These smartphones come from some of the major manufacturers like Sony, HTC, Oppo, Huawei, Meizu, etc. Well, we don’t have to discuss much the processor now as we all know how powerful it is. The best examples are some of the devices running it like the Oppo R9 and R9 PLUS.

Well, now it looks like UMi is also getting onboard the game as the company has now signed a deal with MediaTek for the first ever implementation of the helio P20 SoC. Yes, the new smartphone from the company will be running on the latest and greatest Helio P20 SoC. This new SoC will be powering the upcoming UMi Plus “Extreme” variant from UMi. So we now have the best reason to look forward to this device.

As we all know that the company launched the new UMi Plus smartphone just recently. It packed some serious specs under the hood for the price at which it was offered.

The Helio P20 will come with a with an increase in frequency on the 8 Cortex A53 cores. The performance cluster is now clocked in at 2.3GHz instead of 2.0, with a 20% higher performance. On the GPU side, the Mali T860MP2 has been upgraded to a T880MP2 and clocks have been raised 200MHz to 900MHz, for a 25% upgrade over P10. The multimedia blocks also see some enhancement in their capabilities and can now decode and encode in 4K. The ISP has also seen upgrades and now has more processing power to support up to 24MP single cameras or 13+13MP dual cameras.
