MediaTek's high-end deca-core Helio X20 chipset is set to make a debut in mid-October housed inside the Elephone P9000. The Chinese smartphone is expected to debut on October 20 with $500 price tag.
The MediaTek Helio X20 deca-core chipset carries the model number MT6797. It follows the MediaTek Helio X10 MT6795 model with octa-core processor.
Helio X20 has the industry's first tri-cluster architecture which packs two Cortex-A72 processor cores clocked at 2.5GHz for optimal performance, four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2GHz for striking a balance between performance and power consumption, and another four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.4GHz for power efficiency. The GPU will be Mali-T800.
Elephone P9000 will feature a 5.5" 1080p display, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage with memory card slot, 8MP front camera, 20.7MP rear snapper, and 3100 mAh battery. The device is a dual-SIM handset with a dual-standby mode.

It's weird that people hype cores and dont realize that clock rate is more important
Eh, Samsung is crap. My $200 Asus Zenfone 2 performs _everything_ faster than Samsung S4. And it has "only" 2 cores.
