MediaTek has introduced the newest members of the Helio chipset family, the Helio P23 and Helio P30 system-on-chips (SoCs) for mid-range 4G market.
The new chipsets is designed to deliver performance and power efficiency, dual camera photography, dual SIM and dual 4G VoLTE capabilities, support the explosion of innovation in the mid-range 4G market.
“Reaching the mid market means bringing people affordable devices that power and perform with the latest features, like dual-cameras and 4G LTE connectivity,” said TL Lee, General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communication business unit.
“In the rapidly growing arena of new premium mid-range devices, mobile technology innovators know they need to stand out in a crowded field – P23 and P30 enable them to do that,” added Lee.
For developed and emerging markets, P23 and P30, both 16 nm chipsets, deliver powerful combinations of premium photography experiences with outstanding connectivity, power-savings with amazing performance, and simultaneous 4G on dual SIM cards.
The MediaTek Helio P23 features support for 13+13 megapixel dual-camera setups, while MediaTek Helio P30 supports up to 16+16 megapixels.
Incorporating MediaTek’s Imagiq 2.0 technology suite, the chipsets are equipped to minimize aliasing, grain and noise, reduce chromatic aberration and more – resulting in clear, crisp, high-quality images across a number of lighting conditions. Additionally, a new hardware Camera Control Unit (CCU) – with auto exposure convergence speed up to twice as fast as competitors – ensures users never miss the moment they want to capture.
The P30 also features a new Vision Processing Unit (VPU), a dedicated 500 MHz digital signal processor paired to the Image Signal Processors. This frees up system resources and delivers a number of key advantages including: Programmability and flexibility, huge power reduction, performance boost, and delivering dual 4G VoLTE connectivity.
Powered by MediaTek’s CorePilot technology, the P23 and P30 are built on eight Arm Cortex-A53 processers operating up to 2.3 GHz for sustained high performance and unparalleled user experience. Both chipsets feature the new Mali G71 MP2 GPU, clocked at 770MHz in the P23 and 950MHz in the P30, delivering high-end graphics performance.
MediaTek’s CorePilot 4.0 technology with power aware scheduling, thermal management and UX monitoring enables sustained high-performance and reliably consistent user-experience. The P23 and P30 deliver fast performance and connectivity without sacrificing battery life.
In Q4 of 2017, the MediaTek Helio P23 will be available globally and the MediaTek Helio P30 will launch first in China.
