Next gen MediaTek processor leaked

For the past couple years the discourse on mobile chipsets has been dominated exclusively by Qualcomm and its Snapdragon line of SoCs. This is especially true of the high-end and premium segment Android devices where most OEM’s are more comfortable with advertising their Qualcomm credentials. MediaTek the largest competitor to Qualcomm has been slow to make a move but in a recent attempt to capture user mindshare they released a video on their Weibo page to promote their latest Helio X30 SoC as a worthy competitor to the current Qualcomm offerings.

MediaTek the largest competitor to Qualcomm has been slow to make a move but in a recent attempt to capture user mindshare they released a small video to promote their latest Helio X30 SoC as a worthy competitor to the current Qualcomm offerings. The video shows that the SoC is the world’s first and currently the only mobile SoC with a deca-core processor manufactured on the 10nm fabrication node.

The video claims that the Helio X30 comes with up to a 35% increase in performance over its predecessor the Helio X20 while reducing the power consumption by 50%. Which effectively translates into the fact that the X30 is a more efficient and powerful processor.  In addition to this, the infomercial states the new CorePilot verification system and other improved features.

The video reveals the Helio X30 comes with up to 35% increase in performance over the Helio X20. The new chipset also drops power consumption by 50%, that means it runs in a low power state ensuring you get twice the duration of usage which the X20 offered. In addition, the Helio X30 also comes with a new CorePilot verification system, baseband support and lots more.

The deca-core Helio X30 has dual Cortex-A73 cores clocked @2.5GHz, quad Cortex-A53 cores clocked @2.2GHz and quad Cortex-A53 cores clocked @1.9GHz. The GPU onboard is a PowerVRXTP-MT4 GPU clocked @800MHz. Apart from this the SoC has a CAT 10  baseband at max, with support for QHD display resolutions, 8GB LPDDR4 RAM and UFS 2.1 flash storage support.

    Yes, why not? Out of my 4 phones 2 have Helio X10 in InFocus epic 1 purchased from Amazon and Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 purchased from Tiny Deal HK, two Coolpad one Mega 6737 Mtk and one Note 5 having Qualcomm 617 chip. Both X10 InFocus epic 1 and Note 4 are a breeze. I found even MTK 6737 is better than Qualcomm 617 so far as Internet is concerned. So far as gaming X10 is unparallel. I am fanboy of none. Coolpad Note 5 pulls back from the job.

    As long as MediaTek doesn’t improve their developer support on par with Qualcomm none is going to buy it. They should open-source the kernel source so that individual developers could build custom ROM image even after the ODMs stop giving out updates… This alone will take MwdiaTek favourite SoC among developers.
