Expanding its "Helio P" family of power-efficient chips for mid-range devices, mobile phone chipmaker MediaTek on Tuesday launched Helio P22 processor in India. The MediaTek Helio P22 is the first chipset to bring the 12nm manufacturing process to the mid-range mobile segment.

"With support for high-quality dual camera photography, AI enhancements and incredible power efficiency, Helio P22 sets a new bar for accessibility to premium features," TL Lee, General Manager, Wireless Communication Business Unit, MediaTek, said in a statement.

With the P22 chipset, the chip maker will offer the benefits of Artificial Intelligence (AI) accelerated experiences, improved photography and reliable, high-speed connectivity to more affordable devices, thus, expanding the "new premium" market.

"We expect continued device maker wins and consumer growth in this segment with MediaTek's new Helio P22 chipset," Lee added.

The Helio P22 chip also brings hardware-driven dual-camera support for 13+8 megapixel setups at 30 frames per second (FPS). Additionally, the chipset brings 20:9 HD+ (1600 x 720) display support. For connectivity, the P22 will support Bluetooth 5.0, dual SIM cards, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

With a low-power, highly capable hardware depth engine for real-time Bokeh preview, the chipset is equipped to minimise grain, noise, aliasing and chromatic aberration. According to MediaTek, the Helio P22 is in volume production now, and is expected to be available in consumer devices by the end of Q2 2018.
