MediaTek unveils the Helio P25 chipset4
A partnership with Samsung is expected to help the company increase its shipments this year by 11% over last year's deliveries. To help MediaTek achieve that growth, the Helio P25 should be found powering new smartphone models during the first quarter of this year. While MediaTek chipsets have been found inside many low-end devices, a trend that should continue this year, the company is hoping to become a legitimate choice for manufacturers building top shelf handsets.
MediaTek's Helio P line is produced for devices that need "Premium Performance" and balance speed with energy efficiency. The Helio P chipsets are designed for thinner smartphone models. The company's Helio X line offers "Xtreme Performance." For example, the Helio X20 features a deca-core CPU using a tri-cluster design.
