Repeatedly hit the high-end market has failed, MediaTek now reduced his stance, temporarily abandon the high-end Helio X series, focusing on mid-range Helio P series. Currently MediaTek product planning in 2018 has been exposed, the two main products Helio P40, Helio P70 parameters also surfaced.
Helio P40 and Helio P70 are used TSMC’s 12nm process technology, 4 * Cortex A73 +4 * Cortex A53 architecture, Helio P40 core clocked at 2GHz, while the Helio P70 will Cortex A73 nuclear core clocked to 2.5GHz . Built-in GPU, P40 700MHz frequency Mail G72 MP3, P70 is more powerful, equipped with 800MHz frequency Mail G72 MP4.
At the same time, the Helio P40 and Helio P70 support LPDDR4x memory, UFS 2.1 flash memory, and triple channel ISPs with up to 32 megapixel cameras.
To meet the trend, Helio P40 and Helio P70 will support AI artificial intelligence technology, rely on DSP processing artificial intelligence applications, support Caffe 1/2 framework and Google’s second-generation artificial intelligence learning system TensorFlow. Terminal manufacturers can use their own needs such as voice recognition, image recognition and other fields.
The built-in baseband, the Helio P40 supports Cat.7, while the Helio P70 is to support Cat.12, and Xiaolong 660 X12 LTE Modem flat.
It is expected that these two new P series products will be unveiled in the second quarter of 2018 and will be launched ahead of Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 600 series. Coupled with the cost advantages, it should be welcomed.
