As an octa-core Intel Airmont SoC designed for LTE smartphones, the SC9853I, jointly developed by Intel and Spreadtrum targets the mid-range and high-level smartphone market. Based on Intel's 14nm FinFET process technology, SC9853I is affordable, power-efficient and its performance prevails over its competitors due to x86's performance-oriented structure.

In 2017, Spreadtrum, the leading fabless semiconductor company got listed as one of the top three global chipmakers in terms of market shares, only after Qualcomm and MediaTek. Now the Shanghai-based emerging tech giant plans to surpass MediaTek on mid-range mobile industry and is trying to catch up with Qualcomm in the high-level smartphone market.

Spreadtrum, which is already working with various global brands, has been very meticulous in selecting its first SC9853I smartphone partner because the launch of the SC9853I required a smartphone manufacturer with reliable products and a global footprint to penetrate global mobile market. LEAGOO emerged as a preferred choice for Spreadtrum.

Statistically, LEAGOO has 160,000m 2 of factory area, over 5,000 employees, 50 factory assembling lines and a production capacity of more than 20 million smartphones per year.

Further, LEAGOO ranked "Top 10 China Export Phone Brands in Asia" and "Top 3 Chinese Phone Brands for Oversea E-commerce Business" in 2016.

LEAGOO's next target is focused on the $100-$120 smartphones, and aims to exploit the mid-range and entry-level handset markets to the fullest. LEAGOO is also ready to use high-spec hardware even on its mid-range and entry-level smartphones, demonstrated by the LEAGOO T5c, a mid-range smartphone with high-spec performance that is the first to use the Spreadtrum SC9853I
