Qualcomm has officially announced that a new series of advanced processors that will be created in the 7 nanometer process will be created by TSMC Foundries. It will be the first Snapdragon processor equipped with 5G connectivity.
Xiaomi ready for Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, will be the first?
Information on the stage of work on the new processor was published at the source itself, at Qualcomm. Exactly on their Weibo social network. The official Xiaomi profile, quickly shared the entry on its board by adding the comment "we expect." The comment was also added to another Qualcomm entry and reads "See you soon". Such a quick and determined reaction of the Chinese giant proves that it will be one of the first manufacturers to use the new Snapdragon 855 processor on its smartphone.
Xiaomi was the first manufacturer of smartphones that presented the device with Snapdragon 710 on board and it was a model Xiaomi Mi 8 SE. It's hard to say what the smartphone will be. Probably not Mi Mix 3 which premiere is to take place in September, and the new Snapdragon 855 processor will most likely only appear at the beginning of the 2019 year.
In my opinion the situation can be repeated. The most likely version looks as follows. At the beginning of the year, Xiaomi will refresh the Mi Mix 3, which is still missing and will show Mi Mix 3s with the Snapdragon 855 processor.
