2017 was not a good year for MediaTek because in 2017 the Company had launched only one high-end chip-The Helio X30, and only two devices “Meizu Pro 7 Plus” and “Meitu V6” got powered by this processors.Now MediaTek wants to recover it’s market share by selling more chipsets, so now MediaTek will focus on the mid-range segment where the Helio P series works. The rumors are coming that the company is going to release Two new processors which are as following Helio P40 and Helio P70. The pair of SoCs which built at 12nm by TSMC is expected to arrive in Q2 2018, mixing the best of the High-end segment with the mid-range grade.Helio P40 The Helio P40 had heard some few months ago. but,this new leak is showing that The chipset will be an Octa-Core consisting of four 2.0Ghz A73 cores and four A53 2.
0Ghz A53 cores, the graphical power will be ensured by a Mali-G72 MP3 clocked at 700MHz. The P40 will also bring the support to 32MP cameras Additionally, the Chipset will support up to 8GB of RAM LPDDR4x up to 1866Mhz, eMMC 5.1 and UFS 2.1.The Helio P40 processor will confirm that what is believed to be a new trend in this year(2018). The chipset will support AI functionality with Tensor Flow support.
Lastly but not the chipset brings LTE cat.7 support.Helio P70While the P40 is worth our attention, the one stealing the show will be the Helio P70.
This chipset will probably come to rival the likes of Snapdragon 660, coming with Four 2.5GHz A73 cores and Four 2.0Ghz A53 cores. The biggest difference rests P70’s GPU, it will provide more advanced graphics due to the presence of a quad-core Mali-G72 GPU clocked at 800Mhz.The Helio P70 will support up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, brings the same eMMC 5.
1 and UFC 2.1 storage of its small brother. This chipset should be fitted in more advanced smartphones, as it’s performance could be similar to previous models of Helio X series.So Let us see that this new processors could be successful or not, for MediaTek in this year.
