Analyst tries to predict Helio X30 specs
The famous smartphone analyst Pan Jiutang, known for accurately predicting the tech specs of various upcoming smartphones, has shared his opinion on the upcoming MediaTek Helio X30 smartphone SoC. According to him, the new chip will be made on a very advanced 10 nm tech process and will have 10 processing cores.
Just like in the older Helio X20 and Helio X25 processors, four of the integrated Cortex-A35 cores will run only for solving simple tasks, while demanding tasks will be tackled by the still upcoming Artemis cores. The clock speeds are as follows: the four ARM Cortex-A35 cores will run at 2.0 GHz, while four Cortex-A53 cores will operate at 2.2 GHz. Helio X30 will also have two Artemis cores that will operate at the impressive 2.8 GHz. The chip is also expected to support up to 8 GB of RAM, a dual camera setup, up to 26 MP rear cameras, LTE and include a PowerVR graphics core. According to preliminary estimates, the Helio X30gets 160 000 points in AnTuTu, which makes it faster than the Snapdragon 820 processor, which gets 130 000 points.
The new Helio X30 chip will be put to good use next year. It is expected that the new SoC will power future high-end smartphones only.
