It packs an octa-core processor that feature four Cortex A53 cores running at 2.2 GHz and another four Cortex A53 cores working at 1.4 GHz, along with a Mali-T860 MP4 GPU. The specific chipset supports Cat. 4 LTE modem, LPDDR3 RAM and eMMC 5.0 storage.

The Surge S2 SoC will be built on the 16nm architecture and it could be used in the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 6c and Mi 6s models, scheduled to launch by the end of this year.
