In the recently concluded Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, MediaTek unveiled its latest system-on-chip dubbed as the Helio P60, the first SoC platform featuring a multi-core AI processing unit. It’s packaged together with MediaTek’s Neuropilot AI technology. The Taiwanese company claims that the package delivers up to a 70 percent CPU performance boost over Helio P23 and Helio P30 used by mid-range phones Vernee and Gionee, respectively.
As high-end phones break the P50,000 price-point, these Helio-centric phones will represent the ‘new premium’ with price points between the P20,000 to P30,000. These new mid-range phones will tout impressive performance, increased efficiency and improved battery life. It’ll be a compelling option for the emerging middle-class Pinoy.
High-end phones beware.
