MediaTek Helio A22 Features Detailed: Dual 4G, LPDDR4 RAM Support and More

Xiaomi debuted its new device, the Redmi 6A and what made this device special was the new processor from MediaTek which shipped the device- the MediaTek Helio A22 SoC. The Taiwanese manufacturer has detailed the features of the SoC which has been specially designed for budget level phones. The quad-core MediaTek Helio A22 SoC delivers power through the four ARM Cortex-A53 processors which clock a max frequency of 2.0 GHz. This chipset is accompanied by an IMG PowerVR GE-class GPU. Speaking of memory, the SoC is compatible with either the high-speed LPDDR4X or the cost-effective LPDDR3. It also supports eMMC 5.1 storage type. MediaTek has also claimed that CPU performance of the Helio A22 shows a 30% better performance and GPU performance is 72% better when compared to its “direct alternative”.


As for the display, the SoC supports 1600 x 720 pixels and an aspect ratio of up to 20:9. This renders the SoC capable of accommodating the taller than usual displays which have become a norm in most modern phones with or without the notch. It might be due to this chipset that edge-to-edge displays in the entry-level segment can be a thing. Connectivity options include GPS, Beidou, Galileo, GLONASS, GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, FM radio, and Cat-4 LTE. This chipset also sports the 4G LTE WorldMode modem that ships dual 4G SIM support with VoLTE/ ViLTE to compatible Android handsets. The 600MHz band is supported for the North Indian markets

The Helio A22 also doesn’t miss out on AI capabilities thanks to the Light Edge AI engine. Some AI based functions include software-based Face ID (Face Unlock), Smart Photo Album, and advanced single or dual-camera Bokeh effects. “With MediaTek NeuroPilot developers and device makers have the best possible ecosystem, with support for many common AI frameworks and full compliance with Android Neural Networks API (Android NNAPI)” as per the blog post.


The chipset also supports 13MP+8MP dual cameras with twin ISP which is promised to capture professional-grade photos with Depth of Field (Bokeh) effects, while a single camera mode of up to 21MP also supports Bokeh through help from its clever AI ability. The chipset also promises excellent low-light performance, multi-frame noise reduction and clear-image zoom technology. Further, the Imagiq capture suite includes enhancements that automatically minimise aliasing, grain, and provides defect/distortion correction techniques.

What’s worse could happen to Jio is me switching to Airtel. Calling on Jio is nightmare for me. I see Airtel using band 8 900mhz for 3g, so now Jio 850 4g and Airtel 3g on 900mhz make them even. I hope my phone don’t match to 900mhz 2g…..yes Airtel has both up on its big chunk of 900mhz b.w

It’s getting worse 850mhz frequency 5mhz bandwidth 2 bars….voice breaks, one way voice. Outside Jio is good…..only 850mhz Jio sucks. I have the longest validity than anyone else….let’s see any improvement till it’s expire..

How many recharges did you do man? When does your validity end? I always kept telling people not to recharge more than twice in advance because you never know how the network might behave in a few months. But you can use other networks which are better at your place since the cost is so cheap these days.

Wow that’s way too long. Does any other network get better speeds and coverage in your place? Try them out. Rates are too low now anyway.

Yes this heart Never expect any body moving to Airtel from Jio. You could have moved to Vodafone idea. Why why Airtel

June 16, 2018 4:30 pm 4:30 PM

I moved from JIO to Airtel claimed handset repair charges + 1 year Amazon prime (499 rental x 3 months), now moved back to Jio.

June 16, 2018 3:00 pm 3:00 PM

i moved my primary jio number to make it as secondary airtel.
1) Airtel mahashtra has less congested network with band 40 on airtel 4g
2) idea-voda would have to make network stable and also maintain subscriber base below 50%.

Idea has best network in Maharashtra!!!!! Once they deploy band 41 Noone is going to match anything else!!!!!

“The 600MHz band is supported for the North Indian markets”. This should read “North American”.
