SHANGHAI, Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Spreadtrum Communications ("Spreadtrum"), a leading fabless semiconductor company in China with advanced technology in 2G, 3G, and 4G wireless communication standards, today announced that its WCDMA SoC Platform has been adapted by Samsung's newly released Z3 smartphone.

Samsung Z3 Tizen-based smartphone 5.0" SAMOLED models, designed with Spreadtrum's WCDMA 28nm quad-core SoC platform, feature a 1GB RAM/8GB Storage, a micro SD slot up to 128GB, a built-in battery of 2600mAh, supporting 1080p HD video and an 8 megapixel camera.  

The highly integrated WCDMA platform consists 28nm 1.3GHz quad-core WCDMA/HSPA(+) GSM/GPRS baseband chip SC7730SI, power management chip SC2723S, RF chip SR3532S and Spreadtrum's first 3in1 connectivity chip SC2331S.

The SC2331S connectivity chip incorporates Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.0 A2DP,LE, and FM RDS solutions with standard peripherals, simplified hardware design and product calibration.

For the first time, Spreadtrum embedded its self-developed 8M internal image signal processor (ISP) to its baseband chip. It is a specialized digital signal processor used for image processing in mobile phones' digital cameras. The pipelined image processing engine is made to achieve high speed image signal; auto exposure/auto focus/auto white balance can be done by this special circuit.
