Xiaomi 12 And 12 Pro Code-named Zeus and Cupid
After the MIX series, Xiaomi’s next flagship should be the digital series: Xiaomi 12 Series, according to the usual is released at the end of the year or early next year, it is believed to have begun preparations.
Considering that the Xiaomi digital series has traditionally been the first commercial model of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 series, there is little doubt that the Xiaomi 12 series will be the first this time as Lenovo executive rigorously claiming, even today unveiled Legion 3 Pro gaming phone’s naming.
This afternoon, according to the blogger Digital Chat Station broke the news that the Xiaomi 12 Series equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 (SM8450) is under development, codenamed Zeus and Cupid respectively, and is expected to correspond to the Xiaomi 12 standard version and Xiaomi 12 Pro version.
But according to the release of the Xiaomi 10/11 series, there should be three models, that is, medium cup, large cup, and very large cup. The very large cup: Xiaomi 12 Ultra might be scheduled for the 2nd quarter of next year or will waiting for Snapdragon 898 Plus SoC.
The reason for the speculation is that many sources say that Snapdragon 898 is built by Samsung’s 4nm process, but because Samsung’s 5nm process performance is not outstanding, so Qualcomm has alternative options. A source close to Samsung’s supply chain said that although Snapdragon 898 chose Samsung, Snapdragon 898 Plus is expected to be replaced by TSMC’s 4nm process, and there will be a corresponding terminal listed in the middle of next year at the earliest.
So it can be guessed that if there are only two Xiaomi 12 series released at the end of the year or early next year, then there may be a mega cup waiting for Snapdragon 898 Plus. In addition, Xiaomi digital series has traditionally been the first commercial model of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 series, so this should be no exception, and may even be the first.
