In 2016, Two main points are been dicussed in Smartphones, One is High performance Processor / RAM, and camera which can be almost equivalent to DSLR Quality. As far as RAM / Camera is concerned, The compatibility goes with the Mobile Processor. While we’ve seen some big launches so far, mainly from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 and Exynos series of Processors. Next year almost all major manufacturers are expected to manufacture home made processors in the tune of 10nm.
Samsung’s has already showcased the upgraded Exynos processors and the most spoken processor is, Qualcomm 830 / 835. Now, its turn of Huawei’s latest processors, According to latest reveals, the Kirin 960 will be coming with upgrades on several fronts. The most important upgrade is the Network speed which may go up to Cat. 12 integration, which should also improve battery life a lot.
Alongside this, you should also expect the Kirin 960 to make jump to ARM’s Artemis and come with eight cores on board; ensuring that most of today’s performance intensive needs are met. However, the manufacturing process for the processor is still 16nm, so as the mobile world steadies itself for 10nm next year, the Kirin 960 should stay woefully behind once again.
In addition to the Kirin 960,In limelight, we can discuss about MediaTek and the Taiwanese manufacturer’s Helio X30. MediaTek is known for its unique approach towards the chip design as we saw with the deca core Helio X20. Now, according to Pan Jiutang, the manufacturer not only hopes to continue this design for its Helio X30, but the chipset will also be coming with some integral upgrades of its own.
Till now, Mediatek has been way too successful in low end smartphones specially coming with 3GB RAM and 16GB / 32GB ROM, talking of camera than we can count it upto 13MP. Beyond that, Mediatek has not been so successful, now it’s time for Mediatek to go in Premium smartphones.
As Samsung and Qualcomm race each other for the flagship processor crown, its high time for MediaTek and Helio to step up their game and today’s information suggests a bright future for the company. In addition to 10nm, the chip will also be coming with a similar tri-cluster design as the Helio X20.
The three core sets for the Helio X30 will be ARM’s Artemis upgrade combined with A53 and A35. These will be coupled with an improved GPU and support for up to 8GB of RAM. These should make the processor quite an offering for a lot of companies out there, so we’re eager to see how the Helio X30 shapes up.
