HSINCHU, Taiwan – February 8, 2016 – MediaTek today announced the launch of its MediaTek Helio P25, the newest addition to the MediaTek Helio P series mobile processor family. The new chipset 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.
You can read the press bulletin here.
Big words from Mediatek, but the only change I can find is that the cluster with the faster A53-cores run @ 2.5 Ghz instead of 2.3 Ghz.

Euhm hello IOblogblog, Camera has more words in the P25 box…
So to round-up the camera difference, the P25 has a Turbo 3A HW engine and the P20 has a 3A HW engine.
I have no idea what the 3A HW engine is, the only explanation i found on Mediatek are the following words: “helps cameras capture more natural, vivid and detailed photos”
That sounds good and now with the P25 we should get: “helps cameras turbo capture more turbo natural, turbo vivid and turbo detailed photos”
😉 Lets wait till we see some reviews.
