MediaTek has launched a new octa-core mid-range SoC called the Helio P25. The new processor is targeted towards dual-camera smartphones and features the company’s Imagiq Image Signal Processor. The SoC can support up to a 24MP single camera or a 13MP dual camera setup. The company says that the chipset is optimised for dual-camera setups and offers support for colour + mono images and real-time depth of field rendering.

“MediaTek Helio P25 paves the way for high-resolution and feature-rich smartphone cameras that enable amazing static shots and 4K2K videos,”said Jeffrey Ju, Executive Vice President and Co-Chief Operating Officer at MediaTek. “Supporting two cameras up to 13MP each, the MediaTek Helio P25 redefines expectations for mobile photography and our multimedia features like, MediaTek MiraVision technology, continuously enhance visual user-experiences.”

The MediaTek Helio P25 uses a 16nm FinFET process, and the company claims this allows it to offer 25% better power efficiency. The chipset features Cortex A53 cores that can be clocked at up to 2.5GHz, and sports a Mali-T880 dual GPU clocked at 900MHz. It can support up to 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM, and devices powered by this SoC are expected to launch in the first quarter of 2017.
