The Mainland China – June 28, 2021 – Going to back, we all know that Samsung is already working on a 200 MP phone camera: and as we all assume, Xiaomi is most probably the first phone company to introduce the sensor. And also, they’ll probably the first company to introduce the new flagship-level processor from Qualcomm. It’s been in the veins of the company to be the first at everything to be its selling point. Fast forward today, some tips suggest Xiaomi will use a 192 MP camera with 16-in-1 binning support and the Snapdragon 895 on their flagship device that may release this year.
Digital Chat Station, a tipster on Weibo, posted yesterday, “Iterative flagship with super large bottom 192mp 16in1→12mp, as well as new imaging technology, so awesome.”
Then today, he added, “A new iteration of SM8450 platform, high-quality hyperboloid single-hole screen, rear matrix lens module, the main camera is a large 200 million pixels.”
If we remember correctly, the SM8350 represents Snapdragon 888. This only means that the codename SM8450 represents Snapdragon 895. And we are 100% sure about it. However, don’t take our words that it will become true. You can still consider this as tentative.
In addition, although Qualcomm released its Snapdragon 888+ and the SM8450 is just a rumor, we will still consider that the chip company is already preparing the entrance of Snapdragon 895.
At the launch event yesterday, the head of Qualcomm even mentioned that the devices with built-in Qualcomm X65 baseband will be officially launched at the end of this year, wherein Snapdragon 895 may come to mind to be the processor of those smartphones.
According to sources, the chip will be tailored into a 4 nm process and will feature the next-generation Kryo 780 CPU cores, which are based on the new ARMv9 architecture, the new Adreno 730 GPU, the next-generation Spectra 680 GPU, and lastly, the new X65 5G modem.
Even if it’s clearly evident that Xiaomi is the first company to use this innovative feature and spec, we are still baffled as to what iteration will it be placed.
Above all, if these come true, we are speculating that the flagship phone will be announced in early December, and will be released before the year ends in China.
