The company introduced a couple of new chips for smartphones middle class — Helio P23 and P30.
Taiwanese MediaTek is trying to keep up with the market leader in single-chip systems (SoC) for smartphones Qualcomm. As expected, the company introduced a couple of new chips for smartphones middle class — Helio P23 and P30. MediaTek focuses on this market because the sector of expensive vehicles has been slower, and to compete there is much more complicated. Today, every fifth person out of 7.5 billion is the owner of the smartphone, the new features appear on the market rarely, so that many companies, including MediaTek, are turning their attention to emerging markets like India and China.
System on a chip Helio P23 and P30 designed to meet the 16-nm FinFET at the facilities of TSMC, with the aim of smartphones with dual cameras that are gaining popularity. They also support enterprises of the carrier frequencies LTE (Carrier Aggregation) and is designed to provide the capabilities and performance of high-end to more affordable devices.
As P23, and P30, endowed with eight 64-bit CPU cores ARM Cortex-A53, a high-performance four of them work at frequencies up to 2.3 GHz, and four more energy efficient — at speeds up to 1.65 GHz. The integrated in the intellectual bunch on technology MediaTek CorePilot 4.0, which more effectively controls the load and the power consumption of the CPU units and monitors temperature for safe and longer-lasting battery. The chips use a relatively new graphics accelerator ARM Mali G71 in the configuration MP2. GPU frequency P23 is 770 MHz, and more powerful P30 — 950 MHz.
The differences between the chips are also features of camera: P23 supports back camera in conjunction 13+13 megapixels, while the P30 — 16+16 megapixels. Processors can be used in smartphones with a single back-facing cameras, resolution up to 24 MP from P23 to 25 MP at P30. Thanks to a set of technologies Imagiq 2.0 manufacturer promises better noise reduction and lens artifacts like chromatic aberration. A new hardware control unit (CCU) accelerates focus and exposure. The P30 also has a new image processor (VPU) Tensilica at a frequency of 500 MHz, which saves energy consumption, speeds up the work and can be used in conjunction with the CPU and GPU. There are 2-channel 16-bit controller memory LPDDR4 @1600MHz.
P23 and P30 are equipped with the latest generation of 4G-modem MediaTek WorldMode. P23 supports LTE Cat 7 with a peak download speed up to 300 Mbps up to 100 Mbps for download. P30, in turn, also supports LTE Cat 13 (64 QAM), which increases the download speed up to 150 Mbit/s signal Quality is improved thanks to the technology of smart antennas TAS 2.0. According to the manufacturer, the world’s first chip to provide support for the Dual mode 4G VoLTE / ViLTE, resulting in better and more reliable communication on smartphones that use dual SIM card.
Tried Mediatek to develop the capabilities of the chips Helio P23 and P30: the simulation engine provides a power efficient video decoding H. 265 (HEVC) 4K at 30 fps (video as such, is already supported by many streaming services). Hardware compression in this format, unfortunately, is only supported in P30 and P23 can only offer 4K/30p H. 264.
The first smartphones based on new one-chip system promised in the autumn of this year at a price ranging from $150 to $500. While MediaTek Helio P23 will be used in devices for various international markets, and Helio P30 the first time will be exclusive of Chinese and Asian manufacturers.
