MediaTek indicated that following the success of its Helio P series SoCs, the company decided to launch the new Helio A series to bring in “an even greater number of consumers access to high performance devices without a premium price tag.”

The Helio A22 chip pairs four ARM Cortex-A53’s operating up to a clock speed of 2.0GHz with an IMG PowerVR GE-class GPU, and either high-speed LPDDR4x Random Access Memory or cost-efficient LPDDR3.

“Also coming with advanced camera features, and AI and power efficiency enhancements, the Helio A series is optimized for devices that offer a great value without sacrificing modern capabilities and features” – MediaTek said.

The Helio A22 was built using the 12nm FinFET fabrication technology and also MediaTek CorePilot technology at the heart of the SoC providing a power aware scheduling, thermal management and also UX monitoring to assign the right workload to CPU cores at a specific frequency and voltage. The Helio A22 also has AI features to take advantage of the MediaTek NeuroPilot software development kit (SDK) extensions and third-party AI applications.

In addition, MediaTek’s Helio A22 also 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 also create large-screen devices with the Helio A22’s 20:9 HD+ display support.

The chipset family also supports the latest AI frameworks, which includes Google Android Neural Networks API (Android NNAPI), so developers can seamlessly build AI applications for the Helio A22-powered devices.

The Helio A series is in volume production now with the availability of the Helio A22-powered Xiaomi Redmi 6A in China, according to MediaTek.

We are in for some fantastic low-cost devices.
