Helio X30 10nm debut
MediaTek has been quieter than usual but it seems that its Helio X30 high end chipset will debut with the Meizu 7 Pro phone.
Dramatic jump from Helio X20
MediaTek is expected to bring the Helio X30 deca-core in 10nm based devices to the market in the next few months and we've already got some initial numbers where the company compares the X30 with last years Helio X20.
After years of whispers, Xiaomi finally announced its processor codenamed Pinecone and decided to call it the Surge S1. After Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi also goes for an in-house processor, but it is positioning itself it to the mainstream market. The first phone to get it is the Xiaomi 5c.
35 percent better performance at 50 percent lower power
MediaTek has officially introduced the Helio X30 and showcased prototype phones at the Mobile World congress. Helio X30 is a dramatic improvement from the last generation as the new SoC comes in 10nm, Imagination Technology GPU and performs faster with much lower power.
10-core does the heavy lifting
Xiaomi is a company that sold over 41.5 million phones in China and the number is even higher when you add markets like, India and the Rest of the World. The company is well known for its mix of MediaTek Helio and Snapdragon products and usually offers the best price performance ratio.
Promising chipset at MWC

First Snapdragon and many Helios
Meizu has just announced that it reached a licensing agreement with Qualcomm and the leaked roadmap shows a few unannounced MediaTek SoCs as well as the company’s first Qualcomm powered phone.
SK Hynix has joined Samsung with its ability to deliver LPDDR4 8GB memory for future phones and tablets. Fudzilla expects to see quite a few phones with 8GB or RAM in the high end market next year, but we think that 8GB is pure marketing and unnecessary for most phone tasks.
