Derivative of Xiaomi 12 Pro
Qualcomm officially released a new generation of Snapdragon 8 Gen1 flagship processor in early December 2021, which was built using Samsung’s 4nm process, with significant improvements in CPU/GPU compared to Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 888 Plus, and a runtime score that broke the 1 million mark.
According to previous news, Qualcomm will launch an upgraded version of Snapdragon 8 Gen1 in the second half of this year, compared to the current 8 Gen1 processor, the former’s biggest highlight will be the switch to TSMC’s 4nm process.
In addition to the Snapdragon 8 Gen2/8 Gen1 Plus SM8475 gaming phone “Lenovo Halo“, more phones with this chip have been gradually surfacing recently. Xiaomi also has a new Snapdragon SM8475 machine already in the polishing, model L2s, which seems to be a derivative of Xiaomi 12 Pro, but the fastest will not debut until the second half of this year.
The biggest highlight of the new Snapdragon SM8475 processor is that it will be designed with TSMC’s 4nm process. The industry has been skeptical of Samsung’s 4nm process, and now its market performance is not as good as it should be, but don’t be too happy too soon, because earlier there has been news that the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 processor built on TSMC’s 4nm process is not as ideal as everyone thought, compared to Samsung’s 4nm process, TSMC’s version of Snapdragon 8 is more limited, and can only be described as a routine upgrade and a small upgrade.
But these are not important, after all, we are most concerned about this suspected Xiaomi 12 Pro derivative model will bring what configuration has been the appearance of the design, Xiaomi 12 Pro has been on sale in the whole platform, the machine 8GB + 128GB version priced from 4699 yuan.
