Is the Elephone S8 featuring the Helio X27 SoC worth waiting?

In December MediaTek added the High-end Helio X27 to its Deca-Core SoC family. This powerful Helio X27 chipset will also appear in the new smartphone by Elephone, the Elephone S8. In terms of appearance, the Elephone S8 is much more stunning than others. The crazy-beautiful edgeless display is incredible and almost covers the entire face of the phone. The curved glass cover gives the phone a luxurious high-end feel. Besides, it is said that the camera and fingerprint designs of elephone S8 are formed with a breaking innovation.

But, what can a Helio X27 processor do?

Uncompromised Performance in Games
The display can be refreshed at up to 120 fps for crisp and responsive scrolling of web content and maps and with an ARM Mali-T880 MP4 GPU up to 875MHz, it yields uncompromised performance in games with high-resolution graphics.

Dual-cameras– Depth of field, Less image noise
The MediaTek Helio X27 is designed for smartphones with a dual-camera setup and includes color and mono sensor support. This multiple-sensor design can capture three times the light of a traditional sensor, thus reducing image noise and increasing quality. It features a built-in 3D depth engine for depth of field processing as well as multi-scale de-noise engines for faster response time between shots and unprecedented detail, color, and sharpness. Even under extreme conditions.

Tri-cluster– Smoother performance, Longer battery life
With three clusters, the processor can delegate simple tasks to one cluster of cores, while directing more complex (and more power-hungry) tasks to the other clusters. For example, if the smartphone is doing only simple tasks, such as sending text messages or running the calculator on one cluster, the other clusters can power down ready for when required, therefore, driving both smoother, responsive performance and an extended battery life. In addition, the MediaTek Helio X27 includes the latest MiraVision EnergySmart Screen to further enhance power efficiency by 25%.

Undoubtedly, the Elephone S8 will be a very much expected device in 2017.
