MediaTek Helio G96 also features two powerful Arm Cortex-A76 processor cores clocked up to a speedy 2.05GHz in its octa-core CPU, and Arm Mali-G57 provides great graphics performance.

One of the devices that has been teased to come with this chipset is the Infinix ZERO X that Infinix plans to unveil on September 13.
