There are a lot of rumors about MediaTek Helio X20 MT6797 going around recently. The most amazing thing is that the chipset will be coming with a 10-core processor which is the first in the industry. Based on this, people are putting a high expectation on the smartphone which will be running on this chipset. Recently, there is confirmation that the 10-core processor chipset will make its initial debut in Elephone P9000.
MediaTek Helio X20 10-core processor is designed in a tri-cluster CPU architecture, 2 core A72 clocked at 2.3GHz, 4 cores A53 clocked at 2GHz as well as 4 cores A53 clocked at 1.4GHz. The structure is aimed to maximize the performance while using the minimum power so the smartphone which equipped with this chipset is expected to be fast as well as power efficient. On top of that, the chipset is expected to support up to 32MP camera with a built-in 3D depth engine, LTE Cat-6 as well as 4K video playback and recording support.
