China-based smartphone manufacturer Elephone is working on its new smartphone called the P9000. The device could become the world’s first smartphone to be powered by a deca-core (10-core) processor in October. It will utilise the MediaTek Helio X20 MT6797, which has the industry’s first tri-cluster architecture.
The Helio X20 has two 2.5GHz Cortex A72 cores, four Cortex A53 cores running at 2GHz, and another four Cortex A53 cores with a clock speed of 1.4GHz. The Mali T800 will be the graphics processor of the Elephone P9000. The phone will sport a 5.5-inch full HD display, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory with a microSD card slot, and run Android Lollipop. It will offer a 20.7MP rear camera, an 8MP front snapper, dual-SIM, and a 3,100mAh battery.
The MediaTek Helio X20 is expected to offer better power consumption management, as it will be packing so much power under the hood. The phone is expected to go on sale priced at $499 (around Rs 31,700).
In related news, Elephone is all set to make its Indian debut. The Elephone P8000 has beenlisted on Flipkart as “Coming Soon”, which suggests its official launch in the country is imminent.
