MediaTek announces new Helio G35 & G25 gaming chipsets
Gadgets|July 03, 2020

MediaTek has launched its newest gaming-focused G-Series smartphone processors, the Helio G25 and G35. The two new chips feature MediaTek’s HyperEngine game technology for faster, smoother performance, enhanced power efficiency, and brilliant graphics.

The new chipsets will keep users connected and deliver the lowest latency gaming experience. Apart from gaming, the Helio G25 and G35 also offer enhanced imaging features, making them a perfect fit for photography enthusiasts.

“Mobile gaming is now the preferred mode of entertainment across market segments, and MediaTek expanded its G-series to meet the huge demand for competitively priced, mainstream gaming smartphones,” said Dr. Yenchi Lee, general manager, wireless communication business unit, MediaTek.

“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,” Lee added.

The Helios G25 and G35 is powered by ARM Cortex-A53 CPUs, operating for up to 2GHz and 2.3GHz respectively. The chips feature an IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU with speeds up to 650MHz for the G25 and up to 680MHz for the G35. Both chips have optimal power efficiency thanks to an advanced 12nm FinFET production process which, when combined with MediaTek HyperEngine’s intelligent power management, ensures long battery-life and power efficiency, even during long gaming sessions.

MediaTek HyperEngine Game Technology

The chips feature an enhanced MediaTek HyperEngine, for intelligent resource management that ensures sustained and smooth performance, even in demanding action. When the WiFi signal is weak, the technology intelligently triggers WiFi and LTE concurrency within milliseconds, to ensure a lag-free connection. The technology also ensures intelligent and dynamic management of CPU, GPU, and memory.

MediaTek’s newest chips support multi-camera smartphones and include a hardware depth engine for dual-camera bokeh photography. The G25 supports a single camera mode of up to 21MP at 30fps, while the G35 supports up to 25MP cameras and AI-enhanced camera features including simulated bokeh effects. 

Multi-camera smartphones

Electronic image stabilization (EIS) and rolling shutter compensation (RSC) engines cleverly mitigate warped (‘jello effect’) videos when capturing fast action or panning video. The chips enable brands to adopt popular AI-camera enhancements such as AI beautification, Smart Photo Album, and enhance precision in bokeh captures.

Fast and reliable connectivity

The chips feature integrated 4G LTE WorldMode modems, including essential dual 4G SIM support, allowing VoLTE/ViLTE on both connections. Enhanced with a highly power-efficient design extending battery life, the chips offer MediaTek TAS 2.0 smart antenna technology, which actively detects signal quality to provide the best connection, with low power consumption.

Integrated Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5 support simultaneous co-existence, aimed at significantly boosting throughput and connection reliability when using Wi-Fi and wireless peripherals, like headphones and gamepads. 

MediaTek’s Helio G series family of gaming-optimized solutions includes the G90 Series of G90 and G90T chipsets, targeted at premium users, along with the G85, G80, and G70 chipsets for mid-tier smartphones. The newest additions, the MediaTek Helio G25 and G35, are focused on the mainstream smartphones category and extends MediaTek’s reach across market segments. The new chips are set to power offerings from major smartphone brands, expected to hit the markets in coming months.
