Meizu decides to go for Mediatek’s Helio P40 chipset


According to new rumors, Meizu plans to invest on Mediatek’s upcoming Helio P40 SoC, a next gen SoC that features a hexacore design and will be built on TSMC’s new 12nm process.

According to Weibo user (@冷希), several samples have been sent to customers to test and they’ve found their first customer in Meizu, with the first devices of the Chinese manufacturer to arrive in Q1 2018. 

In case you forgot, the Meizu Pro 7 Plus flagship was the first in the world to rely on Mediatek’s Helio X30 chipset, and we expect more mid-range models of the company to use the P40 chipset – when it’s available. This SoC is expected to rival the upcoming Snapdragon 670 SoC, which should be available in smartphones in Q1 2018 as well.

    Meh… X30 will me be rival S670 & even that in only some aspects while P40 really won’t.

      yep agreed. MTK flagship is always Qualcomm Upper Mid Range.
