Xiaomi, OPPO and Meizu have reached an agreement with MediaTek to ship the new MediaTek Helio P60 processor in their equipment. The new chip from the Chinese brand was unveiled at Mobile World Congress and surprised by the performance and price requested by manufacturers.
MediaTek may not even have the best reputation ever for its processors. The brand has been dedicated for many years to the low-end from China and has been losing credibility.

Software upgrades were also far from the best. As you know, when Android updates, the update must also go through the processor and then the manufacturer.
But in recent years MediaTek has considerably improved these "details". The Asian chip company has partnered with OPPO, Xiaomi and Meizu to integrate its Helio P60 into their smartphone.
Xiaomi and OPPO take a chance on MediaTek processors again
This processor is equivalent to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, so you can expect quality performance. By way of comparison, the Nokia 7 Plus is one that uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon 660.
We still don't know which Xiaomi smartphone will use the Helio P60 processor, but it is believed that Oppo will bring the P60 to its R15.
It is 2018 and with the mobile evolution of the last years I can say that it is already safe to buy a terminal with a MediaTek processor. Just note that, like Qualcomm's, MediaTek has a wide range of chips. Before you choose a terminal with the branded processor, take a look at the feedback from the processor that ships it.
