New details on Intel SoFIA SoCs

Intel is not happy with the current situation on the smartphone market – companies like Samsung, Qualcomm and Apple provide all the chips that power the handsets in your pockets and Intel is clearly a loser on this market. To counter this situation the US processor maker has developed the SoFIA line of systems-on-chip (SoC). While the line was first announced in the summer of 2014, the first details on the new hardware surface now.

Developed along with Rockchip, the SoFIA line includes three chips – SoFIA 3G, SoFIA 3G-R and SoFIA LTE. All of them will be produced on 28 nm tech process and will have two computational cores except for SoFIA LTE, which will have a quad-core version too.

The names of the chips say a lot – SoFIA 3G is a 3G-enabled solution, designed for use in smartphones that cost as much as USD 129. The chip has two 64-bit cores at 1 GHz, a single-channeled 32-bit memory controller for LPDDR2-800 memory and Mali-400 MP2 graphics. The processor is compatible with 1280 x 720 and 1920 x 1080 pixel resolutions and supports eMMC 4.41 flash memory, up to 13 MP rear cameras and up to 5 MP front cameras. Devices on SoFIA 3G will also be able to shoot Full HD video at 30 FPS (720p at 60 FPS) in the H.264 format. The list of other supported features includes Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, a GPS receiver, HSPA+ and FM radios.

SoFIA 3G will likely debut at MWC 2015, while the other two SoFIA solutions will appear at the end of summer 2015 for the back-to-school season.
