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.

If we operate an application it use the clock speed not cores.. So dual core of 2Ghz speed is faster than quad core with 1.3 GHz in that application But if the application designed to use multi core the quad core wins
QIku is the world's first smartfone with mediatek DECA-CORE processor
It's weird that people hype cores and dont realize that clock rate is more important
