MediaTek will be releasing two new chips for mid-ranged phones using TSMC’s 12nm process. What’s great about the smaller process is that it offers more efficient power. In other words, better battery life.

After a bad year where their flagship SoC Helio X30 underperformed by being chosen to power only the Meizu Pro-7 Plus and the Meitu V6, the company scrapped their plans to develop the Helio X line.

They have instead chosen to focus on mid-range segment devices where they are looking to expand their presence by developing a couple of chipsets named Helio P40 and P70. They are expected to arrive in the second quarter of 2018 with features that can satisfy both the high-end segment of the market as well as enhance their mid-range share.

As for the features of the new chips, a few details have been leaked about both. This is what is known so far:

The Helio P40:

  • Will have an octa-core chip to process data
  • Will feature 4x A73 cores clocked at 2.0GHz and 4x A53 cores clocked at the same speed.
  • The GPU will be a Mail-G72 MP3 clocked at 700Mhz
  • The GPU will have at least 3 ISP’s with support for 32MP cameras.
  • The chip will also support up to 8GB LPDDR4X of Ram at 1866Mhz and eMMC 5.1
  • It will have UFS 2.1 storage.
  • It will support TensorFlow and Cat.7 LTE.

There are fewer details about the Helio P70 but it’s supposed to be a more powerful iteration of his brother-in-development, here is what is known so far:

  • It’s supposed to rival the Snapdragon 660 with a build of four 2.5GHz A73 cores and four 2.0GHz A53 cores.
  • The main difference being on the GPU where the chip will deliver more powerful and detailed graphics thanks to the presence of quad-core Mali-G72 GPU clocked at 800MHz.

The specs seem to be powerful enough to be attracting a new body of investors to the company. Reports indicate that Xiaomi will carry the chips in 2018 as well as small brands of smartphones such as Vivo, Oppo and Gionee.
