Last week, the manufacturer Leagoo announced the upcoming launch of its new T5C terminal, and as usual, they are publishing information at the drop rate. Now they have given information about the SoC that will mount the terminal, and has been surprised by being the first to mount a Spreadtrum processor, a SC9853i that specifically mounts eight cores and that, eye on the data, is manufactured under the node at 14 nanometers from Intel. It is very unusual, if not quite weird, to see a Chinese terminal mount a processor that is not manufactured by MediaTek or Qualcomm in any case. That the Leagoo T5C mount a processor that is manufactured by Intel, and also not sold under its brand but under the Spreadtrum is even rarer, and in fact this smartphone is going to be the first in the world, although probably not the last – that mounts a SoC of this brand.
The Spreadtrum SC9853i is a processor of eight physical cores that operate at a maximum speed of 1.8 Ghz, and which according to the manufacturer is on average 39% more powerful than the usual MTK6750 (25% better in single core and 36% better in multi core) in the popular AnTuTu benchmark, and also consuming less energy. This is largely due to the fact that the Spreadtrum processor is manufactured with the Intel 14nm FinFET node, while the MediaTek processor has a 28nm lithograph, which is less efficient and powerful, of course.
As for the other features of the Leagoo T5C, in addition to having confirmed the processor that will mount is known to have dual rear camera (Samsung, 13 Mpx + OV 2 Mpx), IPS 5.5-inch screen manufactured by SHARP and with Full HD resolution, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, and a battery manufactured by LG of 3,000 mAh capacity with fast charge to 5V and 2A. It will also mount a fingerprint reader on the front, on the Home button. The recommended retail price of this mid-range terminal is $ 129.99, although Leagoo has already opened the reservation period (December 5 is expected to start sending orders) on its website, and among those some people only have to pay $ 1.99 (random lottery seems to be).
