That for an animal?

The chipset is available for 12-nanometer FinFET technology at the facilities of TSMC. It has the architecture of big.LITTLE: four powerful ARM Cortex-A73 frequency up to 2.1 GHz supplemented by four Cortex-A53 at 2GHz. The manufacturer raised the frequency of the graphics accelerator Mali-G72 MP3 from 800 MHz to 900 MHz, providing a 13% increase in GPU performance. Also stated optimization for games, allowing 7% to reduce delay and 35% reduction in energy consumption compared to Helio P60.

The new SoC supports a proprietary platform NeuroPilot. Tasks associated with artificial intelligence and machine learning will be 10-30% faster. AI can be used for face recognition, definition of scenes when shooting on camera tracking poses of a person and video processing.

Helio device P70 can be equipped with display Full HD+ aspect ratio up to 20:9 cameras with resolution up to 32 megapixels or dual systems on 24+16 megapixels. New image processor consumes 18% less energy when working with dual cameras. Performance in portrait mode with the bokeh effect increased three times. Declared support for shooting in RAW for HDR.

Built-in 4G LTE modem supports VoLTE on two SIM cards. Data transfer rate up to 300 Mbps.
When to wait?

Mass production P70 Helio has already begun, the first devices based on it will appear in the Nov. The new chips P-series focused on a segment of “new premium” — so called MediaTek devices average price category with advanced features that are typically found in more expensive models.
