Both Xiaomi 10 and Xiaomi 11 released in 2020 have highly competitive prices and balanced configuration, so they are often called “flagship goalkeepers” by netizens. However, the “old goalkeeper” has no plans to retire and is now expected to upgrade to Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 and continue to participate in market competition.
On January 22, it was revealed that Xiaomi’s “old goalkeeper” will launch a new version, and the processor may be replaced with Qualcomm Snapdragon 870. The “old goalkeeper” mentioned here is likely to be the Mi 10 released in early 2020. If this phone is really equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 870, and other configurations remain unchanged, it will still be highly competitive in today’s smart phone market. However, the starting price of the new machine is likely to be lower than the original 3999 yuan (USD $571) .
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 is an upgraded version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus. It uses a 7nm process and an enhanced Qualcomm Kryo 585 CPU. The main frequency of its large core reaches 3.2GHz. As the main frequency increases, the performance will also be enhanced. This chip also supports Qualcomm Snapdragon Elite Gaming, 5G Sub-6GHz, millimeter wave, and AI features.
