Helio X20 Speck Leak shows a Strong Processor

Ever Since MediaTek came out with the Helio X10, they were under strong pressure to make the next best processor to make it go head to head with the upcoming SnapDragon 820 from Qualcomm. Today new details of the Helio X20 just came out.


MediaTek Helio X20 is equipped with the world’s first Tri-Cluster architecture and a 10-Core (Also Deca-Core) Processor System On Chip (SOC). The Helio X20 is also using the 20-nm HMP Technology which includes two A72 cores clocked at 2.5GHz, 4 A53 Cores clocked at 2.0GHz,  and 4 A53 Cores clocked at 1.4GHz, and a Mali T880 MP4 GPU to top it all off. This combo has support for LTE networks over a wide range of frequencies.

When it comes to performance, the Helio X20 and the Kirin 950 are very similar, with multi-threading capability, the processor should more than bear the Snapdragon 820 from Qualcomm.


Recently, Zhang, General Manager of MediaTek in China has revealed in an interview that their Helio X20 Deca Core processors will go into full-blown production in the second quarter of 2016, and he also mentioned that they are working on Helio X20 based first party hardware as well. Undoubtedly Meizu, Xiaomi and many other manufacturers will be interested in the Helio X20. Reportedly many products are already under development to be released alongside with the processor.


Taking into account that the Le 1, and Le 1S have been using MediaTek processors, it’s very logical that we might see another Le device running on the Helio architecture at CES 2016.
