The rest of the two cores will be the just introduced Cortex-A35 cores with maximum clock speed of 1GHz.
This quad-core cluster design has already been hinted by previously leaked reports around the Helio X30, which gives some weight to the latest report. Going by the other rumored reports, the Helio X30 will be paired with LPDDR4 RAM, and get support from ARM Mali-T880 GPU, which is its latest and better graphics processor.
The MediaTek Helio X20 chipset seems powerful and is expected to power the hardware of many flagship handsets placed for 2016 launch. It will be interesting to see how the company will place the Helio X30 chipset, considering that the X20 is yet to take off.
