MediaTek introduced a new chipset today, one belonging to the Helio P series, the Helio P10. This new chip is an octa core 64 bit model, with a Mali-T860 GPU in tow. After the Helio X10 and Helio X20 midrangers, this also feels like a midrange to high end chip.
The newcomer seems to have a pretty strong GPU, the dual core 64 bit Mali-T860, clocked at 700 MHz. The CPU itself is a true octa core, with Cortex A53 cores and clocked at up to 2 GHz. It relies on the TSMC 28 nm HPC+ process to offer power and consumption management. This processor offers support for 21 megapixels camera sensors, with a TrueBrightISP engine in the mix for RWWB capture, getting twice as much light as a traditional RGB sensor.
Hi clarity and hi fidelity audio are also supported, plus there’s support for a dual main camera, a new de-noise and de-mosaic feature and Full HD screens with 60 FPS frame frate. Other specs include MiraVision 2.0 with UltraDimming, BluLight Defender and Adaptive Picture Quality, as well as LTE Category 6 support, with 2×20 carrier aggregation.
The P10 goes to OEMs in Q3.
