On the map: 2015 was the year that really put MTK on the map. Their 64-bit SoCs becoming standard in $150 China brand mobiles, while Qualcomm phones costing twice as much were still floundering at 32-bit. 

This doesn’t make a huge difference to the end user experience, but just as with “more megapixels is better”, 64-bit spec on a rapsheet adds an aura of impressiveness.

Lenovo: Helping MTK along was Lenovo, who was one of the first out the gate with an MT6752 mobile. This unit wasn’t just released in China, it was also released officially in India and made available in bulk units from China shops. As well, they gave it additional impressive specs to match the SoC; 2GB RAM and 1080P– all for $150, which at the time seemed incredible.

The SoC & CPUs: The next big thing from MediaTek is the MT6755 MTK6755 aka Helio P10. The P10 will feature an 8-core CPU clocked at 1.8-2.2GHz. The cores will be ARM 64-bit Cortex-A53, the same as what’s in MT6752 and MT6753.

The GPU: Where the MTK6755 differs is with the GPU. While in the MT6752 we have Mali-T760, the MTK6755 will carry Mali-T860. Mali-T860 and Mali-T880, first released in OCT-2014, are the next generation up from Mali-T760.

Powerful and efficient: According to ARM, they offer “1.8x more performance and are up to 40% more energy efficient when compared to 2014 Mali-T760 GPU-based devices”.

That’s a fairly tall order, and if the above mentioned ARM quote holds true, we should see significantly improved battery life and game frame rates from Helio P10 devices when compared to MT6752/MT6753 mobiles.

MediaTek just doesn’t stop, bringing their A-game against Qualcomm, and with recent news of MTK releasing N/C/S Americas based LTE radios, the gambit has been brought to Qualcomm on all fronts.

Upcoming Helio P10: Devices already planned to have MediaTek’s Helio P10 SoC are the Elephone P9000, Blackview R7, and several Lenovo devices.

Many versions: Unable to keep it simple, Lenovo is releasing several devices all more or less the same phone with slightly different specs for different markets. They are:

  • Lenovo K52-a40
  • Lenovo K52-a48
  • Lenovo K52-t38
  • Lenovo K51-t38

Keep this in mind when purchasing Lenovo’s next generation of mass produced mobiles.

big.LITTLE: According to this official spec sheet from Lenovo, the K52 will feature the MT6755m Helio P10 in big.LITTLE configuration with 4-cores Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz and 4-cores Cortex-A53 clocked at 1.0GHz. In addition to the already mentioned benefits of the GPU in the MTK6755 P10, this big.LITTLE setup should significantly increase battery life as well.

Android 6.0: There are also rumors from the Blackview R7 camp and the Elephone P9000 camp that they will feature Android Marshmallow 6.0. Whether this is just another marketing ploy by Elephone to draw you into their hype remains to be seen, but Blackview also touting Android 6.0 adds some credence to the whispers.
