MediaTek to offer 10nm Helio X30 chipset?
MediaTek's Helio X20 SoC was the first to market with a deca-core CPU. That was followed by the slightly faster Helio X25, which will be found powering the Meizu Pro 6 and the LeTV Le2. Today, there is some talk that MediaTek has started work on the Helio X30. Like the Helio X20 and X25, the X30 will feature the tri-cluster design.

Current speculation has the Helio X30 packed with two 2.8GHz Artemis cores, four 2.2GHz Cortex-A53 cores and four 2GHz Cortex-A35 cores. It features a quad-core PowerVR 7XT GPU, and will support a 26MP camera, dual camera setups, VR connection and LTE Cat. 13. The chip will be manufactured by TSMC using its 10nm FinFET process, providing  up to twice the power efficiency of the Helio X20 chipset.

The Artemis core is made by ARM and is the successor to the Cortex design. It will challenge the new Kryo core produced by Qualcomm, which debuted on the Snapdragon 820 SoC.
Until we hear the official word from MediaTek about the Helio X30, we suggest that you take this report with a grain of salt.
