Redmi 6A should be cheaper than 5A and that would make it numero uno

I don’t know what problem people have with MediaTek…
I would love to see Redmi 6A with Helios A22 rather than crappy SD425…
Helio A22 has better architecture at 12nm…
Similarly P22 is way better than SD450 anyday…
Redmi Note 6 Pro should be launched with rumoured P90 instead of some SD processor…
Most of the other phones in 10-15k price range are half cooked except for Xiaomi right now…

How about Snapdragon 710?

Process node and microarchitecture are separate things. Also process node in current time is a commercial name rather than gate length or half pitch. TSMC 12nm (12FFC) was originally intended to be released as the 4th Gen 16 nm process, as it is practically 16FF+ with a tighter metal pitch. In order to avoid the repeat of unfavorable comparisons with 14 nm nodes from competing foundries on the basis of nomenclature alone, TSMC decided to name it 12nm instead.
