Recently, the Chinese social network Weibo published “spy” pictures of the new smartphone company LeEco, announcement is yet to be. The picture was taken at a time when the device CPU-Z utility is run. According to her “testimony”, caught in a camera lens unit is based on MediaTek chips desyatiyadernogo of Helio series, made using 14-nm process technology. This unnamed SoC architecture includes eight energy-efficient 1.55-GHz Cortex-A53 cores and two high-performance 2.59-GHz core Cortex-A72.

Processor with such frequency characteristics, and furthermore Produced by 14-nm process, the current range of MediaTek missing. However, according to unofficial sources, this platform exists, although still not represented. Her alleged name – Helio X27. Judging by the index number, the Taiwanese chip maker is going to position this solution as a junior in relation to the 10-nm flagship Helio X30, the device on the basis of which will begin to appear in the second half of next year. At the same time, it is likely to get a higher rank than Helio X25.

However, in the absence of official information on MediaTek Helio X27 all other information about it should be taken as rumor, especially since the CPU-Z information on the process technology applied in the printing of these chips can be incorrect or even fake. Recall that the model Helio X20 / X25 is now available on 20-nm process.
