MediaTek Helio P90 launched, supports deep-learning facial detection

As per the report, MediaTek has worked a lot on its AI and if we consider AI functions only, it's expected to deliver four times improved processing as it's featured with APU 2.0 for handling the AI tasks compared to the last two chips, Helio P70, and P60. The chipset is now under production and will be available to smartphone manufacturers by Q1 2019.

What's more, the Helio P90 can offer an elevation of about fifteen percent in the performance of the smartphones over the older Helio chip which was released in February.

MediaTek introduced it's latest top-end SoC in the P-series Helio P90 in China today. The GPU is no longer the Mali-G72 MP3, but a IMG PowerVR GM 9446 clocked at 970 MHz produced by Imagination Technologies, which promises a performance increase of 15%. The chip is made in the 12nm manufacturing process, with Cortex-75 cores running at up to 2.2 GHz and six A55 cores at 2.0 GHz, both successors of the A75 and A73 cores present in the P60/70. MediaTek's newest CorePilot technology to ensures processing is done in the most efficient way across its cores.

The increased amount of performance by APU 2.0 within Helio P90 is apparently able to deliver not only faster AI processing but also supports more complex and dynamic AI applications. Additionally, it renders support for Google Lens, deep-learning facial detection, real-time beautification, object and scene identification, artificial reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) acceleration. It also supports common frameworks such as TensorFlow, TF Lite, Caffe and Caffe2. Phones featuring it can support 48-megapixel camera or 24-megapixel + 16-megapixel dual camera setup. It is also capable of 14-bit RAW and 10-bit YUV processing allowing users to process and edit images on their mobile devices.

On the connectivity front, Helio P90 now supports Cat 12 4G LTE and this doubles the peak download speed to 600Mbps. This will bring a new affordable smartphone generation in the market in the future. Users can capture at 48MP with up to 30 frames per second (FPS) with zero shutter delay, or enjoy super slow-motion at 480FPS in HD to capture every moment. The ISP AI engine can accurately detect faces and scenes in real-time under low light and motion conditions, MediaTek claims.
