MediaTek announces new A-series chipset line for mid-range smartphones

Prasad, 17 July 2018

MediaTek has announced a new series of processors for the burgeoning mid-range smartphone market. Called the A-series, it will be joining MediaTek's P and X-series for more expensive devices.

The first model to be launched in this series is the Helio A22 SoC based on the TSMC 12nm FinFET process. Oddly enough, this chipset was first announced last month when it debuted in the Xiaomi Redmi 6A. It has a quad-core CPU design based on four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.0GHz. The GPU is a PowerVR GE8320.

The A22 is already in production and we can expect more A-series processors later down the line.
