Taiwanese Semiconductor Company MediaTek released the Helio X20 chip in May 2015. It was speculated that the Helio X20 chipset will be ready and available to the smartphone manufacturing companies by the end of 2015.
These assumptions seemed valid when rumors of Elephone P9000 utilizing Helio X20 chip surfaced. It was alleged that this smartphone will be the first one to employ the X20 chip. However, at its launch, Elephone P9000 sported Helio P10 augmented with an 8-core CPU.
The latest news from AnTuTu has revived the hopes of smartphone users about the release of the first Helio X20 featuring handset. The news suggests that the next Meizu flagship, Meizu MX6 will be the first device to sport MediaTek Helio X20 chip.

The remaining speculated features include Android 6.0 Marshmallow base along with MediaTek’s Flyme UI and 32GB of internal storage. The device will also support 4G LTE connectivity. More leaks are being expected in near future regarding the detailed specs of MX6.
Meizu MX5 was released back in June 2015. In accordance, it is being said that the upcoming Meizu MX6 will be launched in the mid of 2016.
Since Helio X20 will be accessible, smartphone producers are expected to release their handsets featuring this chip in the forthcoming weeks. The Helio X20 is the first processor to flaunt a 3 cluster layout and the current standards suggest that it will be quite efficient.
