From looking at the spreadtrum site: http://www.spreadtrum.com/en/products/basebands/view/sc7715

The fact that they integrated the PMU and modem in a single chip is pretty interesting. I guess they still need an external RF IC for the WIFI/BT/FM/GPS RF segment -- but its not clear... maybe the external multimode RF transceiver they show somehow also covers 2.4GHz band?

Yes, your proposal looks very logical and should be true. But other part of story is marketing the device. If they really exploit this and people adept to this, it will be win big win for this organization.
