Spreadtrum, a Chinese chipset manufacturer, announced al MWC di Barcelonanew SC9860 SoCthe first octa-core processor at 16nm in the world.

The specifications of the new SoC are really impressive, and they see aOcta-Core architecture at 16nm much more efficient than the 20nm or 28nm technology that rival processors still use.
The SC9860 employs one ARM CPU to 64 bit formed by 8 core A53 with frequency up to 2.0GHz, and a powerful one GPU Mali T880 MP4.
Speaking of 4K, the chipset features hardware support for video recording and playback for HEVC Ultra HD 4K2K and supports sensors to 26 mega-pixels.
The display can support a WQXGA resolution of 2560 x 1600.

Spreadtrum SC9860 supports the 4G network TDD / FDD with a modem LTE CAT7, capable of reaching a peak data rate of 300 Mbps in downlaod e 100 Mbps in upload.

When it comes to smartphones I usually am Mediatek o Qualcomm the center of attention but at least this time, instead, it is Spreadtrum to be talked about, and it is curious to understand how it managed to be one of the first to release a chipset 16nm.

We remember that Spredtrum is the same chip manufacturer associated with some investments of Xiaomi, which occurred last year. The announcement of this chip also coincides with the rumors that Xiaomi could adopt its own chipset by the end of 2016 on some of its devices.  Errata corridge: The manufacturer with which he cooperated Xiaomi in the past it is Leadcore.
