- Unisoc says it is strengthening its 4G portfolio with T117 to reduce future operational costs
- The chipset supports VoLTE HD voice calling
Unisoc has launched the Tiger T117 SoC platform in India at the India Mobile Congress. The company says the chipset has been designed for use in 4G feature phones that would help users to shift from 2G or 3G network to 4G network.
As per Unisoc, Tiger T117 is the smallest 4G SoC platform in the world and it supports LTE CAT4 and VoLTE HD voice calling. The chipset also comes with ultra-low power consumption, bluetooth, FM radio, multimedia playback, a built-in LPDDR (Low-Power Double DataRate) and RTOS ( Real Time Operating System) support according to Unisoc.
4G portfolio to reduce operating costs in the future
Eric Zhou, executive vice president, Unisoc, said, “By providing innovative technology, Unisoc hopes to maximize value for our customers and help them seize the opportunities of the 5G era. With Tiger T117, we are strengthening our 4G portfolio to meet different user expectations.” The company plans to use the 4G portfolio developed now to reduce operators operating costs in the future.
Unisoc says that the last several years have been tough for telecom operators as consumption of mobile data has boomed. The solution lies in shifting to 4G network. An official statement from the company read, “Closure of the 2G or 3G network is the ideal solution for transmitting richer and multi-stream data in a quick and secure way as it allows for a significantly higher throughput than both 3G and 2G solutions.”
Tiger T710 and Tiger T618 launched
In August this year, Unisoc had launched Tiger T710 and Tiger T618 SoC platforms which had 12nm process node. Tiger T710 had Cortex-A75 cores clocked at 2GHz and four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. The T618 had two Arm Cortex-A75 cores clocked at 2GHz, six Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.8GHz and a Mali G52 MP2 GPU.
