The US manufacturer, Qualcomm, recently announced the ambitious new 700 series for the mid-high-end segment. Meanwhile, we get to know the first processor of this range, the Snapdragon 710 which is now aimed at the Xiaomi Android smartphone, the next Xiaomi Mi 8 SE.
In an apparent twist of fate, the special edition of Xiaomi Mi 8 (SE), has become the most economical (most accessible) version. Becoming not in the premium versionbut in the low-cost version or Lite version of the next top-end Android from this manufacturer.
The level of information leakage has been absurdly high, and it is already a Herculean task to try to summarize everything in each article. More than ever, when we’ve just published a play, we already have two or three equally compelling new information leaks.
Having said that, we would like to apologize to our readers for the high volume of content dedicated to Xiaomi. However, as a brand that will present two smartphones, the new Mi Band 3 and the new MIUI 10, it is impossible to escape the theme.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710 to be the “heart” of Xiaomi Mi 8 SE
After a few moments, we have seen several real images. Here from hands-on to the press images, we now have more information. All this based on the information repository SlashLeaks and Chinese social networks like Weibo or international Twitter. We also have the contribution of the international press such as Miaopai as well as GizmoChina. Now it is confirmed the presence of different processors in both Xiaomi Mi 8.
While the Xiaomi Mi 8 will bring the mobile platform Snapdragon 845 from Qualcomm, the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE will opt for the new processor Snapdragon 710. It will, for all intents and purposes, the first Android smartphone to hit the market with this new mobile platform.
Is this the Xiaomi Mi 8 and Xiaomi Mi 8 SE?
Both Android smartphones will be presented tomorrow, May 31, 2018. They will arrive in the Chinese market from June 5 (Mi 8), and from June 8 (Mi 8 SE). Meanwhile, new images continue to emerge about Android device.
With rounded corners and a reduced bezel. Here both variants of Xiaomi Mi 8 and Mi 8 SE will be quite attractive. Here we can see the main aesthetic differences between both Android devices. The larger will have a much more rounded shape while the smaller will have a more rectangular appearance.
It also seems to confirm the presence of the 3D facial recognition system on both mobile devices. It should be noted that this “notch” has a considerable width, to accommodate all these sensors that will mediate the 3D mapping of the user’s face.
3D facial recognition on both Android smartphones
At this moment we consider it extremely probable the presence of this new system of unblocking and authentication of the user. On the other hand, the fingerprint reader / biometric sensor under the screen seems to have been discarded. This, unless Xiaomi presents us with a third version, besides the standard and the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE.
However, leaks of information begin to be very consistent, giving account of only two Android smartphones. In none of them is mentioned the fingerprint reader under the screen, something that may disappoint some fans.
Snapdragon 710 stands out for the economy and AI
Still, it is certain that the Chinese technology is developing this technology. It should apply the same as soon as possible in a product aimed at the consumer market. Until then, we can feel the power and added value of Qualcomm ‘s Snapdragon 710.
Being this Snapdragon 710 a processor that is placed immediately above the series 6xx and immediately below the series 8xx. It has a total of 8 processing cores and a maximum processing frequency of 2.2 GHz.
The most economical Android smartphone, the Mi 8 SE, will be the first mobile device to hit the market with this new Snapdragon 710.
The technical specifications of the Xiaomi Mi 8 have since been reaffirmed in the temporary protection film for Android smartphones.
Xiaomi Mi 8 will bring a dual GPS module
Moreover, the Xiaomi Mi 8 (and possibly also the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE), will be the first Android smartphone with a dual GPS module. At the moment we do not know what the implications and advantages for the consumer will be with this new technology.
Something that could improve the user experience, especially for those who use the Android smartphone as a navigation system. For now, we look forward to more information on this topic.
