MediaTek reportedly working on Helio P80, P90 chipsets following success of P60 (UPDATE)

MediaTek reportedly working on Helio P80, P90 chipsets following success of P60 (UPDATE)
MediaTek's P60 chipset provides mid-range handsets with AI capabilities and a bigLITTLE architecture. The SoC features four Cortex-A73 cores running as fast as 2GHz, and four Cortex-A53 cores with a clock speed of 2GHz. An 800MHz Mali-G72 MP3 GPU handles graphics. MediaTek did well with this chip, selling them to companies like Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi. For example, the Oppo F9 has a Helio P60 under the hood.

Now, the chip designer is said to be working on two successors to the P60. According to a tweet from tipster Roland Quandt, MediaTek is working on the Helio P80 and Helio P90. Quandt writes that as far as he knows, there will be no P70. He adds that one of the first customers for the new SoCs will be Oppo.

UPDATE: As pointed out by one of our observant readers, the Helio P70 has been launched by MediaTek earlier this year and powers the Ulefone T2 Pro. The chip features four Cortex-A73 cores running at 2.5GHz, and four Cortex-A53 cores with a clock speed of 2.0GHz.

It would appear that MediaTek has hit its stride providing Helio "P" chips for mid-range devices. The last Helio "X" chip designed by MediaTek for flagship phones, the 10nm X30, launched early last year with a Decacore CPU. Without a successor to the Helio X30, MediaTek might have decided to let other chip makers supply the high-end segment of the smartphone market.

Well, I guess I'm not wrong tho. Oppo do like tasting new processors, either it is from MediaTek or Qualcomm

How is it wrong when you actually buy that phone from online store right in his GSMarena link?
