MediaTek today announced the Helio P20, which is the successor to its mid-range P10 SoC.
MediaTek Helio P20, much like its predecessor the Helio P10, is aimed at the mid-range smartphone and tablet lineups. It comes equipped with ARM's latest Mali-T880 GPU, and eight Cortex-A53 cores which have been clocked at 2.3GHz.
The Chinese company says that the new chip is 25 percent more power efficient than the Helio P10. It is built on TSMC's 16nm FinFET Plus (16FF+) process. MediaTek claims that the Helio P20 is industry's first SoC to support Samsung's LPDDR4X RAM module. This, MediaTek claims, provides 70 percent more bandwidth than the LPDDR3 and 50 percent power savings.
Other improvements include support for WorldMode LTE Category 6 and 2x20 carrier aggregation at up to 300Mbps download speeds, and 50Mbps upload speeds. The SoC also supports global dual-SIM dual standby, and LTE multimedia broadcast and multicast service, a feature that allows mobile devices to receive HD video content over LTE.
