can be enhanced to approach HDR10+ quality in real-time.
The chip is equipped with an ultra-low-power, always-on DSP that supports dual wake-up word detection, ensuring seamless concurrence between two parallel Voice Wakeup (VoW) functions. The ultra-low-power DSP minimizes power consumption of applications such as the always-on Google Assistant and supports multiple keyword triggers and virtual assistants.
The MEA Director, Rami Osman gave us a lot of insight during his speech also regarding when and with whom will they be collaborating to bring this new wave of chipsets here. He said, and I quote:
Pakistan is a young and rising global market with many multinationals including MediaTek seeing potential growth in it regarding Mobile phones, Consumer Electronics, and other Smart Products. Pakistan has a great growth potential accelerating migration from 2G Feature Phones to 4G Smartphones with a population of over 200M and around 12M unit smartphone market annually. In the coming days, we will work to support this Smartphone acceleration on two fronts. First to bring more flagship phones in the market with the help of Smartphone brands such as Xiaomi, RealMe, Infinix, and others with our Helio G-Series focusing on Mobile Gaming. Secondly, we would work with Mobile Operators on network support for the latest 4G technology such as Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and KaiOS Digit 4G Smart Feature Phone running on our entry 4G SOC

Seeing this, it is safe to say that the year 2021 is going to be a great one regarding smartphones. We might also see low to mid-end phones also giving us powerful enough chipsets to play the current performance heavy games with ease.
With the cutting-edge gaming performance enhancements, AI camera features, and advanced connectivity, and multimedia features, the MediaTek Helio G series chipsets are bringing consumers around the world superior smartphone gaming experiences.
