Aug 18, 2017

Spreadtrum unveiled complete series of high-performance LTE SoC platforms and its innovative solutions on mobile communication and IoT (automotive terminal, broadband communication and financial security) in the 2017 Global Partners Conference, "Infinite Chip, Infinite Intelligence", in China's Shenzhen.

During the conference, Spreadtrum unveiled two complete series of high-performance but differentiated LTE SoC platforms- SC9853I and SC9850.

Built on Intel's 14nm foundry platform, Spreadtrum SC9853I was targeting the global mid and high-level smartphone market. It features 1.8GHz Octa-core 64-bit Intel Airmont architecture based processor, which enables SC9853I to offer a high-performance mobile computing ability coupled with ultra-low power.

The SC9853I supports LTE Cat-7 downlink and Cat-13 uplink for five-mode communication standard (TD-LTE/FDD-LTE/TD-SCDMA/WCDMA/GSM), which can reach downlink speeds of 300Mbps and uplink speeds of up to 150Mpbs to achieve a true 4G+ on-line surfing experience. It also supports 1080P HD video playback, 18:9 FHD+ (1080*2160) screen display, and 16 megapixels resolution dual-cameras.

Intel's Vice President, Technology and Manufacturing Group, General Manager, Intel Custom Foundry Dr. Zane Ball while addressing the event said, "The Intel Custom Foundry 14nm platform delivers industry leading PPA and offers turnkey foundry services and support. Spreadtrum's SC9853I SoC is ideal for mainstream mobile designs that need high performance and low leakage."

Spreadtrum SC9850 series is designed for overall entry and mid-level markets globally. It is equipped with a built-in Quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 application processor, as well as ARM Mali 820 integrated 3D graphics accelerator.

It is also equipped with two-way carrier aggregation- Cat-7 Downlink (up to 300 Mbps) and Cat-13 Uplink (up to 150 Mpbs), 1080P HD video playback, 18:9 HD+ (720*1440) screen display and dual cameras up to 13 megapixels.

Both SC9853I and SC9850 series emphasize enhancing dual-camera processing capability. Both include a built-in 3DNR to boost night shooting, and features like refocusing, real-time face beauty, 3D modeling and AR.

With Spreadtrum's exclusive EverMuLTETM technology, these products are able to offer dual-SIM, dual-4G, dual-VoLTE functionalities to enhance call experience.

Both series support urban NFC payment application, and are integrated with sensor control centers to provide a total solution that can enhance users' experience.

Chairman and CEO of Spreadtrum, Dr. Leo Li, said, "Spreadtrum's LTE SoC platforms include the SC9853l can offer better performance to meet the growing demand in the global LTE market. Additionally, these differentiated types of LTE chip solutions enable our customers to address multiple market segments when they develop their end products."

The event wintnessed more than 1000 Spreadtrum global partners including Intel, Reliance, Google, Mircomax, OPPO, VIVO, Gionee, Huawei, ZTE, Intex, Lava, China Mobile, China Unicom, China Telecom, Vodafone, Orange, Telefonica, TRUE, Smartfren, Karbonn Alcatel and Dialog.
