UNISOC, a company born out of the merger between RDA Micro and Spreadtrum Communications, has recently introduced Tiger T310 processor for 4G smartphones.
The quad core processor is somewhat unique as it comes with a single Cortex-A75 core coupled with three Cortex-A55 cores using dynamIQ technology.
UNISOC Tiger T310 key features include:
- CPU – 1x Arm Cortex-A75 core @ up to 2.0 GHz, 3x Arm Cortex-A53 cores @ up to 1.8 GHz in dynamIQ configuration
- GPU – TBD
- Cellular Connectivity – TDD-LTE, FDD-LTE, TD-SCDMA, WCDMA, CDMA, GSM
- Camera – Dual and triple camera support
- Security – TEE, face unlocking
- Manufacturing Process – TSMC 12-nanometer process
UNISOC Tiger T310 is said to deliver a 120% single-core performance improvement over the current mainstream 4-core processor, and a 20% multi-core performance improvement. The processor’s battery life is said to be 20% better than mainstream 8-core processors, and 15% higher than mainstream 4-core processors under similar scenarios.
That’s about all we know at the time of writing, and the company did not provide any availability information.

Jean-Luc started CNX Software in 2010 as a part-time endeavor, before quitting his job as a software engineering manager, and starting to write daily news, and reviews full time later in 2011.
That’s a logical choice, and one that was bound to materialize with the new DynamIQ fabric.
Features list cites Cortex-A53 (typo) rather than Cortex-A55.
This is what qualcomm and mediatek should be making.
DynamIQ being quite new on the market, chips target rather the higher-end half of it, and there people are used to have 8 cores at least. Despite a 1+3 configuration, like this one, is probably very close in performance.
