Xiaomi unveiled the Redmi Note 9 last week with a chipset called Helio G85 by Mediatek. Today the Taiwanese chip manufacturer has finally detailed the SoC itself – it comes with slightly faster GPU than the Helio G80, but keeps the same CPU.
The Helio G85 comes with two Cortex-A75 cores running at 2.0GHz and six Cortex-A55 units at 1.8GHz. The Mali-G52 GPU now is clocked at 1GHz, unlike the Helio G80 that was doing 950MHz. The chip has all of the features from the Helio G80 like VoW (voice on wakeup) and enhanced HyperEngine Game technology.
Mediatek is already shipping the SoC to manufacturers, so we expect more smartphones in the $200 price range to arrive with the Helio G85. [FULL STORY]
