Good news for all those Mediatek fans out there I guess, as the Taiwanese chip manufacturer, has started sending out invites for an event, scheduled to take place on August 29 – where the Helio P23 and Helio P30 chipsets will be unveiled.
These are the two newest members of the P-series family of chipsets, targeted at smartphones with slim profiles and mid-range specs, providing improved battery efficiency without skipping on performance.
According to recent rumors, the Helio P23 will be an octa-core 16nm chip built by TSMC, supporting 2K displays, dual cameras, and have Cat. 7 LTE.
The more powerful Helio P30 will also be manufactured by TSMC using a more efficient 12nm process and it will be equipped with 4 Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2.0GHz and 4 Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.5GHz, along with full Cat. 10 LTE speeds compatibility.
The imminent launch of these 2 chipsets has made several manufacturers such as Meizu, OPPO, Vivo and Gionee to sign up for the Helio P23/P30 already and a lot of them are already preparing their new devices, scheduled to be released by the end of the year.
