Yesterday, in an interview with Qualcomm, Xiaomi’s founder, Chairman, and CEO, Lei Jun, confirmed that the Xiaomi Mi 10 will come with the Snapdragon 865 SoC. This smartphone will be the first device to use the Snapdragon 865 flagship platform.
Recall that at the Snapdragon Technology Summit, Xiaomi’s president, Lin Bin, revealed that the Xiaomi Mi 10 will come with the Snapdragon 865 flagship platform for the first time in 2020. While reviewing the cooperation between Xiaomi and Qualcomm, Lei Jun found that Xiaomi’s previous digital series all adopts the Snapdragon flagship processors. In recent years, some of the most important and earliest Snapdragon phones come from Xiaomi.
For example, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S debuted the Snapdragon 845. Xiaomi Mi 9 debuts Snapdragon 855, and Xiaomi Mi 10 will debut Snapdragon 865.
