Smartphone Alcatel Idol 5S will get a MediaTek SoC Helio P20, then there will not be more productive predecessor
Smartphone Alcatel Idol 4S (pictured) at the time left a generally good impression, standing out some original solutions, but not positioned as a competitor to the more famous flagships.
The device was presented at the end of February last year, so we can expect the imminent appearance of a successor. And he appeared. However, while not officially, but as the data in the database of Geekbench.
Unfortunately, it does not give complete data on the parameters of the device, but we already know that the base of the product will lie SoC MediaTek Helio P20. Recall that in the configuration of this SoC includes eight cores Cortex-A53 with a frequency of up to 2.3 GHz and GPU Mali-T880, MP2. Recall also that Idol 4S based on Snapdragon 652. Clearly Qualcomm is more productive in games, but the novelty MediaTek is available for 16-nanometer process technology, and thus should be significantly more economical competitor. In General, however, the jump in performance from the change of generations the flagship smartphone Alcatel is not expected, but, quite possibly, Idol 5S at the start of sales will be cheaper predecessor.
Also indicates the presence of 3 GB of RAM, but most likely will be a version with 4 GB. The test sample was running Android 7.0, which is good news.
