Xiaomi releases Pinecone SoC teaser video, days before official unveiling


It seems that Xiaomi is ready for the unveiling of its proprietary processor dubbed Xiaomi Pinecone SoC, that will be unveiled on February 28. To further promote their own chipset they have began teasing the public with Twitter hints and also their first ever teaser video for the upcoming processor.

The video doesn’t really reveal any specifics on the processor but it tries to show us how powerful it really is. According to previous articles, the Pinecone SoC should be placed somewhere above the Mediatek P10 and near to Snapdragon 625 in terms of performance. So, it will basically be a mid-range chipset.

In the video we can also see Wang Feng, two-time World Memory Championship Winner, who is asked to memorize two sets of 100 numbers shown on two large displays! Feng completes the task without much trouble since he’s already a 3 times world record holder for recalling 300 of 400 spoken numbers, memorizing 500 numbers in five minutes and 2660 numbers in an hour!

We expect Xiaomi’s Pinecone SoC to feature 8 x Cortex A53 architecture with integrated baseband (Cat. 6 support) but we will know all of its official specs in just a few days time.

      are you forgetting there are 2 versions of pinecone…

        on GSMArena …

        some say it’s a 28nm SoC , others talk of a BEAST with Mali G71 and 10nm node ; that’d be epic killer SoC , esp if it can sell for the CHEAP on the mi5c (any price BELOW $250 would slay ALL competition across the entire DAMN GLOBE!!! )

          it would be 16nm or 14nm. its completely impossible to go for 10nm node.

          they want to use the tried and tested manufacturing process. (snapdragon 625 is on 14nm)

          one is going to be equal to sd 650 or slightly better than 650 vs pincone v970.

            if it’s a SOC with A73 cores and G71 GPU , i’m gonna rob a damn bank just for buying a phone equipped with it :p !
