MediaTek has just added two new chipsets to its premium mid-range Helio P series. Dubbed as the Helio P23 and P30, the processors are expected to feature on top mid-range smartphones. There are not many differences between the Helio P23 and Helio P30.
While both the processors come with the Mali G71 MP2, the clock speed on the GPS is different. The Helio P23 has a clock speed of 770MHz, while the Helio P30 features a clock speed of 950MHz. Another major difference is that the Helio P23 is only capable of handling dual 13MP cameras or a single 24MP camera, but the Helio P30 can handle two 16MP or a single 25MP camera.
Apart from that, everything is same on both the processors. They feature Octa-core Cortex-A53 cores running at a frequency of 2.3GHz. The Helio P23 and P30 also come with MediaTek's CorePilot 4.0 technology, which offers power aware scheduling, thermal management, and UX monitoring.
Thanks to this technology, the chipsets will work well in high-performance mode, and provide a smooth user experience at the same time. The Helio P23 carries dual SIM support, where both the SIM slots have 4G VoLTE/ViLTE support.
In addition, the Helio P23 and P30 also pack 4G LTE WorldMode modem, which makes both the processors capable of supporting every single network in the world on one chipset.
The mid-range chipsets also utilize a unique combination of Cat-7/13 bands providing download speeds of up to 300 megabit per second download and upload speed of 150 megabit per second. Both processors also feature MediaTek's TAS 2.0 smart antenna technology for better signal quality.
There is another new feature, which is the Vision Processing Unit (VPN) on the Helio P30. It is a digital signal processor running at 500MHz. The VPN also reduces power consumption and still provides a smoother visual experience.
The chipsets will make their debut in smartphones in the fourth quarter of this year. The Helio P30 will first become available in China before it rolls out to other markets.
