The MediaTek Helio X25 is an enhanced version of the Helio X20 SoC and the upcoming Meizu Pro 6 will be the first to use it
Mediatek has unveiled its newest chipset called the Helio X25. The new chipset is an enhanced version of the deca-core Helio X20 chipset and comes with the same tri-cluster design. Like the Helio X20, the X25 comes with a dual-core Cortex A72 cluster and two quad-core Cortex A53 clusters. The difference is that the A72 “turbo cluster” in the Helio X25 is clocked to 2.5GHz as compared to 2.3Ghz in the Helio X20. In addition, the Mali T880 MP4 GPU in the Helio X25 is clocked at 850MHz. The company has also said that the chipset should draw the same amount of power as the Helio X20.
It was also revealed that the MediaTek Helio X25 chipset will be first used by the Meizu Pro 6 smartphone. The chipset was co-developed with Meizu, and the smartphone manufacturer will have exclusive rights to the chipset for a few months. However, nothing else was revealed about the Meizu Pro 6 smartphones. Earlier reports have suggested that the smartphone may be launched in two variants, one of which may come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The other variant might come with 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage. The Pro 6 is also expected to sport a Full HD display with 3D Touch technology.
