Almost all flagships announced during the first half of the year are powered up by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 SoC. In the meantime, the OEMs almost forgot the MediaTek's latest top of the line Helio X30 SoC. The SoC is yet to be on board on any top-tier flagship device.
It seems like MediaTek do want to grab some attention of potential OEMs who are in search of 10nm SoCs for their flagships. The company released a video today on their Weibo account in which they highlighted the key aspects of Helio X30. At the moment, the Helio X30 is the only SoC in the market which is Deca-core and built on the latest 10nm processor. Being a deca-core it surely produces some extra power to fluently run the devices.
The video showcases the latest Helio X30 is 35% more powerful than predecessor X20. The best thing is it requires only 50% power as opposed to the predecessor which means it requires very less battery juice. It brings CorePilot verification system and a lot of new features on board.
It is featuring three cluster design. The first cluster is comprised of Cortex-A73 cores clocking at 2.5GHz, the second cluster has Cortex-A53 cores with a clocking speed of 2.2Ghz. Last but not the least, we have Cortex A-35 cores which are running at 1.9GHz only. As GPU, it has PowerVRXTP-MT4. The SoC can be accompanied with 8GB RAM as well as it supports 4K resolution display. You can check out more details of X30 promotional video by clicking here.
