“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, Deputy General Manager, Wireless Communications Business Unit, MediaTek.
“The 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.
Both chips provide fast gaming experiences, powered by Arm Cortex-A53 CPUs, operating up to 2GHz & 2.3GHz for the MediaTek Helio G25 and G35 chips. The chips feature IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPUs, with speeds of up to 650MHz and up to 680 MHz for the Helio G25 & G35, respectively. Both 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.
The chips' enhanced MediaTek HyperEngine delivers intelligent resource management that ensures sustained levels of performance. When the Wi-Fi signal is weak, for example, the technology is able to intelligently trigger Wi-Fi & LTE concurrency within milliseconds, to ensure a lag-free connection. The technology also ensures intelligent and dynamic management of the CPU, GPU, and memory.
These 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.
Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and Rolling Shutter Compensation (RSC) engines are able to 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.
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, are are intended to significantly boost throughput and connection reliability when using Wi-Fi and wireless peripherals, like headphones and gamepads.
