The segment of the mid-range is about to undergo an important evolution, and all thanks to Qualcomm . The signature announced at the end of last February the birth of a new family of mobile platforms under the Snapdragon 700 brand, which would be destined to give life to the new generation of mobile phones super-mid-range .
Until now, however, we did not know much about the processors that would form this new saga. But thanks to the people of XDA-Developers , today we not only discover the details of the new Qualcomm mobile platform , but we have the first hints about the smartphones that could premiere it.
For months, we have been collecting data and information of all kinds regarding the Snapdragon 670 , a powerful processor that could well be considered high-end, despite being in the middle segment of the Qualcomm catalog. What we did not know until now is that the Snapdragon 670 may never see the light , Given the It will come under the name of Qualcomm Snapdragon 710.
And if that was not enough, just a few days ago we forward you what Xiaomi was working on the development of a couple of devices , whose brain would be the Snapdragon 670. To this day, however, the firmware of these two terminals, codenamed sirius Y comet , has been modified to refer to the new Snapdragon 710 processor . Therefore, it is a fact that Xiaomi will launch at least two terminals with this chip inside it.
Considering this sudden change of name by Qualcomm, and that we already knew practically all the data of the Snapdragon 670, today it is possible to confirm that the new Snapdragon 710 will be a 10-nanometer, eight-core processor , two of them Cortex-A75 modified, and six Cortex-A55, a configuration that, on the other hand, is quite unusual.
And now that we know the data of the new Qualcomm mobile platform, What about Xiaomi smartphones? As I said before, the brand is working on at least two terminals with this processor, and thanks to the filtered firmware we have had access to more information about it. According XDA , these would be the key aspects of Comet Y Sirius :
Today, it is practically impossible to find out which devices we are referring to knowing only their specifications . It is necessary to dwell on the fact that one of the models-Sirius-will have a notch on the screen, a feature that, until now, we only have proof of its inclusion in the Mi 7. Therefore, it would not be unreasonable to think that it could it is a slightly cropped version of the brand’s next flagship phone – it is speculated that it could be the Xiaomi Mi Note 4, although the battery capacities seem somewhat scarce for this future model.
On the other hand, since it is indicated that smartphones will be members of the “Mi” family , it is possible that we could be before sagas of totally new devices, independent of the Mi 7, Mi 6X, Mi Note 4, Mi Max 3 and others. I’m afraid we’ll have to wait until we know more information about it.
