User1234, 13 Apr 2018Mediatek processor for the android one device will be just like every other smartphone.
Won... moreNot every! Look at Sony or Nokia!
Have you heard about project Treble on Android 8?
Or about GMS Express?
Nevertheless, frequency of 2.2ghz on Tenaa website shows that it will not be P60.
It can be S626, S630 or S660, but not P60
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2018The Helio P60 actually makes a lot of sense. It is fabricated on the 12 nm process , has a mor... moreNo weaker GPU than 636!
Especially on most advanced API, P60 win on opengl 3.1.1 and Vulkan...or on advanced effect like tesselation
Cj, 12 Apr 2018Mediatek chips , it will be fail , expecting with Snapdragon at least 630 . How people can think a Snapdragon 630 will be better than Helio P60?
You can compare to 636 or 660 but definitively not to 630!
Mediatek processor for the android one device will be just like every other smartphone.
Wont get fast update as it will depend on the driver released by the Mediatek which is close to non existant.
Just look at every mediatek device, how many devices got os update
The Helio P60 actually makes a lot of sense. It is fabricated on the 12 nm process , has a more powerful CPU (but a weaker GPU) than SD 636 and also supports Dual 4G VoLTE on both sim cards. It is actually a great mid range chip , way better than SD 625/630.
Not pumped about the battery though :( Guess Xiaomi reserves big battery inly for MiUi phones.
Mediatek chips , it will be fail , expecting with Snapdragon at least 630 .
PriteshThakker, 12 Apr 2018Helio P60 is praised already for having 12nm built and true dual SIM 4G capabilities. This one... moreProject treble makes custom ROM development easier. since it is mandatory to boot GSI to certify project treble.
XDA Developer already booted GSI on mediatek device (without any kernel source) and mediatek device already comes with bootloader unlocked.
moreover xiaomi is not allowed to sell their mobile with mediatek chipset in india hopefully they will release SD version here in india
Helio P60 is praised already for having 12nm built and true dual SIM 4G capabilities. This one might change the game for Mediatek, but then Custom ROM developers are not favoring Mediatek, that is a concern.
In China phone is gonna launch with Helio P60 out of the box Oreo Update.
Globally it will launch with SD660 confirmed with Pure Android.
Only change from Redmi Note 5 Pro will the camera which will be more improved battery would be around 3000mah rest all remains same.
They barely updated the a1
Still on android 8.0 instead of 8.1
8.0 came after 3 months of it being released, and people argue over stock Android and fast updates
Since this is is Android One, it should be way faster
124C4+1, 12 Apr 2018Why didn't Xiaomi offer the A1 with more bands like the Mi 2s?, they would've sold more phones.I just don't get it why omitting some bands in some phones and add it on their flagship phones doesn't make sense while Nokia and some other are giving us wide range of bands
If Mi A2 comes to India with 2,910 mAh battery and Mediatek processor, then it will be the end of Mi A1's success saga and a huge mistake from xiaomi's part.
Anonymous, 12 Apr 2018Aye, it'd be too bad if Mi A2 indeed would use Mediatek. At least it deserves SD 636. The batt... moreP60 is a chip comparable to SD636 which not that bad considering the dual 4g VoLTE which is missing from the snapdragon lineup.
Anonymous, 12 Apr 2018could it be the succesor of Max series?Maybe it about Mi Max 3 because GizmoChina already posted a leaks about Mi Max 3 case. But its maybe about Mi 6X aka Mi A2 because it been recently certified by TENNA.
