A Step Forward for the New Premium: MediaTek’s Helio P22

We’re continuing to see booming demand for “New Premium” devices that offer cutting-edge features at an affordable price. Consumers in India and China are snapping up Oppo and Vivo’s new feature-rich smartphones powered by MediaTek’s Helio P60, unveiled earlier this year. To meet mid-tier market demands, MediaTek is introducing the newest member of our Helio line of powerful and power-efficient chips: the Helio P22.

AI-accelerated experiences. Brilliant photography. Reliable, high speed connectivity. The Helio P22 is setting a new bar for accessibility to premium features. As the first chipset to bring the 12nm manufacturing process to mid-range handsets, the Helio P22 delivers sustainable high performance and outstanding power savings.

Consumers can enjoy AI accelerated camera experiences like Face ID, smart photo albums, and single-camera as well as dual-camera depth of field, powered by MediaTek’s advanced NeuroPilot technology. With dual-camera support for 13+8 megapixel setups at a fast 30 frames per second (FPS), you can snap beautiful, crisp photos on the move. And you can stay connected globally with the fast LTE connectivity on both SIM cards, and 802.11ac WiFi for high Internet throughputs.

The chipset’s octa-core Arm Cortex A53 processors offer sustainable high CPU performance while requiring low power inputs. With MediaTek’s CorePilot technology, the chipset delivers the power you need while conserving your smartphone’s battery life.
