MediaTek is still struggling to get closer and closer to the popularity of the Snapdragon processors, and it’s something they’re getting slowly but surely. After a hiatus of a couple of years, we now know that MediaTek processors would return to the new Xiaomi phones that we will surely see this year, as in the case of the Xiaomi Mi A2 processor .
A few weeks ago we echoed which manufacturers were going to rely on the new processor Helio P60 from MediaTek , among those who were Xiaomi, we now know that MediaTek will also be the most powerful mid-range processor that is in Chinese phones.
Xiaomi had always been one of the firms that had trusted in MediaTek, in fact the optimization of its MIUI layer with its processors has always worked very well, and has been a big part of the success of the mid-range of the Chinese firm in the latter. years. But since 2016 there is no processor of this manufacturer among Xiaomi phones, something that will probably change in 2018. All according to the information that comes from China and has its origin in the CEO of the Asian firm.
This would have seen in the potential of new MediaTek mid-range processors a good opportunity to re-collaborate with the processor manufacturer. And all the information points to what would be the Xiaomi Mi 6X and Mi A2 that would release the new processors . Two processors, the Helio P60 and P70 that have shown excellent performance in the tests they have gone through. These processors are manufactured in the process of 12nm, have Cortex A73 cores at a speed of 2GHz, and the GPU is a G72, so we talk about processors of important features.
In fact in some of the performance tests that we have seen the Helio P70 hits the results , to give an example, of Samsung Galaxy S8 in AnTuTu with the Snapdragon 835 processor, staying only about six thousand points apart. So there’s the possibility that let’s see the Xiaomi Mi 6X with some of the new Helio P60 and P70 , something that would also inherit the processor of the Xiaomi Mi A2. Although there is also the possibility that there are two versions, as in the past, one with the Helio for Asia, and another with the Snapdragon for the West.
