Semiconductor company Spreadtrum through Twitter has announced a partnership with Reliance Jio to make 4G VoLTE powered JioPhone. This comes after Qualcomm had announced that its 205 Mobile Platform will run the JioPhone. As far as Spreadtrum is concerned, the company had introduced its SC9820 SoC in India in April this year with the launch of Lava Connect M1 4G supported feature phone. Spreadtrum’s 28nm 1.2GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 LTE platform SC9820 offers VoLTE and dual SIM function with support for 512 MB RAM/4GB ROM storage and a microSD slot up to 32GB.

The Spreadtrum SC9820 offers ARM Mali-400 MP1 GPU for 3D graphics acceleration and supports TDD-LTE, FDD-LTE, GSM modes and GPRS connectivity as well. It further supports up to 5-megapixel rear/front camera, 720P video display, FWVGA screen and VoLTE HD video service. Spreadtrum SC9820 platform aims to enable startup operators to expand their subscriber base and helping traditional operators to migrate 2G and 3G subscribers to 4G networks at a lower cost.




On the other hand, the Qualcomm 205 SoC sports a dual-core CPU clocked at 1.1GHz and can support up to 3-megapixel rear and selfie camera, and can boast of a VGA display at 480p. It also brings support for HD video streaming and Linux-based OS.
