MediaTek Taiwan has become one of the largest manufacturers of mobile processors, specializing mainly in low-budget devices. Now it wants to conquer the market of high-end devices and has just announced its latest line of 64-bit 8-core Helio X series processors.
The Helio X family is designed for flagship smartphone models with eight cores, an LTE connectivity module, and supports the 4K standard and H.265 codecs, providing 120 Hz image refresh and 1080p video recording at 480 frames per second.
The first layout of the new family will be the MT6795W Helio X10. The 28 nm production system will be equipped with eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores and clocked at 2.2 GHz. The processor will be available in April, but this model will not be strong enough to compete with the most powerful Snapdragon.
MediaTek has plans for stronger versions, and plans to introduce a more modern 20nm variant on the ARM Cortex-A72 cores.
