How UniSOC Benefits Smartphones

If you’ve ever bought a smartphone under the Rs 6,000 mark in India, chances are it was powered by Spreadtrum or UniSOC chipsets. The China-based fabless semiconductor company has been in the market for just under a year now.

In that time, the company has risen to be a formidable competitor in the system-on-chips (SoC) space. In addition, it’s also a player in the 5G race.


UNISOC is a leading SoC manufacturer with a strong portfolio of products that are relevant for smartphones. It has already partnered with Xiaomi and HMD Global to name just two, but it’s now getting more attention from other smartphone makers with its latest chipset releases.

Unisoc’s Tangulla series 5G SoCs are built on 6nm EUV process technology. They feature a 2.6GHz octa-core CPU, Arm Mali-G57 GPU, support for 108MP cameras, 4K/60fps video recording and more.

The chipset also features a sub-6GHz V510 5G modem, AI-based power regulation technology and a 35% lower power consumption than a mobile platform paired with a separate 5G modem. It can be used in both light-load and heavy-load scenarios, and offers a fast-accessing and dependable 5G experience.

UNISOC’s 5G chipsets are designed to meet customer needs in six dimensions: manufacturing process, communications, AI, multimedia, power consumption and security. They deliver a seamless, secure and high-performance 5G connectivity experience to devices and allow for a more personalized and intelligent society.


UNISOC is a China-based fabless semiconductor company headquartered in Shanghai. It develops chipsets for mobile phones and other devices.

Founded in 2001, UNISOC is one of the largest smartphone chip companies in the world (after MediaTek, Qualcomm and Apple). It has shipped more than 58 million chips in the first three quarters of 2021, up from 48 million in the same period last year.

The company has 4500 staff, 15 R&D centres and seven customer support centers around the world. It is committed to independent research and development of core chipsets in mobile communications and AIoT.

Its products include 2G, 3G and 4G baseband chipsets; wireless connection chipsets; AI chipsets and RF front-end chipsets; WAN IoT, LAN IoT and smart display chipsets. UNISOC also offers integrated chip solutions for the broadcast television market.


UNISOC, formerly Spreadtrum Communications, is a China-based fabless semiconductor company committed to independent research and development of core chipsets in mobile communication and IoT. It is currently in the process of restructuring.

Unisoc aims to establish itself as a global brand by focusing on 5G and IoT market opportunities. In addition, it will also expand its chip production capacity to 28-nanometre and above technology node.

In addition, it will increase the investment in R&D and commercialization of its semiconductor products. Moreover, UNISOC will continue to improve its technological innovation, service quality and customer relationship.

UNISOC recently launched the SC9863, an AI-powered octa-core processor that is designed to facilitate seamless user experience on resource-intensive applications pertaining to machine learning and AR. It offers a number of cutting-edge features, including face unlocking in 3D, CAT 7/L+L DSDS, 16-megapixel dual camera and Full High Definition Plus (FHD+) with Full Screen capabilities. The device also supports 10W charging. It is based on ARM Cortex-A55.

UNISOC Service

UNISOC is a leading fabless semiconductor company committed to research and development in core chipsets for mobile communications and internet of things products. The company offers consumer electronics, industrial electronics and pan-connection services, enabling customers to access 5G and artificial intelligence technologies.

Currently, the main product line of UNISOC covers mobile communication central processing units, baseband chips, AI chips and radio frequency front-end chips. These products are widely used in smart phones, feature phones, wearables, finance, smart logistics, smart power and medical industries.

Check Point found a flaw in the LTE protocol stack for UNISOC’s chipsets that could be remotely exploited to derail the modem’s functionality and prevent it from communicating with the network. The flaw was found in a UNISOC chip that is used in many Android smartphones that do not receive security updates regularly.

The vulnerability was discovered by checking a UNISOC chip on a Motorola Moto G20 phone running a January 2022 security patch. The attackers would need to transmit a specially designed radio packet that would crash the firmware, disrupting the device’s ability to communicate with the network until it is rebooted.
