10nm, Gigabit LTE, octa core and Mali G71 GPU
Samsung decided not to talk about the Galaxy S8 at the Mobile World Congress, channeling all the media attention to a Galaxy S3 tablet.
After years of whispers, Xiaomi finally announced its processor codenamed Pinecone and decided to call it the Surge S1. After Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi also goes for an in-house processor, but it is positioning itself it to the mainstream market. The first phone to get it is the Xiaomi 5c.
35 percent better performance at 50 percent lower power
MediaTek has officially introduced the Helio X30 and showcased prototype phones at the Mobile World congress. Helio X30 is a dramatic improvement from the last generation as the new SoC comes in 10nm, Imagination Technology GPU and performs faster with much lower power.
Helio P20 inside
It looks as if the cooperation between Sony and MediaTek will continue in 2017 too. A year after Sony announced the Xperia XA and the 6-inch XA Ultra, the company announced that the Helio P20 found its way in Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra.
Snapdragon 835 in action
Sony is the first company to launch a Snapdragon 835 based phone, and ZTE is taking Gigabit LTE very serious.
Outperforms Galaxy S7 by almost 2x
There is one generally incorrect conception that Wi-Fi is fast enough and that Wi-Fi is simply fast enough. The reality is that Fudzilla managed to prove that a Google Pixel phone powered by Snapdragon 821 SoC and Qualcomm Wi-Fi scores almost twice the performance of the Galaxy S7 phone.
10-core does the heavy lifting
Xiaomi is a company that sold over 41.5 million phones in China and the number is even higher when you add markets like, India and the Rest of the World. The company is well known for its mix of MediaTek Helio and Snapdragon products and usually offers the best price performance ratio.
10nm Cannon lake and price drops are the answer
AMD had a big day with its Ryzen launch which is the most important for AMD for years. Many didn’t believe it would even happen, but AMD has a product that competes with Intel’s fastest chips. Now, one might wonder what Intel is planning to counter it and we have a few ideas.
Key customers were not interested
MediaTek is planning a Helio X30 in 10nm later this year but news from Taiwan indicates that some key customers didn’t order the new flagship 10 core chip.
