Xiaomi is often the first to adopt its smartphones to the new Qualcomm hardware. So, most recently, Redmi K30 5G was the first on the Snapdragon 765G – a mid-range chipset with a built-in 5G modem. And now, the Chinese company’s ambitions provide primacy in the use of Snapdragon 865.
In an interview with Chinese media, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun reaffirmed that the presentation of Mi 10 with this chip on board will take place in the first quarter of 2020 (January-March). but most importantly, it will be the first device on this chip in the world. Given the fact that the official promotion campaign on Mi 10 has not even begun, and the presentation of the Samsung Galaxy S20 will take place on February 11, this statement looks very strange.
So, is Xiaomi cheating? Context is important in this matter. The fact is that the company’s management takes into account those smartphones that can be purchased and not those that are only presented “on paper”. So it was, in particular, with Mi 9 and Snapdragon 855: Xiaomi called it the first on the Snapdragon 855, although Lenovo introduced the Z5 Pro GT two months earlier, but it did not bring it to the end consumer.
A similar situation can be in our case: according to rumors, the Galaxy S20 will go on sale on March 13, and the version on the Snapdragon 865 may debut even later. Earlier, claims to the primacy in the issue of Snapdragon 865 were announced by ZTE and Meizu. Who will be the first? Make your bets, gentlemen!
