MediaTek Helio P90 Review, Detailed Specs & Phones

MediaTek Helio P90 was introduced by the Taiwan based manufacturing company, which is somewhat a rival for Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710. The testing device has acquired an average benchmarking score of 162,861 on AnTuTu.

The Snapdragon 710 that powers the OPPO R17 Pro offers slightly better performance than the P90. Nonetheless, the P90 comes loaded to the brim with enticing AI features. According to news gathered from the company, the P90 is currently the brand’s fastest mobile processor in 2019.

Process Technology (nm)

Manufactured in a 12nm process technology, the chipset which at first glance, might feel dated as compared to the competition’s 7nm and 10nm chips. However, MediaTek claims that not only does the chip boot faster AI performance, but also offers a good battery life. To do so, the company has made use of its CorePilot technology which enables processing done in the most efficient way across its cores.

MediaTek Helio P90 Processor

In terms of specs, the Helio P90 integrates at eight cores, two of which are made on ARM’s Cortex-A75 high performance cores clocked at 2.2GHz while the other six are Cortex-A55 battery-efficient and smaller applications cores running at 2.0GHz.

The processing cores is in a similar outlined configuration with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 712 processor and therefore, one can assume that MediaTek is targeting Qualcomm’s mid-tier chips with its latest. It supports up to 48MP or 16MP + 24MP or triple rear camera.

The chip includes a second-generation accelerated processing unit (or APU 2.0). One of the biggest feature in the chip is the improvement of a new bit of hardware called the AI Accelerator, which is delegated to deliver the lion’s share of machine learning power. It’s also worthy to note that Smartphones powered by the P90 can feature up to 8 GB of RAM.

It offers a powerful IMG PowerVR GM9446 GPU which is a great gaming tool. Supporting a 48MP camera dual sensor, it can capture incredible, super-resolution photos beyond even 8K resolution (44.7% larger). With a Capture at 48MP up to 30FPS at zero delay (ZSD) or super-fast frame-rate of 480FPS in 16MP resolution, as well as FHD+ display.


It comes with a Dual 4G VoLTE enabling both SIM’s with 4G LTE category 12 and category 13. VoLTE and ViLTE provide the best possible call and streaming live video experiences, with a faster call setup time and noticeably better sound quality. With 4G LTE benefits, the second SIM can also offer faster connectivity, a more reliable coverage and low power consumption than it’s previous generation chipsets.

It meets the needs of 4G only operators as future proof of 2G/3G networks are progressively retired. It also offers Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity as well as Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/c without leaving out FM Radio. It’s more of an upgrade to the Helio P60.

Benchmarks (AnTuTu)

Over at AnTuTu, specifically on the version 6, the chip reaches a low of 159335, avg of 161035, median of 165102 and max points of 172152.
