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.
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. Rather, not Mi Mix 3 which premiere is to take place in September, and the new Snapdragon 855 processor will most likely only appear in early 2019.
In my opinion the situation can be repeated. The most likely version looks as follows. At the beginning of the year, Xiaomi will refresh Mi Mix 3, which is still missing and will show Mi Mix 3s with the Snapdragon 855 processor.
According to previous reports, Snapdragon 855 may be renamed Snapdragon 8150, and for the first time will be built a dedicated neural processing unit (NPU), which is said to be similar to the NPU included in Huawei Kirin 970.
