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).
MediaTek Helio P22 specifications:
- Processor – 8x Arm Cortex A53 @ up to 2.0 GHz
- GPU – Imagination PowerVR GE8320 GPU @ up to 650MHz
- System Memory – Up to 4GB LPDDR3 @ 933MHz, up to 6GB LPDDR4x @ 1600 MHz
- Storage I/F – eMMC 5.1
- Cellular Technologies – Carrier Aggregation (CA), CDMA2000 1x/EVDO Rev. A (SRLTE), FDD / TDD LTE, HSPA +
- Specific Functions -TAS 2.0, HUPE, IMS (VoLTE\ViLTE\WoWi-Fi), eMBMS,
- Dual 4G VoLTE (DSDS), Band 71
- LTE Category – Cat-4, Cat-7 DL / Cat-13 UL
- GNSS – Beidou, Galileo, Glonass, GPS
- 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac WiFI
- Bluetooth 5.0
- FM Radio
- Display – Up to 1600 x 720 (HD+) resolution
- Encoding – H.264 up to 1080p30
