Computex 2015: MediaTek Helio P10 processor unveiled; to focus on slim smartphones

Taiwan’s MediaTek has launched the Helio P10 system-on-a-chip (SoC) at the ongoing Computex 2015 event in Taipei, Taiwan. The SoC will be available in Q3 this year and is expected to be in consumer products in late 2015, according to MediaTek.

The Helio P10 features a 2GHz true octa-core 64-bit Cortex-A53 CPU and a 700MHz dual-core 64-bit Mali-T860 GPU. The new P10 chip is said to be the first chip in the new Helio P family. It also comes with support for up to 21MP cameras and a new TrueBright image processing engine. It is also the first product to use TSMC’s 28nm HPC+ process, which allows for reduced processor power consumption.

Some of the new features available in the P series include several of MediaTek’s technologies, such as WorldMode LTE Cat-6, supporting 2×20 carrier aggregation with 300/50Mbps data speed; MediaTek’s task scheduling algorithm, CorePilot and MediaTek’s Visual Processing Application, the non-contact Heart Rate Monitoring, which uses a smartphone’s video camera to take a heart rate reading and is comparatively as accurate as pulse oximeters or portable ECG monitoring devices.

“The P series will provide OEM smartphone makers with greater design flexibility to meet consumer demands for slim form-factors, which provide dynamic multimedia experiences,” said Jeffrey Ju, Senior Vice President, MediaTek. He adds, “The P10 enables state-of-the-art mobile computing and multimedia features all while balancing performance and battery life.”
