There is a possibility the chip maker, MediaTek is working on a new mid-tier processor from its Helio range. The processor will be known as Mediatek Helio P35 and some of its specifications are deca-core CPU in which the heavy load is carried by two Cortex-A73 64-bit cores clocked to 2.2GHz.
The graphics unit is the Mali G71, which is ARM’s current top-of-the-line solution with 20% higher power efficiency and 40% improved performance density compared to the Mali-T880 – used in, for example, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Since the processor is a mid-range one, the GPU will likely be a cut-down version, as the report says that the Helio P35’s maximum resolution support is 1080p, while the G71 is good for 4K visuals.
Specifications of MediaTek Helio P35
The chipset supports up to 10GB of LPDDR4 RAM and bundles a Cat 10 LTE modem that allows download speeds of up to 450Mbps. There’s UFS 2.1 storage support as well, which means that the fast memory standard is ready to trickle down to less expensive alternatives to flagship smartphones. Being a MediaTek chip, the Helio P35 will benefit from the manufacturer’s Pump Express 3.0 fast charging technology as well.
The Helio P35 is expected to be introduced into the market by the third quarter of 2017 as a cost-efficient alternative to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 for the Chinese. Mediatek already has many deca-core processors in the market, the Helio P35 which is yet to be released is one of them. But do you think a deca-core processor like the upcoming Helio P35 will offer a significant improvement in power consumption and general performance?
