The Taiwanese chipmaker MediaTek has made the mid-range Helio P23 and P30 chipsets official.

The report claims that alongside the Helio P25, the P23 and P30 chipsets form what MediaTek has called as the premium "mid-range" line-up. The MediaTek Helio P23 will be available globally in the fourth quarter of 2017, while the Helio P30 will launch first in China. MediaTek Helio P23 chipset features support for 13+13 megapixel dual-camera setups, while MediaTek Helio P30 chipset supports up to 16+16 megapixels. Another major difference is that the Helio P23 is only capable of handling dual 13MP cameras or a single 24MP camera, but the Helio P30 can handle two 16MP or a single 25MP camera.

MediaTek's Imagiq 2.0 technology will assist global smartphone makers to minimize aliasing, grain and noise, reduce chromatic aberration and more - resulting in clear, crisp, high-quality images across a number of lighting conditions.

Additionally, a new hardware Camera Control Unit (CCU) - with auto exposure convergence speed up to twice as fast as competitors. It performs real-time processing functions that were typically assigned to the CPU or GPU, but at a tenth of the power usage.

That said, the Helios P23 can handle dual Voice over LTE (VoLTE), meaning you can have two 4G SIM cards in your phone with both delivering high-definition audio via VoLTE instead of having 4G for one and relying on 2G for the other.

MediaTek said TAS 2.0 (Transmitting Antenna Switching) smart antenna technology enhances performance and user experience, by using the best antenna combination to provide optimal signal quality. The Helio P23 has a clock speed of 770MHz, while the Helio P30 features a clock speed of 950MHz.

Apart from these, both SoC packages come with an octa-core processor comprised of ARM Cortex-A53 cores with the maximum clock frequency of ~2.3GHz. The chipsets come with Cat-7/13 modem, which offers a 300Mbps download and 150Mbps upload speed.
