At the India Mobile Congress 2019 in New Delhi, UNISOC has announced the launch of the UNISOC TIGER T117 platform. The TIGER T117 chipset has been designed for use on 4G feature phones and help users migrate from 2G/3G to 4G networks.
The TIGER T117 comes with support for LTE, WCDMA and GSM networks and is a specialised chipset for 4G feature phones. UNISOC says the chipset is the smallest 4G SoC platform in the world and it supports LTE CAT4 and VoLTE HD voice calling.
The new UNISOC platform provides Dual SIM, Dual Standby (DSDS) functionality and thus, allows using two SIMs simultaneously and also switching from 2G /3G to 4G networks. Additionally, the TIGER T117 offers ultra-low power consumption, Bluetooth, FM Radio, multimedia playback, a built-in LPDDR and RTOS support.
Commenting on the launch, UNISOC Executive VP, Eric Zhou 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”.
Zhou added, “In the future, by leveraging this advantage, we look forward to helping operators reduce operating costs, evolve towards the next generation of mobile technology, and provide consumers with better services and experiences”.
Prior to this, UNISOC confirmed that Android 10 is ready to roll out on its mobile platforms. The company worked with Google to develop the latest mobile OS for UNISOC SC9863A, SC9832E and SC7731E processors.
In August, UNISOC announced two new SoCs – the Tiger T710 and Tiger T618, built using a 12nm process node with different configurations of the multiple cores on the inside. The Tiger T710 is configured with four Cortex-A75 cores clocked at 2GHz and four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. It’s coupled with a PowerVR GM 9446 graphics and a dedicated NPU for AI performance. The Tiger T618, on the other hand, is powered by a two Arm Cortex-A75 cores clocked at 2GHz, six Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.8GHz and a Mali G52 MP2 GPU.
