Samsung Exynos 7904 Vs MediaTek Helio P60: Comparison

Samsung Exynos 7904 Vs MediaTek Helio P60 detailed comparison is underway. The movement from a 16nm process technology is one smart move by MediaTek in the Helio chip series. When MediaTek announced the P60 chip in early 2018, it outsmarted other mid-range chipsets such as Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 and 636.

Aside from Qualcomm, MediaTek is one of the world’s most recognised chip maker for Android smartphones with lower budget. Samsung devices are known for their high pricing whether small or big device.

So companies like MediaTek are there to fill this gap by introducing smaller budget chips. In this write-up we shall be making comparisons between Samsung’s Exynos 7904 and MediaTek’s Helio P60 chip which falls in the mid-range SoC set.

Process Technology (nm)

Samsung engineered the Exynos 7904 with a 14nm FinFET process node, while MediaTek engineered thiers using a 12nm FinFET fabrication technique combined with MediaTek’s range of smart technology called ‘Core Pilot 4.0’ which enables for sustainable performance and greater power efficiency. This is a win for MediaTek. The lesser the node, the lesser power it consumes and the more its efficiency.

Samsung Exynos 7904 Vs MediaTek Helio P60

Processor wise, MediaTek does it better with the incorporation of 8 CPU cores consisting of four big Cortex A-73 as well as four smaller Cortex A-53 cores, unlike the Exynos 7904 which has two big A-73 cores and six small Cortex A-53 cores.

The four big cores in MediaTek P60 are clocked up to 2.0GHz for handling high demanding applications, while the four small cores clocks up to 2.0GHz and are responsible for handling little tasks. Whereas, Eynos 7094 harness two big cores clocked at 1.8GHz while the six small cores clocks up to 1.6GHz.

This is another big win for the P60 chip in that it core efficiency are higher than that in the Exynos 7904 and also clock speed is incomparable. This means devices that run on the P60 chip can perform far better than devices running on the Exynos 7904 chip.


The graphics department in the Helio P60 chip incorporates the Mali-G71 MP3 GPU. According to specifications, the Mali–M71 MP3 GPU is made up of 3 clusters, hence the name MP3 and clocks up to 800MHz. Unlike the Exynos 7904 which is made up of Mali-G71 MP2 and harnesses 2 clusters that clocks up to 770MHz. Here, the Helio P60 chip possesses another edging feature over the Exynos 7904 chip.

Samsung Exynos 7904 Vs MediaTek Helio P60: Performance

Camera supported by the MediaTek P60 is 32MP single rear camera and 16+16MP dual camera with ultra fast speeds, while in the Exynos chip, there’s support for triple camera of 24MP single rear camera and 16+16MP dual camera with an additional third camera which Samsung says can handle Panorama at 20:9 display aspect ratio.

There’s not much about the camera but users should be able to experience similar performance from both chips. The Exynos 7904 chip is able to support FullHD +(2400×1800)displays with up to 20:9 aspect display ratio. Video playback for FullHD is at 130FPS, while for Ultra HD is at 30FPS. Whereas, the Helio P60 chip can support displays with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and FullHD +video (2160×1080).


Exynos 7904 can support up to 4GB LPDDR4X RAM, LTE Cat.12 and Cat.13, while the P60 chip supports up to 8GB dual-channel LPDDR4x RAM integrating at 1800MHz, 4G dual SIM LTE Cat.7 and Cat.13.
Here, the Exynos chip performs slightly better

Benchmarks (AnTuTu)

Over at AnTuTu, specifically on the version 6, the 7904 reaches an avg score of 113662, while the Helio P60 reaches an avg score of 145662.
