Xiaomi to Launch a New Device Powered by Helio P60 SoC, But Won’t Come to India

Published

on

After the disappointing performance the Helio X20 and X30 chips among smartphone makers, the MediaTek decided to stop making the flagship chipsets. Instead, the company started focussing on the Mid range chipsets. Hence, as a result, the company is said to launch a few more chipsets along with the Helio P60 in the upcoming days.

The chipsets are said to power up mid range smartphones. However, talking about the Helio P60 chipset already has been used on the OPPO R15 smartphone. Also, the sale of the OPPO R15 is scheduled for sale in China on the first April.

However, according to some new reports, it is expected that the Chinese manufacturing company Xiaomi is also going to use the Helio P60 chipset for one of its smartphones. The smartphone with the chipset might launch in the second quarter of the year.

The report came from a Taiwanese supply chain, and it also mentions that Vivo will launch an Helio P60 powered smartphone in Q2 as well. Also, some other report suggests that Lenovo’s VP also talked about the Helio P60 chipset. So there is a high chance that we might also get to see a Lenovo device powering the same chipset. As well as there might a Meizu device with the same Helio P60 chipset.

Hence, as a result, MediaTek’s going to make quite a lot of revenue in the Q2. Also if we look at the current condition of the company, then this is a sign of recovery for them.

Talking about the chipset, the MediaTek Helio P60 is built on TSMC’s 12nm FinFET process. This reduces the power consumption by 15%. The chipset is also clocked at 2.0GHz uses four Cortex A73 cores with a 2.0GHz clock speed, and four Cortex-A53 cores also clocked at 2.0GHz.

Anyways, the phone won’t be coming to India, as Xiaomi is banned from releasing any device powered by Mediatek in India from an earlier court order in a legal battle with Ericsson.

Windows mobile

When Nokia launched the Lumia range of smartphones running on the Windows operating system years ago, they made quiet a wave. Later, Microsoft took over and continued the production of the Lumia from Nokia. The Lumia range of smartphones did find a lot of buyers and had some of the finest smartphones of the time.

But, Microsoft couldn’t keep up with the Android and iOS trends and eventually died out. Now reports states that Microsoft is preparing to end support for the Windows 10 Mobile by the end of this year.

Microsoft has asked the users of Windows 10 mobiles to switch to an Android or iOS device as it announced the end of support for Windows 10 Mobile. The news doesn’t come as a surprise as Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President of Windows 10, had made clear that they wont be focusing on new features or hardware for Windows 10 Mobile back in 2017.

In an “End of Support” page, the tech giant told users that Windows 10 Mobile will stop receiving new security updates after December 10. While the news was expected, it comes as a blow as several peoples are still using the windows mobile across the world, owing to its build quality and performance.

“With the Windows 10 Mobile OS end of support, we recommend that customers move to a supported Android or iOS device. Microsoft’s mission statement to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more, compels us to support our Mobile apps on those platforms and devices,” the company wrote in the support page late on Friday.

The New York City Police Department (NYPD) scrapped as many as 36,000 windows mobiles used by the law enforcers back in 2017 after Microsoft acknowledged that it’s support will be ending. In an other statement, Microsoft also made clear that their Virtual Assistant Cortana is no longer in direct competition with Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa.
