MediaTek Helio P22 SoC for “Mid Range Premium” Smartphones Relies on 12nm Manufacturing Process

Orange Pi Development Boards

MediaTek already has plenty of Arm Cortex A53 processors in their portfolio, but with MediaTek Helio P22 they’ve now added another one.

One of the selling point of the new processor is that it is manufactured using a 12nm manufacturing process, just like the recently announced Helio P60 SoC, which better performance for the similar power consumption thanks to a higher CPU clock (2.0 GHz).

It is nonsense that the max resolution is 720p, that belngs to very low budget socs like mt6580. I also don’t understand why it does not encode in 4k, it is quite strange as well since from this year any middle range premium soc would do that. I know any of those are really important, but this soc seems more low range than middle range. A53 is getting soon its last breathe, it would be a bad practice to still release A53-only socs in 2019, only ultralow budgets would have to do that next year. The rest should move to A55 asap.
