The Unisoc Tiger 310: Snapdragon 845 cores in a new, entry-level form
Unisoc (formerly Spreadtrum) has released a new kind of SoC for entry-level smartphones. It apparently contains some world-beating 2018 hardware, albeit in a whole new incarnation directed at a wholly different price-tier of computing.
The Unisoc Tiger T310 consists of Cortex-A75 and -A55 cores in an asymmetrical arrangement. These same ARM components are also found in last year’s Qualcomm mobile flagship, the Snapdragon 845. However, in this new combination, they may make a versatile, powerful processor, yet one that is also highly cost-effective.
Unisoc reportedly clocks the A55s and A75 at 1.8 and 2.0 GHz respectively in the Tiger T310. ARM claims that these cores are capable of appreciable power and performance, built as they are on the nearly-new DynamIQ platform. This conformation also apparently makes the T310 the world's first 4-core phone CPU that can deliver 4G/LTE.
