Besides the SC6821 chip (the one for the $25 phone), Spreadtrum has started work at two new chips: SC7710 and SC7715, both supporting 3G.

The SC7710 chip is a 1GHz single core Cortex A5 CPU that supports WCDMA/HSPA(+) and GSM/EDGE and is well optimized to run well with the ARM Mali 400 GPU for 3D graphics acceleration and supports a 5 megapixel camera, capable of recording 720p videos.

The SC7715 is yet another single core Cortex-A7 running at 1.2 GHz, with support for the same ARM Mali 400 GPU and compatible with WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and FM.

For those who don’t know yet, Firefox OS is a new Linux based mobile operating system, built by using the new HTML5 technology by the Mozilla developers. For now, it is used as default on smartphones with modest hardware specs, developed by LG, ZTE, Alcatel and Geeksphone.
