Xiaomi is willing to change the chipset inside their phones with the first ten-core chipset Helio X20 coming from MediaTek
There is no denying that the chipset technology is increasing day by day and of course, we are too familiar with the 4 or 8 core one, but today, I will show you the major breakthrough in the chip market, the representative is Helio X20 from MediaTek. It is the first 10-core chip in the world and it makes Apple ,Samsung, and even Qualcomm. And the main idea I want to mention is about Xiaomi. This big manufacturer is having a good relationship with Qualcomm, but the problem related to overheating is splitting this relationship, and this is a good chance for MediaTek to take a fighting chance of showing their ability.
The report citing industry sources suggests that the upcoming flagship smartphones (such as the Mi 5 and Mi Note Pro’s successor) will likely be powered by MediaTek’slatest chipset. Previous reports however contradict the current one, and have suggested that the upcoming flagship, believed to be dubbed Mi 5, will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor. The sources expect that MediaTek will attract orders for the Helio X20 SoCs from Xiaomi.
The Taiwanese chipmaker launched the new Helio X20 earlier this month and claimed it to be the ‘world’s first mobile processor with tri-cluster CPU architecture’ and first deca-core SoC for smartphones and tablets.It’s worth noting that Xiaomi used the v2.1 or the third edition of the Snapdragon 810 on its Mi Note Pro, and even announced it worked with Qualcomm to refine the processor.
A recent leak suggested that a new Xiaomi handset with Snapdragon 808 SoC would be priced somewhere between the company’s Redmi and Mi series handsets. Earlier this month, a leaked roadmap hinted that Xiaomi, after launching the Mi 4i in India last month, would launch the Xiaomi Mi 4s in June. The Xiaomi Redmi Note series will get a successor named the Redmi Note 2 in July; while the Redmi Note Pro is also on the cards to be launched in the same month.
