The phase of octa-core CPUs is fast coming to an end, and 10-core CPUs would be taking it’s place. MediaTek’s top-tier 10-CORES (Deca-core) CPU dubbed helio X20 would be coming soon on a smartphone of Asian (Chinese) origin, so it’s not Samsung. The device is going to be the flagship of OEM giant Elephone, dubbed Elephone P9000.
Helio X20 has the industry’s first tri-cluster architecture which packs two Cortex-A72 processor cores clocked at 2.5GHz for optimal performance, four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2GHz for striking a balance between performance and power consumption, and another four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.4GHz for power efficiency. The GPU will be Mali-T800.
Priced at $500, the deca-core carrying smartphone would tag along at a phablet sized 5.5″ with resolutions of 1080p. A hefty 4GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage with memory card slot are also included in the offering.
There’s the massive 20.7MP rear camera as it’s main shooter, while selfies would be captured by an 8MP front camera. There’s a 3100 mAh battery to give it the needed power to boot, and of-course, Android 5.1 Lollipop straight out of the box. The device is a dual-SIM handset with a dual-standby mode.
P.S: The details are not yet confirmed from coy, so please take the listing with a pinch of salt till we can confirm.
