Underlining its domain leadership position in the global chipset manufacturing industry, leading fabless semiconductor company UNISOC (formerly Spreadtrum Communications) showcased its wide range of future-ready 5G and IoT offerings at the recently-concluded India Mobile Congress 2018.
The three-day event was organised by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) along with the Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) on October 25-27, 2018 at Aerocity Grounds, New Delhi. UNISOC was associated with the event as a Gold Sponsor.
Amongst the products and solutions displayed by UNISOC at the latest India Mobile Congress was its latest flagship offering, the SC9863. Launched recently by UNISOC, the powerful AI octa-core processor has been designed to facilitate seamless user experience – even on resource-intensive applications pertaining to machine learning and AR. Based on ARM core (Cortex A55), the SC9863 supports several cutting-edge features such as AI Face ID in 3D, CAT 7/L+L DSDS, 16 MP dual camera, and Full High Definition Plus (FHD+) with full screen capabilities.
Speaking on the participation, Neeraj Sharma, Country Head (India) – UNISOC, said, “Given the speed at which technology is transforming the world today, consumers have become more familiar with advanced technologies such as machine learning, AI, IoT, and AR. In fact, they expect their devices to provide access to and support such new-age applications. In order to stay competitive and achieve growth, players in the mobile and smart devices space need to capitalise on this growing market demand at the earliest. This is the gap that UNISOC is plugging.”
“The UNISOC vision is directed towards the future and is aimed at making the most cutting-edge technology available to the masses at the most cost-effective prices. Our participation at the IMC 2018 as a Gold Sponsor has given us an opportunity to demonstrate our technological prowess and innovative capabilities.
