Leadcore Introduces LC1810, LC1811, LC1813, and LC1913 SoCs for Smartphones and Tablets

Mediatek, Rockchip, AllWinner among others are now well-known Chinese ARM SoC manufacturers for tablets, smartphones and set-top boxes. However, you may never have head about Leadcore Technology, a company based in Shanghai with over 1,000 employees, and a subsidiary of Datang Telecom Technology & Industry Group (Another company I had never heard of). The company has “recently” announced two dual core Cortex A9 SoCs for smartphones: LC1810 and lc1811, and two quad core Cortex A7 SoC for tablets: LC1813 and LC1913.


LC1810 and LC1811 come with the following features:

  • Dual-core Cortex A9 up to 1.2 GHz
  • MALI-400 MP2 GPU
  • LPDDR2 (both) and DDR3/LPDDR for LC1811
  • Maximum screen resolution:
    • LC1810 – 1080p
    • LC1811 – 1280×800 (WXGA)
  • 1080p video encode and decode
  • Camera:
    • LC1810 – Up to 20MP
    • LC1811 – Up to 8MP
  • Video Out – HDMI 1.4a, 3D HD
  • Network – GSM + GSM DSDA (Both), TD-HSPA+ (LC1810), and TD-HSPA (LC1811)
  • 40nm LP CMOS process
  • 12mm x 12mm BGA package

Strangely both SoCs are said to only support Android 4.0 (ICS).


LC1913 and LC11813 tablet SoCs have the following features:

  • Quad-core Cortex A7 up to 1.2 GHz
  • MALI-400 MP2 GPU
  • LPDDR2/DDR3 (both) and LPDDR for LC1813
  • Maximum screen resolution – 1280×800 (WXGA)
  • 1080p video encode and decode
  • Camera – Up to 13MP
  • Wi-Fi Display support
  • Built-in USB 2.0 OTG (LC1913 only)
  • Network – TD-HSPA, GSM + GSM DSDS
  • 40nm LP CMOS process
  • Package:
    • LC1813 – 12mm x 12mm BGA package
    • LC1913 – 18mm x 18mm BGA package

Both processors support Android 4.2. The only difference between LC1813 and LC1913 appears to be USB support, which led the company to use a larger package.

You can get more information about Leadcore INNOPOWER LC1810 and LC1811 SoC on the company’s product page (in Chinese). But I can’t find anything about LC1913 or LC1813 on their site.

    You are fast 🙂 I just went to the show where they announce the chip today.

    I think they actually announced it in April http://www.leadcoretech.com/news_detail.aspx?New_Id=357, but since nobody follows them, the news did not spread.

    Oh… A phone is already available – http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Coolpad-8150D-Andriod-4-0-OS-4-Inch-1-2GHz-Dual-Core-LEADCORE-3G-Smartphone/892781822.html

    The price does not seem very attractive for a dual core.

    Btw, have you learned anything else that may be newsworthy at that show? 🙂

    Hi, this chipset will not be useful for proper 3G…. only in China. But new player is always good.
    Anything new in mips world?

    Datang was once a major player in Chinese telecom industry, along with ZTE and Huawei. I had a few acquaintances worked there.

    Not that I know of, but since both MIPS and PowerVR belongs to Imagination Technology, it should not be too long before we start to see MIPS CPU + PowerVR GPU SoC popping up.

    The only Datang I’ve heard of before is Datang Power, but that’s a completely different business…

    Datang/CATT is still a major player, and a significant contributor at 3GPP.
    To my knowledge, they used to focus mainly on TDSCDMA/TDLTE, so China Mobile is their main customer (keep in mind it’s the biggest operator in the world !).
    Many big vendors are still unknown in Europe/US. For example, do you know Potevio ? Yet it’s also a quite big company…
