Xiaomi Mi 6X expected to ship with Xiaomi Surge S2 processor


Xiaomi is gearing up to unveil Surge S2 processor based on octa-core technology. The chipset will most likely be integrated with Xiaomi Mi 6X smartphone and will be showcased at the forthcoming MWC 2018. According to a report published by MyDrivers, the upcoming Xiaomi Surge S2 will be manufactured based on the 16nm process of TSMC. Moreover, the chipset consists of eight cores, which will help in the processing power.

The first four Cortex-A73 cores will run at a clock speed of 2.2GHz, which the remaining four cores will be capable of running at 1.8GHz. The chipset features a Mali G71 MP8 graphics processor. If you look at the Xiaomi Surge S1, the chipset was designed using 28nm process with the final four cores running at 1.4GHz. Hence, you can expect improved speed with less heating. The 14nm processors are capable of producing less heat without sacrificing performance.

If the reports are true, you can expect Xiaomi Mi 6X to ship with Xiaomi Surge S2 processor instead of traditional Snapdragon processor like in the case of Mi 5X. We expect the company to showcase not only the Surge S2 but also Mi 6X at the MWC 2018. To recall, the Lei Jun owned company is participating in the MWC 2018.

According to the leaked renders from a smartphone manufacturer, the Mi 6X will be equipped with a bezel-less 18:9 display. Moreover, the smartphone will carry a dual camera on the rear alongside a fingerprint sensor.

Based on the past history, the Xiaomi Mi 6X will launch in China. The possibility of the launch of the device outside China is bleak considering various aspects. There is a possibility that the smartphone will launch in another name. We will continue to keep track of the developments and provide you with updates. Stay tuned.
