SoC MediaTek Helio P40 to compete with a single-chip system Snapdragon 660 Lite
For the first time on SoC MediaTek Helio P40 we spoke at the beginning of last month. Then the source claimed that this platform will have six processing cores and will be manufactured for 12-nanometer process technology.
Later, there were other rumors, according to which a new SOC still remain eight cores, like its predecessor.
New data also indicate that 12-nanometer process technology and OCTA core CPU. It is reported that Helio P40 should help MediaTek to increase its market share, as it will be cheaper than the main competitor. More specifically, Helio P40 supposedly will cost 11-12 dollars, and a kind of Snapdragon SoC 660 Lite — $ 15. And it’s interesting, because no Snapdragon 660 Lite we don’t know, and so Qualcomm’s mobile platform does not call. What is hidden under this name is unclear.
Contracts for the purchase of Helio P40 ostensibly has already signed the company Oppo, Meizu and Xiaomi. Delivery of the new platform is scheduled to start next year, but a more exact date yet.
