The new processor has been optimized for dual-camera handsets, featuring a 12-bit Dual ISP that supports up to a 24 MP single camera or a 13 MP + 13 MP dual setup, as well as HDR video with full preview.

MediaTek's latest chip follows the general trend of the mobile market, offering improved support for the dual-camera setup that quickly moves from the high-end sector of the market to the mid-range area.

The Helio P25 is an octa-core processor that "combines the power of 16nm Octa-core processing with MediaTek Imagiq - a superior Image Signal Processor (ISP) technology - and dual camera features to satisfy smartphone photographers." According to MediaTek, this new chip's 12-bit Dual ISP provides the following highlights:

  • single 24 MP or dual 13 MP + 13 MP camera support
  • color + mono de-noise and real-time shallow DoF bokeh
  • Turbo 3A that accelerates auto exposure convergence speed by up to 55 percent
  • video HDR with full preview

The new chip is built using the 16 nm FinFET process and uses eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at up to 2.5 GHz, next to the ARM Mali-T880 dual GPU. MediaTek Helio P25 also comes with enhanced LTE upload speeds and support for up to 6 GB LPDDR4x memory.  

The first devices to use the MediaTek Helio P25 are expected to hit the market by the end of Q1 2017.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
