MediaTek Helio A22 pairs four ARM Cortex-A53's operating up to a super-fast 2.0GHz with an IMG PowerVR GE-class GPU, and either high-speed LPDDR4x memory or cost-efficient LPDDR3. CPU performance is up to 30% faster and GPU up to an incredible 72% faster than the direct alternative. This provides a highly capable mainstream smartphone platform that’s first-to-market using an ultra-efficient fabrication process.

It means desirable, all-screen smartphones for everyone; allowing up to HD+ (1600 x 720) resolution displays and a 20:9 ratio that offers a great balance between sharpness and power-efficiency.

MediaTek CorePilot technology at its heart provides power aware scheduling, thermal management and UX monitoring, assigning the right workload to CPU cores at a specific frequency and voltage; perfectly matching the required performance with best power efficiency. This allows a sustained high-performance and consistently reliable user-experience.

In addition - a new upgrade for the segment - its tiny, ultra-low power sensor hub is ideal for apps that require always-on sensor readings (pedometers or vocal-triggers), without having to engage the main CPU complex, providing significant power savings.

The MediaTek Helio A22 is an incredible generational upgrade of mainstream smartphones; pushing up the bar on features and the boundaries of longer battery life.

Light Edge AI: Real-time, Privacy-focused & Power Efficient

Lightweight edge AI capabilities includes exciting features such as Face ID (Face Unlock), Smart Photo Album and advanced single or dual-camera Bokeh effects to photography.

With MediaTek NeuroPilot developers and device makers have the best possible ecosystem, with support for many common AI frameworks and full compliance with Android Neural Networks API (Android NNAPI).

Rich Multimedia and Advanced Dual Camera Capability

MediaTek Helio A22 turns up the dial on essential smartphone experiences such as photography and video capture by bringing premium, advanced dual-camera capabilities to everyone.

It's big 13+8MP dual camera system with twin ISP can capture professional-grade photos with Depth of Field (Bokeh) effects, while a single camera mode of up to 21MP also supports Bokeh through help from its clever AI ability.

The MediaTek Helio A22 has incredible low-light performance, multi-frame noise reduction and a clear-image zoom technology. Further, the Imagiq capture suite includes enhancements that automatically minimize aliasing, grain, and provides defect/distortion correction techniques. 3A includes MediaTek’s Instant Auto Exposure (AE): anti-over exposure hardware with accurate point focusing.

Dual 4G SIM Support & Rich Smart Home Connectivity

MediaTek’s latest generation 4G LTE WorldMode modem brings dual 4G SIM support with VoLTE/ViLTE to capable, mainstream Android devices, such as the MediaTek Helio A22. It focuses on a highly power-efficient design capable of Cat-7 (DL) 4G LTE speeds, while MediaTek’s TAS 2.0 smart antenna technology uses the best antenna combination to provide optimal signal quality at lowest power use. For the North American market, the latest 600MHz band is also supported.

Connectivity upgrades from the previous generation include multi-GNSS options (GPS, Glonass, Beidou, Galileo) with core-enhancements providing 57% improvement in Hot TTFF, 10% accuracy improvement and up to 24% lower power operation thanks to a new, dedicated sub-processor. For the latest Smart Home devices, Bluetooth 5 is available sporting up to 2X speeds and 4X range and 8X broadcast capacity over the previous generation. BT and Wi-Fi (now 802.11ac) simultaneous co-existence can provide up to 5X Wi-Fi throughput boost over the previous generation.
