MediaTek Helio P70 Review, Specifications & Phones

MediaTek Helio P70 SoC gives brands the ability to build powerful devices with great diversity. The mid-range chip was introduced in late 2018 as a successor to the Helio P60. It is built on the P60’s global success and critically acclaimed mix of class-leading hardware to provide even better experience for users.

Process Technology

The P70 chip is a 64-bit ARM based SoC and is fabricated on Taiwanese manufacturer TSMC’s 12nm FinFET process technology which is the same as what is found on Helio P60 chip and according to Mediatek, it offers up to 15% lower power than other 14nm-class products.

The chipset harnesses eight CPU cores – four Cortex-A53 little cores operating at up to 2.0 GHz and four Cortex-A73 cores operating at up to 2.1 Ghz, coupled with up to 8GB supports of dual-channel LPDDR4X-3600 memory. This, however, can’t be compared to the prowess on the Helio P90.

Mediatek Helio P70 Graphics

Mediatek’s P70 chip incorporates an impressive Arm Mali-G72 class GPU and 900MHz GPU frequency. When compared to the GPU on the prior P60 chip, the faster clock speeds generate up to 13% more performance. It also houses support for 20:9 displays at Full HD+ resolution that allow users to enjoy the most beautiful and modern smartphone designs with full fascia coverage.


For camera and photography, its new high-resolution depth engine gives a 3X boost in depth-mapping performance, which generates about 24fps visual bokeh previews while also saving 43mA per second with up to 48MP AI Snapshot for facial and scene detection, 32MP at 30fps with ZSD or 16MP at 90fps.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

It has a multi-core APU which operates up to 525MHz, and combined with MediaTek’s NeuroPilot enhancements, plus a new intelligent multi-threading scheduler. It can deliver 10-30% more AI processing efficiency than the previous P60 chip. Gaming experience is not left out as it frequently generates a heavy load across the SoC, the P70 provides 7% better DOU and up to 35% lower power to the P60.


It is dual 4G SIM enabled with use of popular VoLTE and ViLTE services on either cellular connection. MediaTek imputed an innovative Transmission Antenna Switching (TAS 2.0) technology which enhances user experience by using the best antenna combination to provide optimal and sustained signal quality at lowest power. This chip according to our review performs slightly better that the P60 chip.

Benchmarks (AnTuTu)

Over at AnTuTu, specifically on the version 6, the chip reaches a low of 133653, avg of 147915, median of 148490 and max points of 161973.
