MediaTek intros Helio P23 and P30 mid-range processors

MediaTek Helio P23 and P30 mid-range SoCs now official, devices coming in Q4 2017
MediaTek Helio P23 and P30 now official
The two new chips keep the typical mid-range Cortex-A53 core blocks used by their predecessors, but provide new GPUs and modems. Both are scheduled to roll out in the last quarter of this year.

Yesterday, MediaTek unveiled two new Helio processors. Dubbed Helio P23 and Helio P30, they refresh the family of chips that helped MediaTek gain a solid market share in the low and middle sectors of the mobile market. Both processors use the Cortex-A53 cores employed by the Helio P20 and Helio P25, but they come with enough improvements to bring them closer to the top-of-the-line Helio X series.

These are the highlights of the MediaTek Helio P23 and Helio P30:

  • CPU - 4 x ARM Cortex-A53 @ 2.3 GHz, 4 x ARM Cortex-A53 @ 1.65 GHz
  • GPU - ARM Mali-G71MP2 @ 770 MHz on Helio P23, same GPU @ 950 MHz for the P30
  • Memory - 2 x 16-bit @ 1.6 GHz LPDDR4X for both, 1 X 32-bit @ 933 MHz LPDDR3 (Helio P23 only) 
  • Display - up to 2,160 x 1,080 pixels
  • Video processing - 2160p30 H.264 & HEVC decoding on both; 2160p30 H.264 encoding on both, 2160p30 H.264 & HEVC on P30 only
  • Camera support - 24 MP single and 13 MP + 13 MP dual for P23; 25 MP single and 16 MP + 16 MP dual for P30, with Vision Processing Unit (Tensilica DSP) for image processing
  • Modem - 4G LTE Cat 7/13 300/150 Mbps, dual SIM, dual standby, dual VoLTE

Both chips are manufactured by TSMC using the 16nm FinFET technology. The official product pages are not available yet, but MediaTek confirmed that the Helio P23 and P30 are scheduled to roll out by the end of the year. The first one will be globally available at launch, but the P30 is set to launch only in China.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
