With an aim to target the affordable smartphones segments, chipmaker has launched its series family. The Helio family chipset comes with the company’s new 22 system-on-chip (SoC) aimed at the mid-market consumer.

Building on the Helio P20, P22, P23 and P60 chipsets, MediaTek Helio A series, will bring a greater number of consumers to access to high-performance devices without a premium price tag, claimed company in a statement.

With quad-core performance, camera features, AI and power efficiency, the Helio A series is optimized for devices that offer a good value without sacrificing modern capabilities and features.

“As we’ve seen, mid-market growth continues to explode and there continues to be consumer interest in powerful and quality devices that offer them the best value,” said TL Lee, General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communication business unit at MediaTek.

“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,” Lee said.

According to MediaTek, the Helio A22 is built with 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,” said the company.

MediaTek’s Helio A22 offers good camera capabilities with AI enhancements. The chipset supports up to 13+8 megapixels dual-camera setups at 30 frames per second (FPS) and a single camera operating mode of up to 21 megapixels. Device makers can create large-screen devices with the Helio A22’s 20:9 HD+ display support, said the company.

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.

Helio A22 comes with 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 custom design flexibility.

The company claimed that the Helio A22’s GNSS location enhancements enable 57 percent faster TTFF, a 10 percent improvement in accuracy and up to 24 percent lower power operation compared to previous generation chipsets. With 802.11 ac Wi-Fi, MediaTek’s Helio A22 offers higher bandwidth and throughput, resulting in improved online gaming, multimedia and communications experiences for users. Also, the chipset supports BT5.0 for longer transport distance and higher speeds suitable for smart home devices.
