MediaTek’s new Helio G99 processor will debut on another Infinix NOTE 12 device that’s set to be announced soon. Infinix has announced on Twitter that it is partnering with MediaTek to be the first to implement the new chipset.
The new Helio G99 is built on TSMC’s 6-nanometer architecture and features two ARM Cortex-A76 cores with a top speed of up to 2.2GHz, and 6 Cortex-A55 cores at up to 2.0GHz. For graphics processing, there is the Mali-G57 MC2.
The new chipset promises 30% energy savings during gaming compared to the Helio G96. It powers full HD+ displays with resolutions of up to 2520×1080 and up to 120Hz refresh rates. It supports two LPDDR4x RAM modules and both eMMC 5.1 or UFS 2.2 storage. For the camera, it can power 108MP sensors. It also supports the WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 5.2 standards.
What’s curious is this: Infinix has already unveiled the NOTE 12 Series with the high-end NOTE 12 VIP featuring the old Helio G96. There are already 4 devices in the NOTE 12 Series, and we know there’s a 5G NOTE 12 device in the works.
I thought this upcoming device with the Helio G99 would be the 5G device, however, the Helio G99 doesn’t support 5G networks. So that means in addition to the Infinix NOTE 12 with Helio G99, we should expect yet another Infinix NOTE 12 5G devices. Exactly how many devices in total will the NOTE 12 Series have?
