In May, MediaTek announced Helio X20 CPU which will feature 10 cores. The Helio X20 will feature CPU configuration of two heavy duty ARM Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2.5GHz, a medium performance quad-core Cortex-A53 group clocked at 2.0GHz, and a further power efficient quad-core A53 group clocked at just 1.4GHz.
MediaTek Helio X20 becomes the first CPU with 10 cores and Elephant P9000 is set to become the first phone to use this CPU.
MediaTek Helio X20 has amazing capabilities. It will have GPU from ARM’s latest high-end Mali-T880 generation, supports Category 6 LTE data speeds, and can manage dual image sensors or a single sensor up to 34MP.
Elephant P9000 is set to utilize most of these features. Elephant P9000 will have a 5.5″ 1080p display, MediaTek Helio X20 processor, 4GB RAM. It will feature 20.7MP rear camera and 8MP front camera. It has 32GB internal storage with microSD card expansion. The battery capacity is 3,100mAh.
Granted the specs are too heavy, but Elephant P9000 has the CPU to run it. The device will cost around $500 and will be launched in October.
