Xiaomi’s popular mobile phones have won the first launch of the Snapdragon mobile processor several times. According to the latest news in the supply chain, Xiaomi will release the iterative flagship Xiaomi Mi 9 in the first half of next year, which will be equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150 processor, and is expected to be launched in China.
It is understood that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150 processor is based on TSMC’s 7nm FinFET process technology. It adopts a three-cluster core design similar to the Kirin 980 mobile platform. It has two large cores, two medium cores, and four small cores. In the GeekBench database, the Snapdragon 8150 tester uses an 8-core architecture with a processor base frequency of 1.78 GHz, a single-threaded run of 3,697, and a multi-threaded run of 10,469. Compared with the previous generation of Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip, the theoretical single-core performance of Snapdragon 845 is improved by nearly 50%, and multi-core performance is improved by nearly 25%.
With the increasing performance of modern smartphones, more and more photographers like this new type of photography tool that is more portable and does not require complicated later. On the newly released Xiaomi Mi MIX 3, the core sensor of the rear main camera is still the Sony IMX363, with 1.4µm unit pixel area, Dual Pixel dual-core focus, four-axis optical image stabilization and optical zoom. Although the lens sensor has not been updated, its algorithm has been upgraded to a large extent, and the 960fps slow-motion video capture function has been realized by inserting frames, supporting the handheld super night scene, and the imaging quality has improved significantly.
On the next generation of flagship mobile phone Xiaomi Mi 9, Xiaomi will use the rear three camera combination for the first time. The main camera sensor is Sony’s IMX586 with 48MP effective pixels. The sensor has a 1/2.0-inch CMOS and uses a “Quad Bayer” 4-pixel color filter. In the dark environment, four pixels of the same color can be arranged adjacent to each other to achieve the equivalent of 12MP and a single pixel size of 1.6. The µm sensor has excellent resolution and good night shooting ability.
