It seems that MediaTek is once again stepping up its game in the processor battle. Just recently, the company has announced its newest high end chips and the newest additions to the X20 series, the Helio X23 and X27.

The company claims that these new processors will offer a significant improvement in the user experience by improving overall performance (20% increase in processing power), imaging capabilities, and better power consumption.

The new X23 and X27 supports dual camera capabilities using the Mediatek Imagiq ISP, which is the first to make use of an integrated color and mono cameras, plus depth of field applications into one ISP. Both processors also feature Mediatek’s Tri-Cluster Deca-core architecture, which consists of 2 Cortex A72 Cores, 4 Cortex A53 cores, and another 4 Cortex A53 cores (slower than the first 4).

The X27 for example, offers increased speed over the current X25, and can operate at 2.6GHz on the A72 cores, and 875MHz on the Mali GPU. And finally, both these new processors are equipped with MiraVision, which supposedly reduces display power consumption by up to 25%, as well as MediaTek’s Envelope Tracking Module, which reduces power consumption by 15% when the device is at peak performance by dynamically adjusting the voltage from the power amplifier depending on the signal quality.

MediaTek claims that the smartphones powered by the X23 and X27 chips will be coming out soon, and we are very excited to see how these will perform in our tests.
