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
