MediaTek unveiled its deca-core (ten-core) Helio X20 SoC back in May, and the company is enthusiastic about the chip’s low power consumption (30 to 40 percent lower, thanks both to its architecture and MediaTek’s own CorePilot algorithm). We initially heard that the SoC might be mass produced by the end of year, but, thanks to today’s leak, it might be sooner.

Elephone, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, is apparently gearing up for an October 20 debut of its upcoming Elephone 9000 device, which might be the first ten-core smartphone on the market. Expected to retail for around $500, the phone might be the first device to be powered by MediaTek’s Helio X20 processor. The chip has a tri-cluster architecture, and contains two Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2.5GHz, four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2GHz, and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.4GHz for power efficiency.

The Mali-T800 GPU will be helping out the CPU with rendering data on a 5.5-inch Full HD screen. Other specs include 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 20.7MP main camera, eight-megapixel front-facer, 3,100mAh battery, and Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box.

Are these specs high-end enough for you to consider this, or a similarly beefed up device?
