The Helio X30 is entering mass production and should make its debut inside a mobile device sometime in Q2 2017.

The Mid cluster still uses 4 A53 cores, but they receive a 10% frequency boost relative to the top-of-the-line Helio X27. In the X30’s Min cluster we find the first implementation of ARM’s most-efficient A-series core. The A35 consumes...
