As the chipset is aided by MediaTek CorePilot technology, the smartphones will enjoy faster and smoother activity along with less power consumption. Its TSMC 12 nm FinFET production process helps increase the battery life and CPU performance of devices.

The processor will allow smartphone makers to develop 20:9 ratio smartphones with HD plus 1600 x 720 resolution. Also, it will support a dual camera setup up to 13 MP + 5 MP. In the case of single-camera systems, the chipset will support cameras up to 16 MP with AI-bokeh mode for portrait pictures.

The all-new Helio A25 comes with dual 4G SIM support and VoLTE/ViLTE service capability as well as WorldWide IMS support. Building on its predecessor the MediaTek Helio P series, this chipset will offer great performance in low light situations and an enhanced zooming technology.

Global connectivity and location services will get a boost with the Helio A25 as it supports multiple GNSS options, i.e., GPS, Glonass, Beidou, and Galileo.
