Xiaomi plans to launch three Snapdragon 870-powered smartphones by the end of the year. Gizmochina writes about this. The exact timing and specifications are still unknown.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 is a 7nm chipset for budget flagships. This is an overclocked version of the Snapdragon 865 Plus, clocked at 3.2GHz, 100Hz faster than its predecessor. It also features an Adreno 650 GPU and an X55 5G modem with support for next-generation networks.
As the newspaper notes, the processor is used to produce «killer» flagships, which are much cheaper than premium smartphones. Previously, the company has already released two similar devices — Mi 10S and Redmi K40.
Xiaomi is not the only company to release smartphones based on Snapdragon 870. Motorola, OPPO, IQOO have already released devices with this chipset or are developing them.
