When it comes to SoCs for smartphones, there are two main manufacturers for it: Qualcomm and Apple. The former takes the larger piece of the pie since more phones use it. Now, the company has different tiers of processors to offer. The 800 series is the flagship model. The Snapdragon 888 from Qualcomm is the main player from the company this year. Then is the 700 series which is the upper-middle tier chipset which offers 5G and decent gaming as well (for some variants). Now, an article on Gizmochina, a credible source for most Chinese manufacturers, claims to say it has news about the upcoming SoC from the company.
As we all know, the first form of the Snapdragon 888 came with the Mi 11. Xiaomi’s flagship has the latest and greatest when it comes to specs but its source code reveals some information on some future upgrades. According to the article, the source code has some references which direct us to possible future K40 and K40 Pros from the company. Redmi K series is a budget line which features some heavy specs, similar to the Poco lineup. Although, Poco is now separate from the Xiaomi brand altogether. Now, we know for a fact that the K40 Pro would feature the Snapdragon 888.
The Source Code also reveals that there would an SM7350 processor too for a future Xiaomi phone. This is most likely the SD 775. This isn’t announced yet but this seems like the case. It would be for the Xiaomi Redmi K40 model which would have support for 120Hz displays, UFS 3.1 storage and even 12GBs of RAM. We would know the little details about it soon enough but the timeline really does point towards all of this.
