Mediatek introduces Helio P20 SoC at MWC

In keeping with its current product development path, as well as naming convention, MediaTek expanded its “P” family of chipsets with a new model – the Helio P20, expected to come to consumer devices in the second half of 2016.

It is an all-around upgrade over the Helio P10, with a big focus on improved power efficiency. The chip promises to draw around 25% less power than its sibling while also upping performance. This is achieved through the use of an octa-core ARM Cortex A53 setup, running at clocks up to 2.3GHz. Graphics come courtesy of the new Mali T800, running at a speedy 900 MHz, which is currently the most powerful GPU offer by ARM. The package is complete with support for low-power double data-rate random access memory (LPDDR4X), which is a world first in a mobile chip.
