MediaTek Helio P65

Everywhere Enhancements for Great Gaming

The MediaTek Helio P65 brings a new wave of hardware that mixes big Arm core performance and a new Arm G52-class GPU that lifts the bar for performance mainstream users and avid mobile gamers. This leading technology mix offers up to 25% faster performance versus competitor alternatives that use older generation cores.

The P65 incorporates a pair of powerful Arm Cortex-A75 CPUs operating up to 2GHz, plus six, nimble Cortex-A55 processors in a single, octa-core cluster. These are interlinked and share a large L3 cache for improved performance. MediaTek’s CorePilot resource control maintains a reliable, consistent performance regardless of how long you’re in-game.

Unique among peers the P65 builds in VoW (voice wakeup) capability, optimizing platform size and power use. MediaTek has also separated the audio channels for voice commands and calls from media and games, allowing for respectively better quality.

2X Faster AI-Performance

AI performance has been improved 2X compared to the previous generation mainstream Helio series’ and offers up to 30% faster performance versus direct competitor SoCs in AI-camera tasks such as object recognition (Google Lens), Smart Photo Album, scene detection and segmentation with background removal, and single or dual camera Bokeh shots.

With MediaTek NeuroPilot support and full compliance with Android Neural Networks API (Android NNAPI), developers and device makers have the best possible ecosystem for Android enhancements and app development, with support for many common AI frameworks.

48MP & Advanced Multi-Camera Photography

The MediaTek Helio P65 enables large, dual camera systems up to 16+16MP offering flexibility for wide/tele with clear-image zoom technology, or other setups. Alternatively, brands can go super-sized and use a single 48MP, 4-cell camera as a key differentiator.  A new, secure ISP design means facial recognition actions such as smartphone unlocking are ultra-fast, highly accurate and add a new layer of security.

Building on generations of photographic excellence in MediaTek Helio, the P65 includes a multitude of hardware accelerators to provide dependable performance with excellent results. These include a depth engine that enables professional-grade Depth of Field (Bokeh) effects; Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and Rolling Shutter Compensation (RSC) technology, which cleverly mitigate warped (‘jello effect’) video when capturing ultra-fast action (up to 240fps) or panning shots. A Camera Control Unit (CCU) enables Instant AE for considerably faster focusing exposure adjustment when environmental lighting conditions change suddenly.

Our Most Accurate Positioning Engine Ever

We’ve created our most accurate GNSS & positioning engine ever. Its upgraded inertial navigation engine compensates when indoors, underground or driving through tunnels. With the ability to understand its orientation and direction, the P65 can be placed or held in any position – separating orientation from inertial readings when GNSS is unavailable.

Connectivity includes essential dual 4G VoLTE for exceptional voice and video call quality, faster connection setup time, more reliable coverage and lower power consumption. Meanwhile, 802.11ac connectivity provides fast Wi-Fi performance, while Bluetooth/Wi-Fi co-existence simplifies product design and assures reliable performance for the user.
