Every year, Qualcomm announces its new upcoming mobile chip during its annual Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit. For this year tech summit, Qualcomm has unveil the latest mobile chip, Snapdragon 865. During the annual tech summit, Qualcomm has unveiled that Xiaomi will be the first smartphone maker to use this processor.
Interestingly, now we know which phone from Xiaomi will be utilising the latest Snapdragon 865 processor. The Mi 10 will be using this new chipset which is expected to launch during the Mobile World Congress 2020. As usual, we can expect the Xiaomi Mi 10 to launch in February 2020.
Apparently, the Snapdragon 865 processor which will be used in the Mi 10 will not come with the 5G modem.
