As the flagship of the first tier of Snapdragon 8, Mi 12 series has excellent performance, photography, screen, etc. The Pro version is also equipped with a 2K LTPO screen
But judging from the latest news, the Mi 12 May soon be “obsolete,” as the Mi 13 with a newer generation of chips is already on its way.
According to the news of @digital Chat station, a well-known blogger, “There are three flagship models in the next generation at present. This time, I see two files with the suffix SM8550 and a 2K large screen version. The single hole in the center and the upper and lower borders are very narrow.
The model in this news is believed to be most likely mi 13 series, which will still maintain three specifications, which is expected to be similar to mi 12 series planning.
The difference this time is that both models support 2K high-resolution screens, and the standard version can also use a sharper and more detailed screen.
As for SM8550, the next generation of Snapdragon 8, it is currently considered to be Snapdragon 8 Gen2, TSMC 4nm process, continuing the “1+3+4” three-cluster architecture design, and the CPU super-core may be ARM Cortex X series, which has stronger overall performance than the latest Snapdragon 8+.
It should be noted that, based on past progress, the Mi 13 should not be released until December.
