MediaTek Helio P23 and Helio P30 are the two new SoCs of the Taiwanese chip maker, belonging to what is referred to as the “premium bandprice line”, so thought for powerful and expensive devices. They have very similar technical features, except for a few differences such as the clock speed of the graphics (which is always the Mali G71 MP2) and the support for photo sensors: the Helio P23 has a 770 MHz GPU and can handle two cameras from 13MP or 24MP, while the Helio P30 has a GPU that touches 950 MHz and can support two 16MP or 25MP camera cameras.

Both SoCs are manufactured with a 16nm TSMC production process and are based on eight 2.3GHz Cortex-A53 cores that – thanks to MediaTek’s CorePilot 4.0 technology – manage intelligently power consumption and thermal dissipation to achieve high performance And give a satisfactory user experience. They can support screens with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels, up to 4GB of 933 MHz RAM LPDDR4x or up to 6GB 1600 MHz RAM, and Dual 4G VoLTE / ViLTE (Voice over LTE and Video Over LTE) on both SIMs With 4G LTE Cat-7 DL / CAT-13 UL (download rates up to 300 Mbit / s) and cellular signal stability thanks to TAS 2.0 technology.
Only the MediaTek Helio P30 has a 500MHz Vision Processing Unit (VPU) that allows manufacturers to access an additional computational resource for both specific task management and CPU / GPU ease-of-performance tasks and autonomy Of the device. As with the Helio X30, the new MediaTek Helio P23 and Helio P30 also incorporate “Imagiq 2.0” technology that assures instantaneous exposure, noise reduction and EIS (electronic image stabilization). MediaTek Helio P23 supports video encoding / decoding at 1080p @ 30fps (H.264 and HEVC), while the MediaTek Helio P30 can handle 4K @ 30fps (H.264 and HEVC) video.
