The Helio P60 was first announced during the Mobile World Congress 2018. Since then, the Helio P60 has been used in a lot of AI-related smartphones this year including devices from OPPO and Vivo. Unfortunately, this chipset is still lacking in other departments unlike the Helio P22 which is AI-capable. Due to this, the company decided to upgrade the current Helio P20 chip.
TL Lee, MediaTek’s Head of Communications Product Business Unit, mentioned that the company’s research and development efforts are mostly focused on the mid-range and high-end Helio P chips with AI capabilities. Some sources has also stated that the chip might be released by the second half of this year.
