MediaTek today announced the launch of the Helio P22, the latest addition to the Helio family of powerful and power-efficient chips for the mid-range smartphones.
The Helio P22 is in volume production now, and is expected to be available in consumer devices by the end of Q2 2018.
MediaTek Helio P22 is the first to bring the 12 nm manufacturing process to the mid-range mobile segment. The MediaTek Helio P22, combined with P60 and previously introduced P23 and P30 chipsets, gives MediaTek a robust portfolio to meet mid-tier market demands.
With P22, MediaTek offers the benefits of AI-accelerated experiences, brilliant photography and reliable, high-speed connectivity to even more affordably priced devices, expanding the “New Premium” market.
TL Lee, General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communication said, “With support for high quality dual camera photography, AI enhancements and incredible power efficiency, the Helio P22 sets a new bar for accessibility to premium features. We expect continued device maker wins and consumer growth in this segment with MediaTek’s new Helio P22 chipset.”
Helio P22 also supports incredible photography and outstanding connectivity on dual 4G SIM cards. The chipset’s octa-core Arm Cortex A53 processors operate up to 2.0 GHz and offer sustainable high CPU performance while requiring low power inputs.
With MediaTek Helio P22, users will benefit from Edge AI enhancements powered by MediaTek NeuroPilot. With support for common AI frameworks (TensorFlow, TF Lite, Caffe and Caffe2) and an auto-select function for the best available AI resource for developer efficiency, Helio P22 delivers the benefits of AI at a remarkably affordable price. AI accelerated camera experiences including Face ID, smart photo album and single-camera as well as dual-camera depth of field features are all supported.
Users can enjoy the fast LTE connectivity on both SIM cards, and 802.11ac WiFi for high Internet throughputs. MediaTek Helio P22 also supports BT5.0, the latest version of the Bluetooth wireless communication standard, and a 4-Satelltie system GNSS allows for faster, more efficient and more accurate connectivity locally and globally.
