MediaTek processors are usually used in low to mid range devices where there are some pricing constraints. But things might change with its Helio X20 as it easily beats its rivals in multi-core performance. But here we are going to talk about Mediatek’s Helio P10 SoC which comes with an octa-core processor going upto 2.0 GHz. MediaTek claims that their Helio P10 has got very good response from the manufacturers.
According to a report from Fudzilla, MediaTek’s CJ Hsieh claims that they have signed agreements with more than 50 smartphone manufacturers which will be using the new Helio P10 processors in more than 100 devices. Mediatek started shipping Helio P10 in Q4 2015 and the devices with this SoC will start showing up in Q1 2016. The Helio P10 comes with eight cores clocked at 2.0 GHz and Mali T860 MP2 GPU. It is also MediaTek’s first ever processor to use 28 nm HP+ manufacturing process which would supposedly provide upto 30% reduced power consumption.
As far as we have heard, Meizu Blue Charm Note 3 will be one of the devices running on Helio P10 SoC. Hsieh further says that the number will also be good for devices running on Helio X20 this year.
