MediaTek has unveiled its Helio A series, expanding its Helio family of feature-packed and power-efficient chipsets with the company’s new Helio A22 system-on-chip (SoC) to meet the demands of mid-market consumer.
Building on the success of the Helio P20, P22, P23 and P60 chipsets, MediaTek is introducing the Helio A series, bringing an even greater number of consumers access to high performance devices without a premium price tag. With powerful quad-core performance, incredible camera features, AI enhancements and remarkable power efficiency, the Helio A series is optimized for devices that offer a great value without sacrificing modern capabilities and features.
TL Lee, General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communication business unit at MediaTek said, “With Helio A22, device makers can bring to market innovative devices that provide consumers unparalleled mobile experiences in the mid-range, including incredible performance, long battery life and advanced photography and AI enhancements.”
The Helio A22 is built with advanced 12nm FinFET fabrication technology to deliver high performance with greater power efficiency. Equipped with MediaTek’s CorePilot technology, the chipset optimizes power for each task to extend device battery life, enabling users to do more with their devices for longer. Helio A22 also has AI features to take advantage of the MediaTek NeuroPilot software development kit (SDK) extensions and third-party AI applications.
The chipset supports the latest AI frameworks, including Google Android Neural Networks API (Android NNAPI), so developers can seamlessly build AI applications for Helio A22-powered devices.
Advanced connectivity is at the heart of the Helio A22 with an innovative RF design for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi co-existence. The chipset both Cat-4 and Cat-7 4G LTE performs for fast connectivity and packs a dual 4G SIM with VoLTE and ViLTE. Also A22 supports both LPDDR3 and the newer, faster LPDDR4 for more customer design flexibility.
The Helio A Series is in volume production now.
