100 smartphones will be powered by the MediaTek Helio P10 SoC this year
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.

Thanks for the tip!

This is better than Snapdragon 210 imo.

And probably better than the SD 615-617 The SD 650/652 should be better than this, but they probably cost more too

Even if they are the 650/652 should offer phones in the same price range and those would be the smart choice. I hope I am wrong and the P10 competes with the SD4XX series and not with the SD65X one.

Is this post a joke? i mean a total joke? X10 is on S808 level (or very close generally) and you are comparing it to a S210? LOL!

X10 is on SD808 level only in CPU multi-core, but much slower in single-core and GPU.

Pause. I respect it for having A53 cores going up to 2.0, but only TWO clusters on that GPU?

Right that's what I said. Mali-T860MP4 should have been standard.

Ikr? I'm no CPU techie, but I guess they're going for the most performance in everyday browsing while being as much energy efficient on the GPU as possible. lol def not a chipset to play intensive graphics on tho

Mediatek isn't as power efficient as they claim to be. Mainly has to do with optimisations or the lack there of. Even with low power cores and not that powerful GPU, the mediatek soc struggles to provide good battery life compared to the likes of Exynos and snapdragon chipset with similar processing power.
