A few days back we have seen MediaTek unveiling its new chipsets which were added to the Helio family. The Taiwanese giant named them as X20-X23 and X27 and now UMi Z is going to be the first smartphone to come with Helio X27. According to the press release, the device is expected to come in December but is nothing about the specifications and pricing is known yet.

Coming to Mediatek Helio X27 (MT6797X) sports a tri-cluster deca-core design like the X2x predecessors, but the maximum frequency is up to 2.6 GHz on the most powerful ARM Cortex A-72 cluster. The frequency is also bumped for the Mali-T880MP4 GPU up to 875MHz, and it has MiraVision EnergySmart Screen technology to enhance power efficiency and upgraded Imagiq ISP for camera processing adding built-in 3D depth engine for depth of field processing and supports mono sensor.

The multiple sensor designs will be able to capture three times the light compared to the normal single sensor. There is also an MT6300 Envelope tracking module that will complement MediaTek’s CAT-6 modem and the voltage supplied to the RF power amplifier uses continual and fine-grained voltage adjustments to increase the amplifier efficiency. This reduces the heat generated and can save up to 20 percent current at the maximum power level.

Well, nothing is confirmed yet by the company yet, so we need to take this with a pinch of salt. UMi is making a device to be unveiled in December and it could be UMi Z. We have seen UMi Plus E was the first device to come with Helio P20 processor and we can expect similar to happen again. Are you excited to see this new device from UMi? Stay tuned to PhoneRadar and we will get back to you once we get official information from the company. Do comment in the section below if you have some something to share with us.

    looks like UMI wants to be the first company to use latest and powerful Mediatek processors in there smartphones, but I don’t mind it coz they provide great value for money products!!
