BARCELONA, Spain -- Spreadtrum Communications launches its 14nm 8-core 64-bit LTE SoC platform, SC9861G-IA, at the 2017 Mobile World Congress ("MWC"). Built on Intel's 14nm foundry platform, SC9861G-IA is targeting the global mid-level and premium smartphone market, and features Intel Airmont architecture with powerful mobile computing performance. SC9861G-IA has a very efficient power-management design and will deliver a delightful experience to users worldwide.

The SC9861G-IA platform is a highly integrated LTE chip solution that delivers outstanding power-saving performance. It supports 5-mode (TDD-LTE / FDD-LTE / TD-SCDMA / WCDMA / EGG) full-band LTE Category 7 (Cat 7) communication, as well as Carrier Aggregation and TDD/FDD hybrid networking. The platform enables a peak target data transmission rate of 300 Mbps downlink and 100 Mbps uplink, and the superior multimedia configurations by supporting dual cameras up to 26 megapixels with real-time rear/front camera capture/recording, refocusing, image fusion and real 3D shooting.

The platform achieves ultra-HD 4K2K video recording and playback with HEVC hardware encoding and decoding technology, and supports high-resolution WQXGA (2560 x 1600) displays. It features an integrated Sensor Hub for better user perception and to enable new applications. This platform enhances overall smartphone user experiences.

SC9861G-IA is based on 64-bit 8-core 2.0 GHz Intel Airmont architecture, Imagination PowerVR GT7200 GPU, and developed on Intel's advanced 14nm process technology via its comprehensive foundry services. It uses Intel® Virtualization Technology to support a multi-domain security system architecture and provide security for smart devices.

The Spreadtrum SC9861G-IA is scheduled to go into mass production in the second quarter of 2017. For more details, go to http://www.spreadtrum.com
