MEDIATEK HELIO X20 SERIES

The MediaTek Helio X20 series is the world’s first mobile processor with tri-cluster CPU architecture and ten processing cores (deca-core). These groundbreaking chipsets deliver both extreme computing performance and unmatched power efficiency.  With the MediaTek Helio X20 series processors it is the experience that counts, and with state-of-the-art camera, display, gaming, and audio features this series is set to revolutionize the smartphone industry and address the growing global demand for flagship mobile devices.



THREE CORE CLUSTERS MEANS 
BETTER POWER EFFICIENCY

MediaTek Helio X20 series uses ten processing core grouped into three clusters to better match task needs to processing resources. Each cluster is designed to more efficiently handle different types of workloads. Much like adding gears to vehicles, dividing the cores into three clusters provides a more efficient allocation of tasks for optimum performance and extended battery life.


The benefit of a Tri-Cluster

Employing the latest version of our task scheduling algorithm, MediaTek CorePilot, simple tasks are delegated to one cluster of cores, while more-complex (and more-power-hungry) tasks are directed to the other clusters. When compared to more traditional processor architectures, the MediaTek Helio X20 series can deliver up to 30% better power consumption and up to 15% better computing performance.

A CAPTIVATING MOBILE EXPERIENCE, WITH MEDIATEK MULTIMEDIA

MediaTek Imagiq + Dual Cameras

The MediaTek Helio X20 series delivers top-tier photo and video capture with Imagiq, our new image signal processor (ISP). Imagiq successfully elevates the image quality and ease of use of smartphone cameras so photographers can snap quality images and videos without needing to worry about changing camera settings.

The MediaTek Helio X20 series introduces dual main cameras and features a built-in 3D depth engine as well as multi-scale de-noise engines, for faster response time between shots and unprecedented detail, color, and sharpness, even under extreme conditions.

MediaTek MiraVision + 120FPS Display

Smartphones are mainly judged by their display. We understand this and have built our powerful display enhancement technology into the MediaTek Helio X20 series. Call MediaTek MiraVision, it is a suite of display enhancement technologies designed to improve not only picture quality, but also battery life.

With a display refreshed rate at an accelerated 120 frames per second, the X20 series provides crisp and responsive scrolling of web content and maps, and uncompromised motion viewing supporting mobile games with high-resolution graphics.
