Meizu MX6 to be powered by deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 SoC
According to information just found in AnTuTu’s database, Meizu’s upcoming MX6 smartphone will be the first on the market to be powered by MediaTek’s deca-core Helio X20 (MT6797) chip. The MX6 will also, reportedly, feature 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of built-in storage space. The unit tested in AnTuTu was running Google Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system with Meizu’s Flyme user interface. As earlier rumours suggest, it will also sport 4G LTE connectivity and a 1080p resolution display, although its diameter remains unknown at this point.
Launched last May, the Helio X20 SoC makes use of tri-cluster design, with 10 computing cores divided into three groups. First one consists of two 2.5 GHz ARM Cortex-A72 cores for maximum performance. Second one is made of four medium-performance 2 GHz ARM Cortex-A53 cores. The third group, containing four of the same A53 cores but clocked at 1.4 GHz, will be used for least power-hungry tasks. The chip recently made an appearance in another popular benchmark’s (Geekbench) database, where it scored a whopping 7037 points in multi-core test.
MediaTek Helio X20 also features Mali T880-MP4 GPU, a Cortex-M4 core used for audio decoding, speech enhancement and voice recognition. The chip's controllers support 2K displays, camera sensors up to 32 MP and Cat. 6 LTE with 300 Mbps download and 50 Mbps upload speeds.
Meizu’s new flagship smartphone’s launch date is still unknown.
