It’s no secret that Xiaomi works on its own processors. This is not surprising, since companies such as Huawei or Samsung which sell the most smartphones worldwide have been following the same path for years with great results.
The question was whether it would only be a Xiaomi experiment for the mid-range or if they would begin to include it in higher ranges. Today we will answer your questions as deep insight on Xiaomi processors, so let’s show them to you.
We have never seen a Xiaomi with its own processor, but seeing how they update their versions of Android one should not worry whether they use Qualcomm, MediaTek or their own processors. It seems that there will be two versions of it, one more powerful and another more normal.
The first version would have the denomination V670. It would be an octacore chip with 28nm architecture. It would have four more powerful Cortex-A53 cores and four less powerful cores. The GPU … Guess! A Mali-T860 at 800MHz which is not bad, but does not stand out.
The surprise would be in the most powerful version, called V970. In this case the processor would be manufactured with 10nm technology. It would also be octacore, but in this case the main cores would be newer and more powerful. We speak of Cortex-A73 at 2.7GHz and four Cortex-A53 at 2.0GHz. In the case of GPU, we find the same as in the Huawei Mate 9, the Mali G71 MP12.
To date, this GPU is the only one able to face the latest Adreno from Qualcomm. The problem is that with the output of the Snapdragon 835, surely this Xiaomi processor is not the top of the market, so we hope that the future Xiaomi Mi 6 will not break the alliance with Qualcomm.
