MediaTek Helio X10

During this 2015 we were able to witness a sort of revolution within the mobile processor landscape, because Qualcomm, the main company in the sector, due to the various problems derived from Snapdragon 810, has proven not to be "invincible", thus showing the side to the various competitors, who have been able to take advantage of the situation, also introducing more than valid alternatives and up to, if not better, than those of Qualcomm.

However, companies like Samsung e Huawei, while producing excellent processors such as the various Exynos e HiSilicon Kirin, are somewhat out of the category, as practically all of their chipset productions are relegated exclusively to their products, both for marketing and optimization reasons.


And here, then, come up MediaTek, an Asian company that, until a few years ago was synonymous with low cost band, during this 2015 has been able to show muscles, churning out products likeHelio X10, processor that has been greatly appreciated by the various smartphone manufacturers.

And the news of these days can only make the company rejoice, as, taking into account this 2015, they were sold more than 100 millions of devices with on board the aforementioned Helio X10, and, if we consider that the first smartphone with this SoC on board (i.e. HTC One ME) only 2015 appeared in June, we are talking about a more than satisfactory result.

For those who do not know in detail the MediaTek MT6795 Helio X10we are talking about a SoC with a processor true octa-core, with architecture ARMv8-A to 64 bit and clock rate up to 2.2 GHz, while the graphic part is entrusted to one PowerVR GPU G6200 to 700 MHz; as for the RAM, we find support to modules of the LPDDR3 type dual channel to 933 MHz.

Here is a list of the main smartphones with on board Helio X10:

Furthermore, this 2016 will see the arrival of Helio X10's successor, that is Helio X20, whose recent benchmarks they do nothing but fuel the hype to see it at work on the next smartphones.
