MediaTek Helio X20

MediaTek recently announced Helio X20 SoC, which you might have heard of on various blogs as the "10-core SoC. Perhaps more notable than having 10 CPU cores, is it's "Tri-Cluster" design in what amounts to a 4-4-2 layout. The idea behind this to have essentially a "low, medium and high" performance modes.The GPU, while an upgrade over their previous model, shouldn't be anything special.
 
On the modem side, which I know holds a special special place for many here, is LTE Cat.6 with 2x20 CA support. Of particular interest is that it supports CDMA 2k and something called SRLTE, which I am not familiar with, but an internet search sugguests that it is Simulatneous 1XRTT and LTE. 
 
As a reminder, this part is designed to compete against the Snapdragon 6XX, not the 8XX that we're used to seeing.

I doubt we'll see this in the USA. It seems mediatek is not all that interested in the USA market, they're killing it in Asia though.

Of course they're interested in the US market, I doubt they'll have much success over here, but that doesn't mean they aren't interested.

      Not sure if this has come up elsewhere, regarding the Moto X/M leak a few weeks ago (just move it if it has), but I can't seem to find any information on the SOC that is being reported. Only thing I seem to find is that it's Cat-6 compatible, but it doesn't appear that this chipset is used in any existing Sprint phones (or other US phone, seems only to be overseas) to get an idea of how well the radios work and what the connectivity would be like.

      Obviously, it would only have 2-band CA as well as other limitations, but do we have anything comparable to this to give us an idea if we should be watching for a mid-range phone that will be hitting above its weight class? Or should we all just suck it up and go with the next Nexus and the Snapdragon 82X? I'm really gunning for the 4.6" Moto, but if the reception is lacking (whether LTE or WiFi), or it's not Sprint LTE Plus compatible, I'd rather just not waste my time. I'm still rocking my 2013 Moto X, I just really wish it were LTE Plus at this point, with a little bit better RAM management.
