    • I believe Helios G90T is the lastest mediatek processor chipset which is even better than snapdragon 730. It can allow you to connect to 2 wifi internet at the same time, support up to 64mp camera and even prevent online games from disconnecting when there is an incoming call which even the lastest snapdragon 855 can’t do. So i think it is good idea from xiaomi.
