The Helio P22 is fabricated using the TSMC’s 12nm FinFET fabrication process. Yes, 12nm seems exciting, but it is not as great as you might have expected. If you look at the transistor densities, it is only slightly better than Samsung’s 14nm Process that is used by Qualcomm’s 14nm SOCs like Snapdragon 450.
