Update: some new upcoming 2016 phones are going to sport MediaTek MT6797 Helio X20 or MT6797T Helio X25 SoC chipset and here are the top 8 deca-core smartphones:

 

Since the first deca-core processor was announced by MediaTek, a Taiwan-based chip manufacturer, and named with Helio X20 and MT6797 of code name, we are now expecting the release of MT6797 Helio X20 on March 16, 2016 and the first deca-core phones later in the second quarter of 2016. For users who want to buy best budget and most worthy phones in 2016, they can wait for some time for the new deca-core phones, and compare them with best new phones on MWC 2016, or the new smartphones with Snapdragon 820, which is the latest and best quad-core processor from Qualcomm, a USA-based chip maker.

Before listing the top 6 upcoming deca-core smartphones with MT6797 Helio X20, we firstly introduce the specifications and features of MT6797 Helio X20. The deca-core processor, MT6797 Helio X20, applies the Tri-Cluster architecture and includes three clusters: one is with two 2.5GHz Cortex-A72 cores for high performance, one is with four 2.0GHz Cortex-A53 cores for balancing the performance and consumption, and the other is with four 1.4GHz Cortex-A53 cores for low-consumption tasks and saving power. The MT6797 will reportedly offer a 40% boost in performance when compared to the prior MT6795 Helio X10 chips put out by MediaTek.
