MediaTek has added two new members to its Helio series with the launch of Helio P23 and Helio P30. The MediaTek Helio P23 will be available globally in the fourth quarter of 2017, while the Helio P30 will launch first in China.
Both the chipsets are designed during the 16nm process and both of them are built on eight Arm Cortex-A53 cores with a clock speed up to 2.3GHz. The Helio P30 Mail-G71MP2 GPU clocked at 950MHz, while the Helio P25 offers the same GPU, but it is clocked at 770MHz.
Interestingly, both the chipsets support dual-camera setup. The P30 is capable of supporting single 25-megapixel camera sensor or another option is of 16-megapixel + 16megapixel of the dual camera sensor, while the Helio P23 support 24-megapixel of single camera sensor or an option of 13-megapixel + 13-megapixel camera sensors.
Further, both of them comes loaded with Imagiq 2.0 technology, and both of them are equipped to minimize aliasing, grain and noise, reduce chromatic aberration and more. There is also a new hardware Camera Control Unit (CCU) with auto exposure convergence speed that it claims to speed up to twice as fast as competitors.
Both the chipsets come with the support of dual 4G VoLTE/ViLTE support, meaning that both SIMs are LTE capable. The chipsets come with Cat-7/13 modem, which offers a 300Mbps download and 150Mbps upload speed.
If we go by the specifications of the chipsets, it won’t be wrong to say that Helio P23 and Helio P30 will compete against the Snapdragons last generation 600 series. The company did not announce which all smartphone is on board for P23 and P30 but it is most likely to suspect Oppo,Vivo and other major Chinese giants.
