Not Single Chip

This is very cool but its not exactly a single chip phone.

You still need a PA, power management chip and memory. You'd also need an application processor if you wanted a feature phone.

Now that i've clarified that, i must say i am happy to see this. They've been talking a single chips transceiver since the mid-90's and here it is. I assume its RF CMOS. I wonder how well it performs? Some of the transceiver chips which have been replaced were usualy made from bicmos or bipolar processes which used to offer better performance.

True. This diagram illustrates it pretty well:
