While the MTK Helio X10 MT6795, carried in phones such as the pre-sale Xiaomi Note 2, is just barely out the gate, and with Helio X20 not scheduled to arrive until December, MediaTek is already hard at work on the next generation of high performance flagship SoC.

helio-x22-x30

While the Helio X22 is a minor upgrade to Helio X20, MTK MediaTek Helio X30 is a significant step up.

MTK Helio X22 specs

  • CPU: Deca-core (10 cores)
    • 2 ARM Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2.5 GHz
    • 4 ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2 GHz
    • 4 ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.4 GHz
  • GPU: Mali-T800
  • Cortex-M4 co-processor for always-on voice recognition

Helio X30 specs

  • CPU: Deca-core (10 cores)
    • 4 ARM Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2.5 GHz
    • 2 ARM Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2 GHz
    • 2 ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.5 GHz
    • 2 ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1 GHz
  • GPU: Mali-T880MP4
  • RAM: Support up to 4GB LPDDR4
  • eMMC: eMMC 5.1
  • Process: 16nm FinFET
  • Camera support: 40MP@24fps / 16MP@60fps

As we can see, details are somewhat lacking, but it’s enough to get us juicy. As mentioned, the Helio X22 can be considered an upgrade to X20, but the X30 is a different monster entirely.

It’s been recently reported that Qualcomm is downsizing, due largely to MTK’s rapid expansion. It’s also been speculated that the era of the $800 flagships is ending. With MTK in the game, this will be happening sooner rather than later.

While the general public has never heard of MediaTek, I think that will begin to change as we see more and more main brand devices carry MTK SoC.
