Helio P38: A73 Large Core, Low Price


After MediaTek has identified a strategy for focusing on the mid-end market, the news about the helio P40/P70 of MediaTek is continuing to ferment. According to the news, the helio P40/P70 adopted the 12nm process, added the A73 core, and integrated the mali-g72 graphics processor, which can support the Cat.12 standard. In particular, helio P70, the spread of the rabbit rabbit runs more than 15W. The performance is very exciting.

In addition to helio P40 and P70, the new mid-end mobile phone solution for MediaTek this year also has a new chip called helio P38, which may bring massive shipments for MediaTek.

From the number, helio P38 is a lower version of P40. The whole parameter of helio P38 is slightly less than that of P40. It continues 4 big 4 small nuclear architecture of P40 / P70, with a total of eight core, which is expected to the combination of 4 *A73 and 4 * A53. The main frequency is 1.8 GHz, and the integrated GPU is ARM Mali – G72MP3. The main frequency is expected to be reduced, and it is likely to apply the  12 nm process as P40 / P70.

People familiar with the matter said that terminal products with MTK helio P38 could potentially kill the price to “799 yuan or less”, locking up competitors, maybe Qualcomm Snapdragon 632. However, if the leaks are correct, helio P38 will not make its official debut until Q3 this year.
