Xiaomi’s Pinecone SoC will compete with Snapdragon 808 chipset

We’ve all heard (and read) a lot so far about Xiaomi Mi 5C, the next smartphone to be unveiled by the Chinese company. Some rumors insist that this phone will pack a Snapdragon 825 SoC but others – today- say that perhaps there will be 2 variants of the device, the second of which will use Pinecone, Xiaomi’s own-made SoC!

So far rumors say that the Xiaomi Pinecone chipset will be a direct competitor to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 SoC, which means that it will be quite a bargain or someone who wants a value for money smartphone (affordable that is), with decent specifications to compete against other devices. In other words we should consider Xiaomi Pinecone SoC as an affordable solution for mid-range smartphones.

The Xiaomi Mi 5C (codenamed Xiaomi Meri) is expected to launch later this month, packing a 5.5 inch full HD display, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of native storage, 13MPixels main camera and an 8MP selfie camera.
