MediaTek announced 2 Helio Chipsets what they call ‘The Perfect Duo‘, presenting the MediaTek Helio P23 and the MediaTek Helio P30. The major highlight about these chipsets is that it supports 4G on both the SIM slots.
For now all 4G handsets available in the markets (in India) supports 4G on both SIM slots but when you enable 4G on a SIM the other SIM will switch to 3G / 2G. This means that you will be able to use 4G on only one SIM at a time.
With the MediaTek Helio P23 and the MediaTek Helio P30 powered smartphones will now be able to use 4G on both the SIM slots. Helio P23 and Helio P30 both are octa core powered clocked at 2.3GHz using 16nm process.
These chipsets are using Mali G71 MP2 GPU, the same on P23 is clocked at 770MHz and on P30 it is clocked at 950MHz. The MediaTek Helio P23 chipset supports 13MP+13MP dual cameras (color + mono / wide + telezoom) and the MediaTek Helio P30 supports 16MP+16MP (color + mono / wide + telezoom) plus with real time depth zoom.
These are high performing chipsets and more power saving. This chipset on paper looks interesting and dual 4G with VoLTE support is definitely going to go well with users. We will have to wait for this, expected in Q4 2017.
With smartphones using P23 / P30 you will be able to use two Jio SIM on a single handset or two 4G SIM’s, together (4G active on both slots).
