Xiaomi said on its official Weibo account that it will unveil its own chip at its spring product launch.
The poster shows the keyword “My heart is surging”, which is the slogan used by Xiaomi when it launched its self-developed chip surge S1.
According to public information, Xiaomi held the “My Heart Surges” press conference in Beijing on February 28, 2017, and officially released the independent core “The Surge S1”.
The Surge S1 is an eight-core design based on a 28nm process. It consists of four 2.2GHz A53 cores and four 1.4GHz A53 cores. The GPU is quad-core Mali-T860. As the image compression technology is added at the same time, the memory bandwidth footprint can be reduced.
The chip, first used in the Mi 5C, comes four years after the company introduced its own chip, which is expected to be used in the company’s new products to be released on March 29.
At least three new flagship models will be unveiled at the event: the Mi Mix, the Mi 11 Pro and the Mi 11 Ultra. The Mi 11 series, dubbed the “King of Android”, will have a dramatic video boost.
Therefore, it is not ruled out that MII will use self-developed chips. Details will be announced at the new product release conference on March 29, when MII notebook PRO and new generation of MII air conditioning will also appear on the same stage.
