MediaTek has unveiled another deca-core chipset, the next gen
Helio X30; the deca-core MediaTek Helio X30 isn’t expected to arrive in mobile
devices until sometime next year.
Helio X30 is manufactured using TSMC’s 10nm FinFET
process, the Helio X30 will contain a deca-core CPU with four Cortex A-73 cores
clocked at 2.8GHz to handle the heaviest of tasks, four Cortex A-53 cores will
run at 2.2GHz, and two Cortex A-35 cores running at 2GHz will handle light
The chipset will support cameras sensors of up
to 40 MP with video capture capped at 24 fps video. The X30 will also support
16MP camera at up to 60 fps video and 8MP shooters at up to 120 fps.
The upcoming chipset will support up to 8GB of
RAM, split between two LPDDR4 POP 1600MHz channels. For graphics processing, the CPU is paired with a quad-core PowerVR 7XT.
The chipset will support LTE CAT 12 as well.
