Spreadtrum Communications Inc (Nasdaq:SPRD), a fabless semiconductor provider in China, said on Thursday that Samsung has started shipping Spreadtrum's 40nm 2.5G baseband, the SC6530, in two of its feature phone models, the Samsung E1282 (GT-E1282T) and E1263 Trios (GT-E1263B), for sale.
Financial details of this selection were not available.
The company said that it also supplied Samsung with basebands supporting China's 3G TD-SCDMA standard for its flagship smartphones, the Samsung GALAXY S III, the Samsung GALAXY Note and the recently launched GALAXY Note II.

Also, the SC6530 incorporates an ARM9 processor for high performance and supports quad-band GSM/GPRS, multi-SIM function, HVGA display, H.264 decode and integrates an audio PA.
The company said that its SC6530 is shipping now in Samsung E1282 (GT-E1282T) and E1263 Trios (GT-E1263B), for sale.
