Spreadtrum Communications has launched two low-cost Android smartphone platforms, the SC8805G for TD-SCDMA and the SC6810 for EDGE/Wi-Fi.
 
The two 40nm-based 600MHz solutions are based on a low-power, cost-efficient architecture that lower total phone cost to $40-$50.
 
The SC8805G targets China’s growing demand for low-cost smartphones supporting China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA standard while the SC6810 is designed for emerging markets where 3G rollouts are still in development.
 
Spreadtrum also reaffirmed previously-released fourth-quarter revenue guidance of $188 million to $194 million and gross margin guidance of 41%.
