MediaTek on Tuesday launched two new gaming series chipsets Helios G35 and G25. The smartphone running the latest chips will be available in coming months.

"The MediaTek Helio G25 and G35 chips offer smartphone users premium features included in our other G-series family, including enhanced power efficiency, optimum performance, seamless gameplay, and enhanced photography", he added. The former is an entry-level processor featuring eight ARM Cortex A-53 CPU cores clocked at 2.0GHz. The MediaTek Helio G35 comes with a clock speed of up to 2.3GHz, while the MediaTek Helio G25 is loaded with a clock speed of up to 2GHz. The chips have IMG PowerVR GE8320 graphic processing unit, with speeds of up to 650MHz and up to 680 MHz for the MediaTek Helio G25 and G35, respectively.

The Helio G35 is slightly better specced of the two. The Helio G25 supports displays at up to 1600×720 resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate. Its Imagination PowerVR GE8320 GPU is also clocked at 680MHz. The Helio G25 supports dual 13-megapixel+8-megapixel cameras or a single 21-megapixel camera.

In terms of cameras, both of them support multi-camera setup and include a hardware depth engine for dual-camera bokeh photography. Both the chipsets support 1080P video encoding (H.264) and playback (H.264, H.265/HEVC) at 30 fps.

The company has introduced MediaTek Helio G35 and Helio G25 chipsets. In addition, provided work and LPDDR4x LPDDR3 RAM up to 6 GB. The chipsets support eMMC 5.1 storage options.

Connectivity features include LTE Cat. It is integrated with Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5 support. The new MediaTek chipsets further support Beidou, Galileo, Glonass, GPS, and QZSS navigation systems. The SoCs feature MediaTek HyperEngine game technology for enhanced gaming performance without compromising on the power efficiency. Both the MediaTek Helio G25 and G35 have optimal power efficiency due to an advanced 12nm FinFET production process which, combined with MediaTek HyperEngine's intelligent power management, ensures long battery-life and power efficiency, even during long gaming sessions.
