Companies like Oppo, Vivo, and Meizu have already launched smartphones with this chipset and Xiaomi is the next phone-maker to join the club Helio P60. However, considering the patent infringements, the Xiaomi smartphone based on this chipset is most unlikely to launch in India.MediaTek Helio [...]
MediaTek launched the MediaTek Helio P60 chipset at MWC 2018. The is the most powerful P series chipset from the Chinese chipset manufacturer, which is based on 12nm FinFET architecture. This is the first processor from the brand with native features like hardware accelerated AI and a dedicated NeuroPilot Core.Features:
The processor is manufactured by TSMC based on 12 nm FinFET technology based on big.LITTLE architecture. The four high-performance cores are based on ARM Cortex-A73 cores and the other four efficient cores are based on ARM Cortex-A53 cores. Compared to the Helio P30 chipset, the Helio P60 offers up to 70% improved CPU performance.
The same goes for the [...]
MediaTek is expected to launch a new smartphone chipset the MediaTek Helio P60 at MWC 2018. The MediaTek Helio P60 will be the successor to the MediaTek Helio P30, with improved CPU and GPU processing power.
In fact, the chipset scores on the Geekbench are almost equivalent to the scores of Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Chipset, which is found on the smartphone like the Xiaomi Mi Note 3 and the Vivo X20 Plus UD. However, the Mi Note 3 scores 1775 points on single-core and 6428 points on multi-core performance, which is slightly better than the MediaTek Helio P60.
According to leaks, the chipset comes with the features like AI [...]

MediaTek has announced its latest SoC for budget smartphones called the Helio P20. It will be the direct successor to the company’s Mediatek Helio P10. The new chip is built using SMC’s latest 16nm FinFET Plus (16FF+) process and the company claims, as a result, the Helio P20 will be 25% more energy efficient than its predecessor. It’s also the industry’s first SoC to support LPDDR4X, which is Samsung’s more efficient LPDDR4 RAM.
“MediaTek designed the MediaTek helio P20 to meet today’s consumer demand for sleek, powerful yet highly power efficient mobile devices,” said Jeffrey Ju, Executive Vice President and Co-Chief Operating [...]
It looks like MediaTek’s top of the line offering, the Helio X20 is already running into trouble. This Dec-Core beast which comes with the promise of never before seen power on a smartphone will allegedly bring along with it more heat than it can handle.
The SoC much like the 810 is being accused of producing too much heat, and if industry sources are to be believed, it could be overlooked by manufacturers in the coming months just like the 810 initially when Samsung turned it down because of the overheating issues it brought along with it.
Reports also suggest that the Helio X20 has done so poorly in its [...]
The mobile phone market over the years has grown by leaps and bounds. The evolution of the industry has been so staggering that it has seen hardware once thought only for the elite rich make its way to the pockets of the masses, and this evolution in no way looks to be coming to a halt.
Mediatek which has been at the forefront of this evolution looks set to do more in its aim of giving the masses access to phones with high-end specifications by equipping its low budget processor chips with LTE capability. Mediatek will be bringing to the phone makers three new chipsets, all affordable, and each one of them LTE ready for low budget handsets of the future.
The MT6738 is [...]
HTC has had a tough year, tough decisions and a lot of devices. The company has had the slowest quarter yet and the stock prices have dropped to an all time low. The company also reported a net loss of $258 Million, which points to the fact that the company is not doing well.

Taiwanese chip maker MediaTek is looking to make its presence better known, and to that end, the company has announced its new quad-core MT8135 processor for high-end tablets.
It consists of four cores in total. Two Cortex A15 cores are paired with two Cortex A7 core in ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture. However, unlike the Exynos 5 chipset, the configuration here is called big.LITTLE MP, which allows both Cortex A15 and Cortex A9 clusters to work simultaneously. This makes it essentially a quad core processor (and that is just what MediaTek is touting it as).
The new configuration is [...]
