MediaTek had launched the Helio P60 SoC during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 tech expo in February. It is currently present under the hood of phones like OPPO R15 and OPPO F7. The upcoming Meizu 15 Lite may also feature the same SoC. A report from last week had claimed that the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 6X may feature the Snapdragon 626. However, fresh information reveals that it could be powered by Helio P60 SoC.
According to the TENAA listing of the Xiaomi Mi 6X, it is driven by an octa-core processor that clocks 2.2 GHz. Even though earlier reports had claimed that the Mi 6X would be featuring the new Snapdragon 636 SoC, a recent report had claimed that it may feature the older Snapdragon 626 chipset under its hood. New rumors claim that the Mi 6X has Helio P60 onboard. However, there is no concrete evidence that supports this claim. A recent report had revealed that the SD636 powered Redmi Note 5 Pro and Helio P60 driven OPPO F7 deliver similar performance on benchmarks.
