Not everyone will remember the Xiaomi Mi5c, launched last February 2017, which was the first phone to come with the company's own processor. The Surge S1 caused quite a stir back then, there was a lot of speculation and speculation about the fate of the Xiaomi SoC and to this day, experts still don't consider the family viable. But the development and design has not stopped despite this, they still hope that they can break away from the shackles of other manufacturers.
Recent rumours suggest that the new SoC could be unveiled in February this year, and what better way than in the recently announced Mi 6X phone. What's more, it's conceivable that it could be unveiled alongside the Mi7 at this year's MWC.
Following the launch of the Surge S1 chipset, Xiaomi CEO Leia Jun said that they will continue to develop more chipsets in the future and that the Surge S2 will be a more powerful chipset than the Surge S1 that powers the mid-range Xiaomi Mi 5C. Rumours have it that the Surge S2, based on TSMC's 16nm manufacturing technology, will have eight cores, consisting of four Cortex A73 cores clocked at 2.2 GHz and four Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz.
Other features of the Surge S2 include Mali G71 MP8 graphics, UFS 2.1 storage and LPDDR4 RAM. However, it does not support CDMA networks. According to these specifications, the Surge S2 has the performance of Huawei Kirin 960 will be identical to the set of cards.
The rumours are about Mi 6X phone, although the logical name would be Mi 6C, but for some reason the public/manufacturer finds the X more attractive, after all, everyone is going twin after iPhone X. (this constant monkeying around is incomprehensible).) So this year's mobile congress has more surprises in store for us, especially a combo like the Mi 6X and Surge S2 Soc. And the Mi 6X rumours continue, more and more pictures of the alleged phone are emerging, and even silicone cases have started to be made based on it.
