MediaTek's Helio A25

Yesterday, MediaTek has launched its Helio A25 SoC. The newly launched chipset will be used by device makers who produce entry-level smartphones. Moreover, the chipset is already available in the Infinix Smart 4 Plus, which was launched, earlier in July, at a starting price of ₹7,999 in India and in the Tecno Spark 5 Pro, which can be found at the cost of ₹10,499. 

The new chipset launched on Monday has the ARM Cortex-A53 CPU, which allows it to perform up to 1.8 GHz speed and the IMG Power VR GE8320- class graphic processor. Moreover, it also comes with a flexible memory controller, and the chip was built using TSMS’s 12nm FinFET production process. But what’s more surprising is that the processor enables device makers to create displays with an HD+ resolution of 1600×720 pixels plus a 20:9 aspect ratio, which allows a greater balance between sharpness and power-efficiency. 

MediaTek’s Helio A25 chipset- additional specs 

At the Helio A25 processor’s launch, the company has also revealed all the specifications and the advantages the chipset will offer to device makers. 

As for the camera capacity, MediaTek’s Helio A25 processor supports up to a 13-megapixel+ 5 megapixel dual-camera system. It also supports a single camera up to 16-megapixel with AI-bokeh for photos in portrait mode. 

The chipset also comes with the upgraded version of the company’s Electronic Image Stabilization technology, which was upgraded with an updated Rolling Shutter Compensation engine. MediaTek revealed that the RSC engine mitigates wrapped video when capturing fast action or panning. 

But that’s not all, MediaTek’s Helio A25 also offers improved low-light performance, as well as multi-frame noise reduction, plus a clear-image zoon technology, which is a significant improvement when you compare it with its predecessor. 

As for the connectivity, MediaTek’s newly launched chipset is equipped with dual 4G SIM support, VoLTER/ViLTE service capability, and also offers WorldWide IMS support. Moreover, the chip also comes with global multi-GNSS options with core-enhancements. So, device makers will be able to get options such as GPS, Glonass, Galileo, and Beidou, which will ensure a winning combination of advanced connectivity and location services.  

The Helio A25 chipset also supports Bluetooth 5, which gives the capability of providing two times speeds, four times range, and eight times broadcast capacity compared to the previous generations of this technology. MediaTek reveals that the coexistence of both Bluetooth technology and Wi-Fi provides the capability of offering up to 5 times Wi-Fi throughput boost compared with the previous generations. So, with that in mind, we can say the MediaTek’s Helio A25 chipset is absolutely superior to all company’s previous products. 

As the company’s CorePilot technology aids the Helio A25 chipset, the entry-level smartphones that will be powered by it will enjoy quicker and smoother activity. At the same time, they also enjoy less power consumption.

MediaTek has introduced the new Helio A25 processor for the Indian market. So, there’s still no word on whether or not the chip will be available in the rest of the world and when this will happen.
