Exclusive: MediaTek will release its first 6nm G-series chip in Q3 of this year

by Ijlala Maqbool

Trusted sources familiar with the matter informed us of MediaTek’s future plans for its G-series chipsets. The manufacturer intends to release a new chip based on the 6nm manufacturing process to replace the widely used Helio G96.

The current G96 is based on an out-of-date 12nm node and is long overdue for replacement.

The upcoming chip in question is still referred to as “Next-G” because no official marketing name has been assigned to it. It has the same CPU configuration as the G96, with two Cortex-A76 cores that run at more than 2.0 Giga Hertz and six Cortex-A55 cores that run at 2.0 Giga Hertz. The GPU is also the same – Mali G57 MC2.

The ISP can handle 108MP cameras and 2K video recording at 30fps, while the GPU can handle FHD+ displays at 120 Hertz. In other words, it is most likely the same as in the G96. It’s worth noting that this chip will still only support 4G connectivity.

We can probably expect the Next-G chip to be announced before the end of the first half of 2022, and we have heard that Chinese manufacturer Doogee will be the first to use it once it is available.
