Spreadtrum's New SoC to Power LEAGOO's T5c Smartphones

At Mobile World Congress 2017, Intel collaborated with Spreadtrum to introduce a new mobile SoC - SC9853I. As an octa-core Intel Airmont SoC designed for LTE smartphones, SC9853I is Spreadtrum and Intel's joint innovation product targeting the mid-range and high-level smartphone market. Based on Intel's 14nm FinFET process technology, SC9853I is affordable, power-efficient and is based on an x86's performance-oriented structure.

Spreadtrum, which is already working with various global brands, has been very meticulous or even picky to select its first SC9853I smartphone partner because its ambition has little tolerance for business mistakes. They wanted was a smartphone manufacturer with reliable products and global footprints to penetrate the global mobile market. LEAGOO is one of the top 3 Chinese Phone Brands for the overseas E-commerce Business. And emerged as a preferred choice for Spreadtrum. 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. With that said, LEAGOO seems to be ready to use high-spec hardware even on its mid-range and entry-level smartphones. And choosing Spreadtrum SC9853I for its latest product - LEAGOO T5c, a mid-range smartphone with high-spec performance is a testimony of the same. Being the first global smartphone manufacturer to use Spreadtrum SC9853I, LEAGOO appears to be confident that the future mid-range and budget phones can be even more available with improved performance.

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

Let's wait and see if T5c will make that happen. Click here to learn more about the LEAGOO T5c.
