MediaTek Helio G85

1GHz GPU & HyperEngine Enhancements for Gaming Greatness

Pumped up Gaming with 1GHz Graphics Core

The MediaTek Helio G85 pumps its Arm Mali-G52 GPU up to a 1GHz peak, blasting performance for avid mobile gamers. Meanwhile the octa-core CPU features two powerful Arm Cortex-A75 CPUs operating up to 2GHz and six Cortex-A55 processors operating up to 1.8GHz, interlinked by a large L3 cache for improved performance.

MediaTek HyperEngine

Gaming Technology

Performance Optimization

MediaTek HyperEngine provides intelligent resource management that ensures sustained performance and longer gameplay

  • Intelligent, dynamic management of CPU, GPU and memory according to active measurements of power, thermal and gameplay factors
  • Smoother performance in heavy-loading game engines, demanding scenes and intense gameplay
  • Enhanced power efficiency for even longer gameplay

Connectivity Enhancements

Connectivity enhancements mean a faster response and more reliable connections to ensure you can always stay connected.

  • Intelligent prediction of Wi-Fi & LTE concurrency triggers in just 13 milliseconds
  • A faster response between smartphone and cell-tower
  • Simply defer calls while in-game without the data connection dropping

Incredible AI-Camera

We’ve boosted the performance of popular AI-camera tasks such as object recognition (Google Lens), Smart Photo Album, scene detection and segmentation with background removal, as well as Bokeh-shot enhancements so these are fast and fun to use. 

Meanwhile, MediaTek NeuroPilot provides full compliance with Android Neural Networks API (Android NNAPI), allowing app developers and smartphone makers to create the best possible ecosystem for Android enhancements and app development.

Multi-Camera Smartphones with Premium Quality

The MediaTek Helio G85 gives brands the opportunity to create a wide range of multi-camera smartphones for consumer choice; tap any mix of wide angle, telescopic, macro and sensor sizes up to a large 48MP (4-cell). Meanwhile, the ISP design has additional security measures that means facial recognition actions such as smartphone unlock or digital payments are not only fast and accurate, but also benefit from another layer of security.

Building on generations of MediaTek Helio photographic excellence, the G85 includes a multitude of hardware accelerators, including a hardware depth engine for dual-camera bokeh captures, Camera Control Unit (CCU), Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and Rolling Shutter Compensation (RSC) technologies, plus it can also perform ultra-fast recording up to 240fps.

Integrated Voice on Wakeup

The MediaTek Helio G85 builds in VoW (voice wakeup) capability that minimizes power use and optimizes the platform size for brands to easily add helpful voice assistant services directly into the Android OS.

Highly Accurate Inertial Navigation

The MediaTek Helio G85’s leading design of inertial navigation provides an accurate location when underground, driving through tunnels and in any other situations where GNSS services are unavailable. With the ability to understand its orientation and direction the G85 can be placed in any position – ideal for driving.

Dual 4G SIM

Essential dual 4G SIM provides exceptional voice and video call quality via VoLTE/ViLTE services, faster connection setup time, more reliable coverage and lower power consumption from either SIM connection.

Fast & Reliable Connectivity

Wi-Fi 5 connectivity provides fast and reliable performance, while Bluetooth/Wi-Fi co-existence simplifies product design and assures a reliable connection when both technologies are used simultaneously.
