On December 1, Qualcomm will release the flagship processor Snapdragon 875. The first commercial manufacturer of Snapdragon 875 is considered to be Xiaomi. Today, a Weibo blogger said that the company’s first phone with this chip will come with an upgraded ultra-wide-angle lens. Now, the latter will have a resolution of 48 megapixels. Also, the sensor will have a unit pixel area of 0.8μm.
According to past practice, Xiaomi usually launches Qualcomm’s new-generation Snapdragon flagship platform for its so called digital (Mi) series. This time, as you guess, it will be the Xiaomi Mi 11 (or the Mi 20, who knows). It is speculated that the ultra-wide-angle main camera of the Xiaomi Mi 11 will be 48MP. In fact, this is a significant upgrade compared to the 13MP of the previous generation Mi 10.
In addition, the other big expectation of the Xiaomi Mi 11 is the Snapdragon 875 processor. This is the first time that Xiaomi will use a 5nm smartphone chip.
Snapdragon 875 Parameters
According to the previously leaked information, the Snapdragon 875 adopts a 1+3+4 three-cluster architecture. It will use the Cortex X1 super core for the first time. Also, it will come with the Cortex A78 large core and the Cortex A55 energy efficiency core.
When Will Xiaomi Mi 11 Come?
By convention, the Xiaomi Mi 11 will be released around February. However, if the Samsung Galaxy S21 series is released in January, then Xiaomi may also launch the Xiaomi Mi 11 in January.
Apart from this, the alleged Xiaomi Mi 11 was spotted in GeekBench 5 today. The same blogger published a screenshot showing that the Xiaomi phone showed astonishing results in this benchmark platform. A new Xiaomi machine with the model M2012K11C is said to come with a Qualcomm 8-core processor. If nothing accidental, we are dealing with the Snapdragon 875 chip and the Xiaomi Mi 11 smartphone. Running score data shows that the new machine has a single-core score of 1105 and a multi-core score of 3512. And it runs on the Android 11 operating system.
