MediaTek’s Helio X20 and X25 deca-core processors are starting to show up in smartphones like the Meizu Pro 6, Meizu MX6, and Vernee Apollo Lite. But the Taiwanese chip maker is already working on next-year’s model.

Like its predecessors, the Helio X30 will be a deca-core processor. But it should offer better performance, power efficiency, and network connectivity. In an interview with EET, MediaTek’s chief operating officer Zhu Shangzu provided some additional details about the upcoming chip.

First up, the Helio X30 will be the company’s first 10nm processor. Most of the company’s recent chips are constructed using a 28nm or 16nm processes. The move should lead to improvements in performance and energy efficiency.

The new processors are also said to feature improved modems, enabling support for more mobile broadband network bands.

The Helio X30 is expected to feature support for up to 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM and UFS 2.1 storage.

MediaTek is also said to be switching from ARM’s Mali graphics to PowerVR Series 7 graphics.
