UNISOC claims its 6nm 5G SoCs are ready for mass production
UNISOC is China's 2nd biggest chip-maker, and often makes SoCs that feature in low-end or cost-effective phones. However, it has also announced the development of a 6-nanometer (nm) chipset that also supports 5G recently. This Tiger T7520 is now apparently to reach the mass-production stage by the end of 2020.
This will also mean that UNISOC will be the first company to apply the extreme UV lithography (EUV) process to a 6nm node. It will result in a chipset with the Mali-G75 GPU, 4 ARM Cortex A76 cores and the same number of Cortex A55 cores.
The OEM still has not revealed the speeds at which these clusters are clocked; however, it is now reported to equal the Snapdragon 855 in terms of performance. This could put it in the middle of the road in 2021, which is when the first device based on the Tiger T7520 SoC is projected to be released.
This device may also be capable of dual-mode and sub-6GHz 5G on its launch. It may also have a display with a refresh rate of up to 120 hertz and HDR10+, with main cameras that could be as much as 100MP in resolution.
