MediaTek has high hopes for its Helio P10 SoC. The chipmaker has every reason to be optimistic. According to Vice Chairman & President CJ Hsieh, the chip has over 100 design wins and will be found under the hoods of 100 smartphones this year. After the P10 ships, the Helio X20 will be next. That is the chipset that carries a deca-core CPU.

The Helio P10 is equipped with a true octa-core CPU. All eight will be Cortex-A53 cores running at a maximum speed of 2.0GHz. The Mali-T860 MP2 GPU running at 700MHz, is included. The chipset supports up to 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and contains a modem with LTE CAT. 6 capabilities. The Helio P10 is manufactured using the 28nm process.

The MediaTek Helio P10 has been shipping since the last quarter of 2015. Thus, we could see some of the 100 phones powered by the chipset unveiled as soon as the current quarter. The handsets that will use the SoC in 2016 are being built by 50 different smartphone manufacturers. Most of them will be Chinese producers building value priced units.
