In August, Spreadtrum released its latest processor with the name Spreadtrum SC9853I. This is based on the 14nm Intel Airmont microarchitecture. In addition, it was reported, earlier this month that it is now ready for mass production. Best of all, it will soon make its international debut on the new LEAGOO T5c smartphone. In short, the LEAGOO T5c will come equipped with the SC9853I and will be the first mobile to have it. If you want to get an idea of what the smartphone will achieve thanks to this processor, see for yourself in the video that we will leave below:
The SC9853I is based on Intel’s 14nm FinFET process technology. It also presents Intel Airmont microarchitecture of eight cores, 64GHz and 64 bits; which, in turn, comes with the Mali-T820 MP2 GPU. As for its modem, SC9853I supports LTE (Long-Term Evolution) Cat-7 downlink and Cat-13 uplink for 5 standard communication modes (TD-LTE / FDD-LTE / TD-SCDMA / WCDMA / GSM); It can achieve download speeds of 300 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 150 Mbps to achieve a true 4G + online browsing experience.
Regarding its parameters, the SC9853I CPU is quite competitive in the mid-range market. At the Spreadtrum’s Global Partners conference in 2017, Spreadtrum noted that the SC9853I, although designed for mid-range and basic phones, has an outstanding performance.
Let’s start the comparison between rivals
To illustrate the actual performance of the SC9853I, a comparison review is performed between the Spreadtrum SC9853I, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, the Huawei Kirin 970 and the Mediatek Helio P23. Because these processors have a huge difference in CPU and GPU, the comparison mainly focuses on performance regarding download speed and voice call performance.
The researchers tested the previous SoCs by downloading files over 800GB and making voice calls of more than 3000 minutes. We will show you the details of the results of the tests.
In the work area (offices and conference rooms), the download speed of the Spreadtrum SC9853I is the highest, even superior to the Kirin 970 and the Snapdragon 835.
For its part, in the commercial area, the download speed of the SC9853I is generally higher than that of the Helium P23 and, in some cases, even higher than the Kirin 970 and the Snapdragon 835.
At low speed, the download speed of the SC9853I is close to that of the Kirin 970 and the Snapdragon 835. By contrast, at high speed, the download speed of the SC9853I is higher than that of the other three processors.
We could say then, based on the above, that the average download speed of the SC9853I processor is as good as that of other flagship SoC.
Voice call performance
In the work area, the average performance of the voice calls of the SC9853I is higher than that of the other SoCs. At high speed, the average performance of the voice calls of the SC9853I is better than that of the Snapdragon 835 and the Helio P23, but it is equivalent to that of the Kirin 970. The percentage of HD voice for the SC9853I, however, has room for improvement.
At low speed, the average performance of the SC9853I is similar to that of the Helio P23, lower than that of the Kirin 970 but higher than that of the Snapdragon 835. Meanwhile, the HD voice percentage of the SC9853I is lower than the Helio P23 and Kirin 970 but higher than the Snapdragon 835.
In summary, the performance of the Spreadtrum SC9853I is good enough to match a flagship SoC in terms of download speed performance and voice calls. Likewise, the sources show that the SC9853I has adopted the latest V2 architecture and made large-scale optimizations in radiofrequency and baseband algorithms, which greatly improve its mobile communication performance, regardless of whether it is working, buying or driving.
