MediaTek has been struggling lately, especially when it comes to higher mid-range or high-end segment. The Helio X30 was expected to be a very powerful chipset, but the end results are not very good, while the company has announced two new mid-range chipsets last month, the Helio P23 and P30.
Both chipsets will be commercially available in Q4 2017 and MediaTek has already started working on their successors. According to leaked information, the company is working on a Helio P40 chipset that will be the first chipset built on the 12nm manufacturing process. It will have an octa-core processor and launch in the first half of 2018.
