MediaTek Helio P22 SoC with Support of AI, Dual Cameras, 20:9 Display Launched for Affordable Smartphones
MediaTek on Tuesday added a new member to its Helio P system-on-chip family. P22 is the first 12 nm SOC, which will provide many new features to smartphone users. In addition, this new SOC P series will prove to be an important member of SOC, which includes P3, P30, and P60. Here, it is notable that P60 started for mid-range devices in MWC 2018. This new Helio P22 budget is for the smartphone and will be available at the end of the second quarter of 2018. The company has already started its production process. Helio P22 has Cortex A-53 processing units. It will provide support for dual camera set up as well as AI enhancement features.
At the speed of 2.0 GHz, each SOC has eight cores of Cortex-A-53. SOC has the facility of MediaTek Neuropilot for AI features. This will support the general AI framework such as tenerflow, cafe, and cafe2. There will be an Auto Selection facility which will support Face Unlock and Bokay mode, such as Advance AI features. This chip can support dual cameras for a combination of 13 MPs and 8 MPs with 30 MPPS frame rate.
For high auto exposure, the company has embedded it in 3A and CCU (camera control unit). With its capable hardware depth, Helio P22 will bring real-time back bay preview to the budget phone. Another very attractive feature of Helio P22 Chip is the support of 20: 9 aspect ratio with 720×1600 HD + resolution. Here, it is important to mention that smartphone manufacturers are using an 18: 9 aspect ratio on their devices. Helio P22 Bluetooth 5.0, 4-satellite GNSS, and both support 4G LTE on the SIM.
Official sources of the company say that Helio P22 will provide premium facilities at minimal cost. They are constantly expecting device makers to win. The use of Helio P22 will increase the consumer databases of smartphone manufacturers.
Helio P22 is now in volume production and Q2 is expected to be available in consumer devices by the end of 2018. You can expect to see helio P22 powered equipment in markets like India and China and others in the South East Asian region.
