During the first half of 2016 the Helio P10 processor has become quite a hit among the chinese producers and made its way into quite some phone models. UMI successfully used it within their UMI Super and UMI Plus models and the midrange perfomance didn’t disappont.
But for their upcoming UMI Plus Extreme they are planning to use the bigger gun and the Helio P20 could be exactly that. Clocked at 2,3 GHz it should be roughly 20% more powerful than the P10 and the new Mali-T880MP GPU should kick the ass of the older Mali-T860MP2 too.
Processor is of course the main culprit concerning the whole performance of the phone and affects even stuff like the camera and its processing. Thanks to the 16nm FinFET technology the Helio P20 should be more power efficient and generating less heat.
So no wonder UMI are trying to reach out to Mediatek and finalize the contract with Mediatek about the usage of Helio P20 in the UMI Plus Extreme. And according to the latest information they are close, so the UMI Plus Extreme with Helio P20, 6 GB RAM, 64 GB ROM and Android 7.0 Nougat should be a reality very soon. Priced around $300 dollars it looks interesting and we will surely keep a close eye on it in the coming days.
