This is controlled by MediaTek’s Corepilot to produce an efficient gaming performance. The chipset also comes with an integrated Voice on Wakeup feature which enables voice assistant with minimal power usage.

In terms of camera, the Helio G70 chipset supports a single(48MP) or dual camera (16MP x 2) setup with a wide-angle, telescopic, macro or other lens giving brands a variety of options in that region. There is a secure ISP for biometric feature such as facial recognition which is very fast and accurate.


In terms of connectivity, the chipset supports dual 4G VoLTE and up to 300Mbps downlink. There is also Bluetooth 5.0 and WiFi 5 (802.11ac).

Since its made for entry-level smartphones, we can expect to see it powering devices in the range of $140 – $150.
