Once the 2020 smartphone catalog is complete, with the launch of the Huawei Mate 40 this week, all eyes will begin to be on the large top of the range that is set to launch early next year. It seems that this time Xiaomi wants to take the lead and reach the market much earlier than its competitors, allowing it to show off a new processor exclusively.
In the last few hours, countless rumors have emerged about a new Xiaomi device that would become a new flagship of the brand. Some media speak that it could be the Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 but it is most likely that it is the Xiaomi Mi 11 , the successor to the Xiaomi Mi 10 that this year has taken a great leap in quality.
Whatever its name, there are different reports that claim that we are surely facing the first phone to sport the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 chipset. Recall that in previous years Samsung has been one of the first manufacturers to work with the latest chipsets of the brand while last year, curiously, the ZTE Axon 10s became the smartphone that released the Snapdragon 865.
Xiaomi Mi 11 with Snapdragon 875?
That Xiaomi is going to use the best Qualcomm processor of 2021 is not a mystery, since its top of the range always mount the most powerful processors of the American firm, but that it is the first to do so is a novelty. Apparently there is a big race among smartphone manufacturers to get the Snapdragon 875 chipset and now the well-known leakster Digital Chat Station has said that the Xiaomi Mi 11 , or whatever the device is called, will be the one to get the coveted chipset first.
According to the insider, the Xiaomi Mi 11 will debut first in China with the Snapdragon 875 on board and will enjoy a period of exclusivity. This CPU would be presented in November while the Chinese brand’s Mi 11 would be announced at the end of January, thus advancing its presentation to become the first mobile on the market to incorporate the Snapdragon 875 on board before Samsung does.
Some other leaked specifications of the Xiaomi Mi 11 would be a 2K screen with a high refresh rate of at least 120 Hz, a fast charge of more than 60W and an improved camera equipment with an emphasis on increasing the equipment’s zoom. As far as the processor is concerned, this chipset is based on the 5nm process and is expected to be at least 23% more powerful than its predecessor. The chipset could consist of one Cortex-X1 core, three Cortex-A78 cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores.
