MediaTek today announced the Helio P20 system-on-a-chip for phones and the MT2511 for wearables. The Helio P20 targets sub-flagship devices. It runs eight ARM Cortex A53 cores clocked at speeds up to 2.3 GHz and it is paired with LPDDR4X RAM. The SoC was made with MediaTek's 16nm process and includes a Mali T880 GPU at 900 MHz. The SoC also packs a Cat 6 LTE modem with support for 2x20 MHz carrier aggregation for download speeds up to 300Mbps. The P20 consumes 25% less power than the Helio P10. The P20 uses the same image signal processor found in MediaTek's high-end Helio X10 chip, and can handle large-megapixel cameras and high-definition video. The Helio P20 will ship in the second half of 2016. The MT2511 is an improved biosensor for fitness-based wearables. It can capture ECG and PPG signals at the same time and uses such a small amount of power than it can track heart beats through the night to measure resting heartrates. MediaTek claims the MT2511 is so accurate, it can also capture EMG, EEG, pulse oximetry, and blood pressure signals. MediaTek envisions the MT2511 will be useful in the health industry. MediaTek didn't say if the MT2511 will also be compatible with smartwatches.
