Mediatek has officially announced the next generation Helio P series processor – the Mediatek Helio P20. It offers 20% more higher performance than its predecessor – the Helio P10 and is expected to power mid-range to high-range mobile devices which should arrive starting from the second half of 2016 (Q2 2016).
Built using the 16nm process, the Mediatek Helio P20 is a 64-bit Octa-core processor with 8 x Cortex-A53 CPU cores clocked at 2.3GHz paired along with the 900MHz ARM Mali-T880 MP2 GPU, integrated WorldMode LTE Cat.6 modem with 2×20 carrier aggregation and global Dual SIM Dual Standby.
It supports two displays with 1080p Full HD resolution @ 60 frame per second and is the first chipset to use Samsung’s LPDDR4X, by lowering the supply voltage to only 0.6v brings about 70% more bandwidth and 50 percent higher efficiency compared to LPDDR3.
The Mediatek Helio P20 supports up to 24 megapixel sensors at up to 24 frames per second at zero shutter delay. It also includes RWWB sensors, a dual phase-detection autofocus and imaging engine upgrades designed to provide more natural and detailed photographs.
Connectivity options onboard include Bluetooth, FM, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, GPS, GLONASS, e.t.c.
Onthe the launch of the Helio P20, Executive Vice President and Co-Chief Operating Officer at MediaTek, Jeffery Hu said;
