What with no Meizu rumours last week we were starting to worry about the company, but they are back with a bang this week.
Meizu rumours tend to hit the Chinese news outlets daily but last week was unusually quiet for the Zhuhai phone maker (perhaps due to 11:11) however their marketing team have got back to work this morning with an interesting piece.
Today’s latest is all about another “mystery” flagship from Meizu and the processor that is may have when released.
Gizchina News of the week
We all know that Meizu won’t be using Samsung chipsets, and the ongoing legal battle with Qualcomm (not to mention all those back royalty payments they owe) will prevent them from using a Snapdragon chip. It’s once again looking likely that the new Meizu will run a Mediatek chipset, but not one we have already seen!
The news is that the phone could be the first device to launch with a Mediatek Helio X30 chipset! The processor will be the most powerful chip from the Taiwanese brand to date and is their first SoC made using 10nm technology.
Specs for the Helio X30 include a 10 core design made up of A73 and A53 cores, the ‘Turbo’ cores will run at up to 2.8Ghz and the chipset is the first from Mediate to support up to 8GB RAM!
