Xiaomi will update Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 this year. Many people are not optimistic about this. It is difficult for clever women to cook without rice. The success of a model depends not only on design and workmanship but also on chips. The reputation of Snapdragon 888 is so bad, why did Xiaomi choose to release MIX4 this year?
He have to ask a question first: Why is Snapdragon 888 the generation that rolls over? There is only one main reason: under the same heat dissipation conditions, the continuous performance of the Snapdragon 888 is beaten by the Snapdragon 870. Whether it is the average frame rate or the energy efficiency ratio, the Snapdragon 888 is not as good as the previous generation.
This phenomenon occurs because the power consumption of Snapdragon 888 under extreme load is ridiculously high, which can be regarded as the ashes version of Snapdragon 865.
However, the Snapdragon 888 does have a real improvement in architecture. Looking at the data, you can know that if it is under low load, the power consumption of the Snapdragon 888 is even as good as the A14. It should be noted that the premise is to drop to the level of Snapdragon 865.
This explains why Xiaomi has to launch a cooling patch for the Snapdragon 888 model. The Snapdragon 888 after frequency reduction is the real 5nm chip, but the performance is a bit weak.
But if you can ignore this, Snapdragon 888 is indeed a better chip, but mobile phone manufacturers are reluctant to give up running points. Personal guess, the subsequent launch of Snapdragon 888 models, there should be a frequency reduction plan, Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 is no exception.
Now that the chip problem has been solved, we have to look at the motivation of Xiaomi to release Xiaomi Mi Mix 4, which can be divided into three points.
First of all, for domestic mobile phone manufacturers, this year is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hit the high-end, because Huawei’s high-end phones are out of stock and 5G models are out of stock, giving up a large share of the mid-to-high-end market. The tuyere is right in front of you, how can Xiaomi miss it?
Secondly, the positioning of the MIX series does not represent performance improvement but represents Xiaomi’s design innovation. If it mass-produces an under-screen camera and achieves a 100% full screen, who cares what the chip is?
Third, everyone says that Snapdragon 888 is not acceptable, but you must know that Qualcomm’s next-generation flagship chips will also use Samsung’s 4nm process. Who can guarantee that the Snapdragon 895 will not cause problems? After all, domestic mobile phone manufacturers have no choice but to bite the bullet. Are you looking forward to Xiaomi Mi MIX 4?
