MediaTek plans more Helio chips

Up until recently the brand name MediaTek was associated with cheap smartphone processors. The launch of the Helio X10 chip, which was designed to compete with powerful chips from Qualcomm, and more importantly its success, has had positive consequences for MediaTek, though – the company now plans to launch several more Helio chips and grab a larger SoC market share.

The upcoming Helio chips will be called Helio X20, Helio X22 and Helio X30. The Helio X20 will be a 10-core processor that will include two ARM Cortex-A72 cores at 2.5 GHz, four ARM Cortex-A53 cores at 2.0 GHz and four ARM Cortex-A53 cores at 1.4 GHz. The chip will also have ARM Mali-T800 graphics, support for 4G LTE, 802.11ac Wi-Fi and an ARM Cortex-M4 co-processor for speech recognition and more. The Helio X22 will be the same Helio X20 processor, but will feature higher core clock speeds.

As to the Helio X30 – this chip will pack ten cores, four of which will be ARM Cortex-A72 at 2.5 GHz, two ARM Cortex-A72 cores at 2.0 GHz, two ARM Cortex-A53 cores at 1.5 GHz and another two ARM Cortex-A53 cores at 1.0 GHz. The chip will feature ARM Mali-T880 graphics, support for up to 4 GB of RAM and eMMC 5.1 storage.

There’s no information on when the new chips will debut but we expect to see them by the end of the year.
