MediaTek today officially introduced Helio P25, another mid-range SoC formed using the high-end 16nm FinFET process. The P-series chips from MediaTek are known are primarily focused on power efficiency and the use of advanced finFET process should surely give a significant boost in this regards. And so will the new memory controller.

The Helio P25 supports LPDDR4X interface, which is a new standard that evolves over the LPDDR4, and is capable of cutting memory power by 20 percent.

The ISP also sees some improvement. The Helio P25 can support up to 24MP single camera and up to two 13MP cameras which makes it well suited for upcoming mid-range dual camera phones (MediaTek has been prioritizing dual cameras with its Imagiq ISPs for a while now). Other camera related aspects include support for Color + Mono de-noise and real-time shallow Depth of field bokeh, Video HDR and high-performance Auto Exposure.

The Helio P25 will have 8 Cortex A53 cores arranged in two clusters. We don’t know the individual clock frequency of each cluster, but the performance cores max at 2.5GHz. The GPU has been upgraded to Mali T880MP2 clocked at 900MHz

“MediaTek Helio P25 paves the way for high-resolution and feature-rich smartphone cameras that enable amazing static shots and 4K2K videos,”said Jeffrey Ju, Executive Vice President and Co-Chief Operating Officer at MediaTek. “Supporting two cameras up to 13MP each, the MediaTek Helio P25 redefines expectations for mobile photography and our multimedia features like, MediaTek MiraVision technology, continuously enhance visual user experiences.”

Smartphones powered by Helio P25 are expected to ship in second half of 2017.
