MediaTek just announced it upcoming SOC lineup, which will be arrive somewhere at the end of the year. This new lineup will include the Mediatek Helio P23 and P30. Where both are designed to be used globally. But for now the Helio P30 will only be limited to be used in China initially.
In terms of specs both the Media Helio P23 and P30 will come equipped with eight cores. As both the chips are octa-core processors running on Cortex A53 architecture. Though when it comes to performance side of things. There isn’t a lot of difference between the two chips over its predecessors. But user will be getting new features with better IP blocks with these new chips from MediaTek.
Both the Helio P23 and P30 will be running at 2.3GHz on its high cores. While the low powered cores will only be using 1.65GHz of performance. But here users will be getting better graphics processing power. As both the MediaTek Helio P23 and P30 comes equipped with Mali G71 GPU, over the Mali T880 used on its predecessor. Aside from that the MediaTek Helio P30 also comes with support for HEVC encoding with dual camera support. Which can support two 13MP cameras in a dual camera setup. Same goes for the MediaTek Helio P25 as well.
MediaTek will also be bringing Imagiq 2.0 imaging technology to both these new chips. Which is currently only present on their top tier chips such as the Helio X30. That brings support for noise reduction, instant auto exposure as well as electronic image stabilization. Aside from that users will also be getting VOLTE support that will offer LTE on both the SIM for a dual-SIM supported smartphone.
MediaTek will be making their upcoming Helio P23 and P30 chips on a new TSMC 16nm manufacturing process. That alongside an extra bump in performance will also provide a more energy efficient chip.
