Helio P35 Processor, an upcoming alternative to Snapdragon 660.
To give Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 processor a healthy competition, Mediatek is currently working on a new Processor in their Helio range, called Helio P35.
With a very strong architectural specification, it seems that Mediatek is bringing a powerful alternative to it’s competitors in the same range.
To carry the heavy load of processing, Helio P35 is coming with Deca-core CPU consists of Two Cortex A73 64 bit cores with a clock speed of 2.2 GHz.
If the graphical power is considered then with Mali G71 GPU, it’s going to be a superior solution to its competitors. With better power efficiency & improved performance density, it’s better than Mali-T880.
Mali-T880 which is being used in many top of the line smartphones like Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge.
For superior performance & high download speed, Helio P35’s chipset supports LPDDR4 RAM upto 10 GB & Cat 10 LTE Modem respectively.
As a benefit of belonging from MediaTek family, Helio P35 will also get the efficiency of Pump Express 3.0 battery charging technology, which makes the charging super fast.
It (Pump Express 3.0, which debuted Computex 2016) promises to charge up your phone’s battery from 0 to 70% in just 20 minutes.
But in P35, the GPU is not coming in its full version. Means, as it has been reported that the max resolution supported by P35 is 1080p. But Mali G71 supports 4K visuals.
So this may seem a shortcoming, with the same GPU you will not get its full resolution support. But apart from this, feature/ capability wise this all new processor is seeming really impressive.
It’s quite clear that after releasing in the market it’s going to give a good competition to Snapdragon 660 from cost-effectiveness.
Qualcomm is also bringing their mid-tier chip with octa-core CPU, Adreno 512 GPU & with many other things by the second quarter of 2017.
For Helio P35 the expected release date will be in the third quarter of 2017.
Now let’s see how this new processor performs in the market after its release. But for now, it’s seeming really promising.
