Oppo R19 will become the first smartphone using MediaTek Helio P80 chipset


MediaTek is working hard on making the best ARM processors out there. The company is now working to bring its newest and best upper-midrange chipset at the moment. MediaTek might call this chipset as the Helio P80. It will arrive with tons of improvements in comparison to the Helio P70 in the market. It’s important to note that the Helio P80 was second to only the top of the line Snapdragon 8150, which is expected to power almost every 2019 Android flagship.

The first smartphone in the market that will come up with this new offering from MediaTek is Oppo. Rumors speak that Oppo will use the Helio P80 SoC on the upcoming R19, in the coming future.

We expect the Helio P80 SoC to arrive with the TSMC’s12nm process. Besides that, it will be an octa-core CPU using ARM’s cores, while the GPU may be an upgrade in comparison to the P60/P70. We hope a lot of midrangers to arrive with the same MediaTek’s offering, in the year 2019.
