MediaTek Introduces Helio P25

Mediatek Helio P25

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…

Indeed, but when reading the P20 press release and the P20 product page they also state 13+13MP dual camera or 24MP single camera support.

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.
