64-bit Armanda PXA1928 mobile SoC from Marvell announced

Marvell isn’t as often talked about as say Qualcomm or MediaTek, but the fabricator just took a shy at the headlines thanks to a recent release; a 64-bit quad-core mobile chipset.

Unveiled at this year’s Mobile World Congress, the Marvell PXA1928 chipset comes with a 64-bit quad-core cpu with the cores being built on the Cortex A53 architecture from ARM. Operating at a native frequency of 1.5GHz, the A53 cores are accompanied by a Vivante GC5000 GPU which features support for 1080p video encoding as well as decoding.

Much like MediaTek’s recent releases, the Marvell PXA1928 is much more an all-round cpu than the average. It comes with many a front covered, which includes cellular connectivity (LTE TDD/FDD, LTE Cat 4, TD-HSPA+, HSPA+, EDGE), common radio (Bluetooth, WiFi a/c, FM radio), as well as the much sought-after NFC radio.

Consumers can expect devices based on the PXA1928 to start shipping as early as next month, with a majority of them being from rising Chinese brands such as Hisense and Coolpad, with a few from established ones like Lenovo.

    I really hope Lenovo makes a big-battery phone based on this SoC! Maybe a successor to the P780.
