Mediatek Helio P70 Promises Lower "mA per second" Metrics

PRNewswire: MediaTek Helio P70 application processor promises lower power in many camera functions:

"For photography, its new high-resolution depth engine gives a 3X boost in depth-mapping performance, which enables smoother 24fps visual bokeh previews while also saving 43mA per second versus competitor alternatives.

With HDR-capable displays and photography a key trend for the latest smartphones, the P70 is unique among peers in its focus on real-time HDR capture, recording and processing and its hardware-driven ability to process RAW HDR images. Other HDR-centric enhancements includes RAW-domain multi-frame HDR capture and Zig-Zag HDR.

MFNR(MFLL) performance has been improved by 20%, meaning faster shot-to-JPEG processing so you’ll never experience a stutter as you capture a burst of photos. Further hardware enhancements include a hardware warping engine used for electronic image stabilization (EIS) that saves 23mA per second vs GPU; an anti-blooming engine prevents white-out; and accurate AI facial detection with intelligent scene detection that generates better 3A (AE, AF and AWB).

Helio P70 supports a variety of AI-infused photo and video experiences including real-time beautification, scene detection and artificial reality (AR) capabilities. The chipset features improved deep-learning facial detection with up to 90 percent accuracy. With support for a super-sized 32MP single camera, or 24+16MP dual cameras, the chipset gives device makers more design flexibility. Its three ISPs are tuned to provide significant power savings, reducing consumption by 18 percent compared to previous Helio generation dual-camera setups.

  1. What kind of image sensor data interface standards would be supported?

    Assuming MIPI CSI-2 + D-PHY, but which version/baud rates?
    How about SLVS-EC?
