It’s a new month and we can’t stress how grateful we all, seeing the many victims from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Welcome, We Go Once Again!

The Coronavirus pandemic might have disrupted plans but MediaTek has moved to announce the introduction of two new gaming focused processors namely, the MediaTek Helio G35 and Helio G25 that will be fitted into “mainstream gaming smartphones.”

Both the Helio G35 and the Helio G25 use MediaTek’s HyperEngine Technology that improves the overall gaming experience on budget friendly smartphones in comparison to previous generation processors.

Furthermore, they are both octa-core processors with integrated IMG PowerVR GE8320 graphics and 4G LTE modems.

Gaming enhancement might really be the flag point for its launch but the new Mediatek chip release promises much more in the bag.

The Mediatek G35 and G25 processors also include some features that improve the camera performance when compared to older offerings.

Also, with our mainstream OEM providers in this part of the world using Mediatek over other SoCs, this could prove a very useful addition going forward.

Mediatek Helio G35 and G25 Processors: What’s New?

Seeing as mobile gaming has become such a global phenomenon, especially with the world confined due to a pandemic, MediaTek has
expanded its G series of mobile processors to “meet the huge demand for competitively priced, mainstream gaming smartphones.”

They offer premium features like enhanced power efficiency, enhanced photography, and seamless gameplay.

Both the MediaTek Helio G35 and Helio G25 processors are aimed at budget friendly smartphones and offer enhanced gaming and camera experience.

MediaTek says its HyperEngine Game technology uses intelligent resource management to offer smooth performance. It ensures a lag-free gaming experience by intelligently triggering Wi-Fi and LTE concurrency, the company says.

Moreover, the Helio G35 and Helio G25 SoCs support multi-camera smartphones and come with a hardware depth engine to enable dual camera bokeh photography.

The Helio G25 has support for a single camera mode of up to 21-megapixels at 30fps while the Helio G35 supports up to 25-megapixel cameras and has AI enhanced features that include simulated bokeh.

Here’s a laydown on the full specifications of the Mediatek G35 and G25 SoCs.

Mediatek Helio G35 Specifications

The Helio G35 packs eight 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 cores with maximum frequency of 2.3GHz. The IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU has a maximum frequency of 680MHz and supports a maximum display resolution of 1,080×2,400 pixels. 

Also, it supports both LPDDR3 and LPDDR4x RAM up to 6GB and up to 1,600MHz. Camera features on the Helio G35 include support for two 13-megapixel camera or a single 25-megapixel camera, both at up to 30fps. It also supports Single-Cam/Dual-Cam Bokeh, AI Beautification, Hardware Warping Engine (EIS), AI Smart Photo Album, Multi-Frame Noise reduction, and more.

For connectivity, the MediaTek Helio G35 comes with dual-4G VoLTE support, Wi-Fi 5 (b/g/n/ac), GPS, Glonass, Bluetooth v5.0, and FM radio support.

Mediatek Helio G25 Specifications

The Helio G25 on the other hand has the same 64-bit CPU configuration but with a maximum frequency of 2.0GHz. The IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU supports a maximum display resolution of 720×1,600 pixels.

Furthermore, it has the same RAM support as well. In terms of camera features, the Helio G25 can handle a 13-megapixel sensor and an 8-megapixel sensor, or a single 21-megapixel sensor.

This Helio G25 SoC has the same AI and EIS camera features, as well as the same connectivity options as the MediaTek Helio G35.

Mediatek Helio G35 and G25 Availability

While MediaTek says smartphones with the Helio G35 and the Helio G25 will hit the market soon, in the coming months, some manufacturers are already introducing it in their latest device launch.

The Realme C11 is powered by the MediaTek Helio G35 while the Redmi 9A is powered by the Helio G25 SoC are just few of the smartphones already up and running with the new tech. Both phones were unveiled on Tuesday.

Over here in Nigeria, Transsion smartphone companies – Infinix, Tecno and iTel, could look to give it a go in their next device releases.
