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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
