Last week, information emerged about a new Leagoo device coming soon, the Leagoo T5c, attracting many users’ attention by being a budget device with good specs. Today, newer information about its specs have emerged with a big surprise: Leagoo T5c is not equipped with a Mediatek chipset! In fact, the surprise is even bigger, as it won’t feature a Qualcomm SoC either. It will come with a CPU known as SC9853i, produced by Spreadtrum who is dedicated to the budget and mid-range smartphone SoCs. So, it becomes the first smartphone with SC9853i onboard! Built on Intel’s 14nm foundry platform, SC9853 excels both in performance and power efficiency!
According to the official data from Spreadtrum, SC9853i is an octa-core chipset with 1.8Ghz frequency. The test result of Antutu benchmark shows that SC9853i is 39% more powerful than MT6750. In fact, the single and multi-core performance of SC9853i is 25% and 36% higher than that of MT6750 respectively. Thanks to Intel’s 14nm FinFET technology, SC9853i’s power efficiency is also predominantly better than the 28nm MTK MT6750.
So, the T5c will be equipped with an 1.8Ghz 8-core SoC, Samsung 13M/OV 2MP rear dual-camera and 5.5″ FHD IPS display from Sharp. Also, it will carry 3GB of RAM together with 32GB of storage. That’s a little behind T5, but it still has a large LG 3000mAh battery with 5V2A quick charge. The good news is that the front fingerprint ID is reserved for its convenient usage.
As a mid-range smartphone, the T5c is a great Value-for-Money device. Most users will be ok with its performance and build quality and its retail price will be as low as $129.99! It is expected to go on mass production on December 5th. Until then, you can make your reservation to become eligible for buying it at just $1.99!
