The first phone with the Snapdragon 888 will launch on 28 December
A few weeks ago, when the Snapdragon 888 was announced, Qualcomm announced that one of its manufacturer partners was Xiaomi. Xiaomi himself said that the Mi 11 would be one of the first devices to work with the Snapdragon 888, so there was a leak showing that by the end of the year you could see the Xiaomi Mi 11 with the new chipset.
Now in a post by China’s social media platform Weibo, co-founder Lei Jun confirmed that Xiaomi Mi 11 can be expected to be released on December 28th at 7:30 pm.
Leaks were very low and negligible, but according to the information. There are two variations of the device, standard and professional, both of which support 55 watts of wired charging. In addition, the Mi 11 may have a 120Hz QHD + display. However, December 28th is less than a week, so you don’t have to wait long for a confirmation.
So it might be worth paying attention to the Xiaomi M11 launch to understand what Snapdragon 888 will bring to smartphones next year. Qualcomm has already revealed that it expects improved performance and graphics compared to last year’s Snapdragon 865 processor. And it has also released a benchmark showing chip performance on reference devices. But the Snapdragon 888 platform isn’t just about CPUs and GPUs. Qualcomm is also announcing advances in artificial intelligence and image signal processors on chips to improve photography.
It’s not yet clear where the Xiaomi M11 will be released after China. But you will likely hear about its debut in the UK around December 28. And hearing more about the mobile processor on this phone might give you a better idea of what to expect from your competitor’s Android flagship.
