According to ARMdevices, this "dual-core ARM Cortex-A72 with quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 big.LITTLE at 28nm with ARM Mali-T864 GPU is ready for mass production."
The same source mentioned above revealed an ultra-slim tablet powered by the RK3399 that features dual USB Type-C for charging, data, and display output. In addition to tablets, this new SoC is also expected to power notebooks, TV boxes, and even VR headsets. Its features include Mali-T864 graphics, 4K video playback, HDMI 2.0 output, and more.
