MediaTek unveils the 10nm Helio X30 chipset with a quad-core PowerVR 7XT GPU
The chipset will support a camera carrying a sensor as high as 40MP, and video capture as high as 24MP. A 16MP camera can take video at 60fps, while an 8MP snapper will receive video support up to 120fps. The Helio X30 will work with a device sporting as much as 8GB RAM. This support comes in the form of two LPDDR4 POP 1600MHz channels. The GPU on board is a quad-core PowerVR 7XT, which makes it perfect for the upcoming explosion in VR enabled devices.
The modem supports three carrier aggregation and LTE Cat. 12. We would expect to see the Helio X30 SoC powering some high-end smartphones in Asian markets during the second half of 2017. Interestingly, when the chip leaked back in March, the specs were almost nailed perfectly.
