Its existence was first revealed through realme C11’s teaser earlier this month but it is only today that MediaTek has officially revealed the new Helio G35 processor. The company has also announced another new chip called Helio G25 at the same time.
Specs-wise, both processors are equipped with eight Arm Cortex-A53 cores that have a maximum speed of 2.3GHz for G35 while G25 maximum clock speed is slightly lower at 2GHz. They also carry the same IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU but once again, clocked at a different speed with G35 running at 680MHz and G25 is tuned to 650MHz.
While both chips still able to support dual-camera setup, the G35 goes up to 13MP and 13MP combo but G25 is limited to 13MP and 8MP. This also applies to their single-camera support which maxes out at 25MP and 21MP respectively.
Not to forget, the G35 is also designed to support smartphone display of up to Full HD+ (2400 x 1080) but G25 is limited to HD+ (1600 x 720). Given their modest specs, we expect these new MediaTek processors to be used mainly on budget-oriented smartphones such as the realme C11 that is going to be launched in Malaysia today.
