After having had a great 2015, Mediatek is all but set to make a bang this year too. Last year the Chinese chipset maker made a name for itself thanks to the powerful Helio X10 SoC which powered many a flagship smartphones including the likes of Meizu MX5, HTC One M9+.
Mediatek has big things planned for this year too. The company claims that their latest Helio P10 chip will make its way into 100 smartphone that will be launched during the course of this year. In an interview with FudZilla, officials from Mediatek stated that their latest chipset has been well received by the industry and will soon power 100 smartphones.
The official however didn't touch down on any approximate number for their flagship Helio X20 chipset. It's worth noting that the Meizu MX6 is reported to be one of the first phone to be powered by the Helio X20 Deca core chip.
The report by FudZilla further state that the Mediatek has roped in 50 different OEMs for using their Helio P10 chip. The company's however weren't ready to disclose any of their names. But is safe to assume that most of them are affordable Chinese smartphone manufacturers.
For those unware the Helio P10 is the latest eight core SoC (8X2.0GHz Cortex A53) from Mediatek which was launched during Q4, 2015. It uses a 28nm HP+ manufacturing process and brand new CAT 6 Modem. This is coupled with Mali T860 MP2 GPU clocked at 700MHz.
Expect OEMs to launch most of these 100 phones during the first quarter of 2016. The Helio X20 powered device will however launch a little later.
