With the upcoming launch of the Helio P90, MediaTek seems to be skipping out on the P80, owing to a vast change in performance and features which will be accompanied with the launch of the new SoC. Upon its release, the P90 is expected to compete against the likes of Huawei’s Kirin 980 or the upcoming Snapdragon 8150.
That means, we can expect the Helio P90 to be manufactured on a better process than TSMC’s 12nm architecture. MediaTek’s announcement comes just days away from Qualcomm’s upcoming event which is set to be held on December 4. TheHelio P90 processor will be introduced at an event in Shenzhen, China on December 13.
The news arrives just a month after MediaTek revealed the Helio P70 which is built on the latest TSMC 12nm FinFET process. The Helio P70 incorporates four 2.1GHz Cortex-A73 CPUs, four 2GHz A53 octa-core CPUs and Mali-G72 graphics. In contrast to its predecessor, the chipset offers 13 percent better performance with support for taller 20:9 Full HD+ displays at a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels.
