Chipmaker MediaTek has launched two upgraded mobile processors --Helio X23 and Helio X27—in its Helio X20 family.
MediaTek Helio X23 and X27 improves the overall performance, camera quality and power consumption of the SoC family. Together, the MediaTek Helio X20 family of high-end mobile processors, including the MediaTek Helio X20, X23, X25 and X27, offer smartphone makers an increasing range of performance options to meet their product differentiation needs.
“The MediaTek Helio platform fulfils the diverse needs of device makers. Based on the success of MediaTek Helio X20 and X25, we are introducing the upgraded MediaTek Helio X23 and X27. The new SoCs support premium dual camera photography and provide best-in-class performance and power consumption,”said Jeffrey Ju, Executive Vice President and Co-Chief Operating Officer at MediaTek.
MediaTek Helio X23 and X27 both feature the Mediatek Tri-Cluster Deca-core architecture (2x ARM Cortex-A72 + 4x ARM Cortex-A53 + 4x ARM Cortex-A53) and MediaTek CorePilot 3.0 technology.
The MediaTek Helio X27 offers a speed upgrade over the currently highest-end X25, operating at 2.6GHz for the ARM Cortex-A72 cores and 875MHz for the ARM Mali GPU. Both SoCs are claimed to deliver more than a 20% overall processing improvement and significant increases in Web browsing and application launching speeds based on MediaTek-engineered advancements in the CPU/GPU heterogeneous computing scheduling algorithm.
MediaTek Helio X23 and X27 fully support dual camera photography with the upgraded MediaTek Imagiq image-signal-processing solution. The MediaTek Imagiq ISP is the first to integrate colour and mono cameras and depth-of-field applications into a single ISP aimed at both quality and functionality for photography.
The newly introduced chipsets also include MiraVision EnergySmart Screen power-saving technology. It effectively modifies the smart display parameters based on the on-screen content and ambient lighting for up to a 25 percent reduction in display power consumption.
