During the conference, Spreadtrum unveiled two complete series of high-performance but differentiated types of LTE SoC platforms – the SC9853I, which is based on Intel's advanced 14nm foundry platform, Octa-core 64-bit Intel Airmont architecture and the highly integrated 5-mode system – and the SC9850 series with low-power consumption. Mass production for both series of chips has already begun.
Built on Intel's 14nm foundry platform, the SC9853I targets the global mid and high-level smartphone market. It features 1a .8 GHz Octa-core 64-bit Intel Airmont architecture based processor, which enables it 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 5-mode communication standard (TD-LTE/FDD-LTE/TD-SCDMA/WCDMA/GSM), which can reach downlink speeds of 300 Mbps and uplink speeds of up to 150 Mpbs to achieve a true 4G+ on-line surfing experience. It also supports 1080P HD video playback, 18:9 FHD+ (1080 x 2160) screen display, and 16 megapixels resolution dual-cameras.
Spreadtrum SC9850 series is designed for overall mid and entry-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. The SC9850 series supports five-mode communication standard (TD-LTE/FDD-LTE/TD-SCDMA/ WCDMA/GSM). 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 x 1440) screen display and dual cameras up to 13 megapixels.
Meanwhile, 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.
