Meizu’s upcoming flagship Pro 6 will apparently come powered exclusively by MediaTek Helio X25.
The Meizu Pro 6 has been on rumor mill’s radar since the news about 6 GB of RAM came to light. Touted as Xiaomi Mi 5 rival, the Pro 6 will apparently come equipped with 128 GB of native storage space as the top configuration.
Recently, chipmaker MediaTek scheduled a special event to talk about the Helio series of chipsets. During the event, the company apparently introduced the power-packed Helio X20 chipset and its configurations. It is worth noting that the X20 is the first silicon with deca-core processor.
After the introduction, Meizu representatives apparently joined the event to talk about the next-generation Helio X25 chipset. Technically, the X25 is an enhanced variant of the X20.
As it turns out, Meizu helped in developing MediaTek Helio X25, which will be exclusive to the Chinese tech giant. However, the exclusive-right is valid only for several months, Giz China reported. The same chipset will be powering the upcoming flagship Pro 6.
The X20 apparently has tri-cluster processor design with 2x ARM Cortex A72 cores running at 2.3 GHz, 4x Cortex A53 cores running at 2.0 GHz and an additional 4x Cortex A53 clocked at 1.4 GHz. This chipset works in tandem with a Mali T880 MP4 GPU and it supports up to 25-megapixel camera or dual 13-megapixel cameras.
Apart from supporting 2K and 4K video recording, it also features fast charging option via Pump Express 3.0+ technology. To top it off, this silicon also supports VOLTE and all major network bands.
The main difference between both the chipsets is that the enhanced Helio X25 will apparently get an upgraded “Turbo cluster” clocked at 2.5 GHz. Additionally, it will also get a relatively faster GPU clocked at 850 MHz. Even though, the X25 takes up additional work, the power consumption will reportedly be same as the X20.
