In April 2019, MediaTek introduced a new chipset Helio P35 for entry-level smartphones. Speaking of special features of MediaTek Helio P35, it was announced for more affordable phones, it supports octa-core Arm Cortex-A53 CPU with a clock speed of up to 2.3GHz and it is coupled with an IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU which works with a speed of up to 680MHz. Also it is build using 12nm FinFET fabrication process and supports full HD plus display resolution with a 20:9 display aspect ratio. To give at a competition there is another chipset available in the market from its competitor Qualcomm and that is Snapdragon 450.
Here we will tell you how MediaTek Helio P35 performs against Snapdragon 450 and which one is better chipset between MediaTek Helio P35 and Snapdragon 450. Let’s compare MediaTek Helio P35 vs Snapdragon 450 chipset.
MediaTek Helio P35 vs Snapdragon 450 CPU & GPU
Before speaking of CPU of MediaTek Helio P35 chipset, let’s tell you that it offers a 64-bit Octa-Core CPU and it is build using 12 FinFET fabrication process. This chipset has 8 ARM’s Cortex-A53 cores and its maximum CPU frequency is 2.3GHz. This CPU is coupled with an IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU which works at a speed of up to 680MHz. Also it can support maximum display resolution of up to 2400 x 1080p.
At the same time, the Snapdragon 450 features a 64-bit Octa-Core CPU and it is build using 12nm LPP process technology. The Snapdragon 450 chipset has 8 ARM’s Cortex-A53 cores with a clock speed of up to 1.8GHz. For graphics this chipset offers Adreno 506 GPU and it supports OpenGL ES 3.1+ and maximum display resolution of full HD plus.
The CPU Frequency of MediaTek Helio P35 is higher because of which, it performs slightly better compared to Snapdragon 450 chipset.
MediaTek Helio P35 vs Snapdragon 450 Camera & Optics
Moving on camera, the Snapdragon 450 has 2x Image Signal Processor (ISP) which allows it to support dual camera up to 13MP and sungle camera up to 24MP. It also has Qualcomm Clear Sight camera features, Real time Bokeh during camera preview. It also can record videos in slow motion in 1080p at 60fps.
On other side, the Helio P35 chipset supports dual camera up to 13MP+13MP and a single camera up to 25MP. It can record video at 30fps with 25MP single camera and at 30fps with 13 + 13MP dual camera. Its camera can also support features such as AI Face ID, AI Smart Photo Album, Single-Cam/Dual-Cam Bokeh, Hardware Warping Engine (EIS), Rolling Shutter Compensation (RSC) engine, MEMA 3DNR, Multi-Frame Noise reduction.
MediaTek Helio P35 vs Snapdragon 450 RAM & Storage
Speaking of MediaTek Helio P35, it supports up to 4GB LPDDR3 RAM at 933MHz and up to 6GB LPDDR4X RAM at 1600MHz. In case of storage it supports eMMC 5.1 type of storage. While the Snapdragon 450 can support LPDDR3 RAM at 933MHz, eMMC 5.1 and SD 3.0 (SDCC) types of storage.
MediaTek Helio P35 vs Snapdragon 450 Connectivity
Connectivity wise the Helio P35 uses LTE Cat-7 for downloading and LTE Cat-13 for uploading. While the Snapdragon 450 has LTE X9 Modem which can provide a download speed of up to 300Mbps using LTE Cat-7 and upload speed of up to 150Mbps using LTE Cat-13. It also supports USB 3.0 and Quick Charge 3.0 technology.
Now moving on conclusion, the MediaTek Helio P35 chipset has higher CPU Frequency and better fabrication process because of which it performs better in processing and bettery performance. Also it supports better camera sensor and more RAM options. This chipset has some better options over the Snapdragon 450 chipset, while other options are almost same in both chipsets. But in some cases the Helio P35 performs better compared to Snapdragon 450. So the Helio P35 is a better option than Snapdragon 450.
