MediaTek chips to bring AI experience to Indian smart phone users



NEW DELHI: Feature phone and entry-level smartphone users will soon get the benefits of Artificial Intelligence (AI)-accelerated experiences, brilliant photography and reliable high-speed connectivity with the Taiwanese mobile chipset maker MediaTek launching the new chips in the market.


The new Helio P22 combines the most power efficient manufacturing processing brought to Android smartphones with MediaTek’s CorePilot technology, allowing for sustainable high performance and power savings. Helio P22 also supports incredible photography and outstanding connectivity on dual 4G SIM cards.

Helio P22 delivers the benefits of AI at a remarkably affordable price. AI accelerated camera experiences including Face ID, smart photo album and single-camera as well as dual-camera depth of field features are all supported.

Users can enjoy the fast LTE connectivity on both SIM cards, and 802.11ac WiFi for high Internet throughputs. MediaTek Helio P22 also supports BT5.0, the latest version of the Bluetooth wireless communication standard, and a 4-satellite system GNSS allows for faster, more efficient and more accurate connectivity locally and globally.

Showcasing advancements in smartphone AI in New Delhi on July 5, TL Lee, General Manager, Wireless Communication, MediaTek, told IANS that the company is well aware of the huge mobile handset consumer base.

There are nearly 650 million mobile phone users in India and just over 300 million of them have a smartphone, according to Counterpoint Research.

"We want to democratise AI. The idea of introducing New-Age chipsets with AI capabilities is to empower all mobile users. India offers a great opportunity across price segments and we'll have AI chips to address all of those soon," Lee emphasised.

MediaTek, that enables 1.5 billion connected devices a year, is a first mover in bringing features such as AI Processing Unit (APU), face detection, gaming, voice-assistant, shopping and others to mid-range smartphones, the IANS report said.

Companies that joined MediaTek and leading the AI experience include Facebook, Google and smartphone manufacturers like Realme (an OPPO sub-brand).
