MediaTek announces Helio P22, the first mid-range chipset built on a 12nm process

22 May 2018
It comes with an octa-core CPU with Cortex-A53 cores clocked up to 2 GHz.

Sort by:

I have no issues with this chipset at all. If compared to yesteryear mid range chipsets like Hisilicon's Kirin 620, or most of the Mediatek's MT65-- or MT67-- (Non-Helio) Series, the P22 is definitely more powerful. Other than that, it's really good on battery life. Mediatek are trying but people here are to quick to shut them down. I think the Helio and the Dimensity Series have provided a new platform of performance. And even though the Mali or IMG PowerVR GPUs that they use in most of these chipsets won't generally compete with Qualcomm Snapdragon's Adreno Series, they're still getting better and better every year.

In the "real" camera world there is just one camera with a powerful lens and sensor.. the forcus is so strong at a particular point (on the subject ) that automatically the background will be seen as blurred.. phones cant fit in that quality optics so have to work around with dual and triple cameras.

While I understand how crappy Mediatek is, they could AND SHOULD step up their game and fix all the flaws.

Shame they cannot sort out the battery sucking issues with this chip.

Aslipundit, 23 May 2018Its clearly not competing with the 636 or 630. It is compet... moreMostly agree...
Except about 430...it's an old 28nm process
430's competitors are mt6750/mt6750T

There won't be any Helio X this year, due to X30's bad sales.
Mediatek can easily do better soc, but can't sell them...

On high-end, patents costs become too high. If companies don't do both soc and devices (like Samsung with Exynos, Huawei with Kirin, Apple with A serie), it's nearly impossible to compete (Mediatek failed with mt6595 and X30, Intel failed with Z3580/Z3590)

Tri-cluster is an improved big.LITTLE. I use X20 and it's great, but as Arm released DynamIQ, there's no more need to do tri-cluster. You can, for exemple, put 2A75 and 6A55 in a single cluster

Shanti Dope, 23 May 2018Idk any Nokia with MediaTek though.Nokia 3 and the measly Nokia , both use MTK chipset. Nokia 1 uses MT6737T, while 3 use MT6737

Why a53, there is a55 already

Just buy any phone with SnapDragon. Mediatek isn't worth it.
