Xiaomi’s announcement came just minutes after the official presentation of Qualcomm’s new SoC during the first day of the Snapdragon Summit, the North American manufacturer of chips, components and technologies for mobile devices.
According to rumors, the new smartphones Xiaomi Mi 11 and Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro may be presented in January, with a possible arrival on the market later this month, or early February. Now, we already know what their “heart” will be.
The processor, chipset or mobile platform (SoC) is the most important component of any and all smartphones. It is the engine that will dictate the performance of the terminal, facilitate the arrival of new software updates and ensure stable use.
