The Xiaomi Mi 5C was launched with the Xiaomi Surge S1 processor. Xiaomi is going to launch more smartphones with that processor, and even some Nokia smartphones would count in the 2018 with a processor Xiaomi Surge. Well, now come data on the new Xiaomi Surge S2, which would be the processor that would arrive integrated into the Xiaomi Mi 6C.
Xiaomi Mi 6C: A simple flagship version
The Xiaomi Mi 6C would be a simplified and cheaper version of the current flagship of Xiaomi, the Xiaomi Mi 6. While it is true that there are still data on the technical characteristics that would count the new smartphone, it seems that the Xiaomi Mi 6C would have the processor Xiaomi Surge S2, the new processor manufactured by Xiaomi.
Apparently, the Xiaomi Surge S2 would be an eight-core processor, in two configurations. Four cores would have a Cortex-A73 architecture, and a clock frequency of 2.2 GHz. The other four cores would have a Cortex-A53 architecture, and a clock frequency of 1.8 GHz. The processor would look a lot like Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, so it would still not be a high-end processor, but would already be a processor for high-end smartphones, just as it would be the Xiaomi Mi 6C.
Xiaomi Surge S2 in the Nokia
The new Xiaomi Surge S2 processor would not only be present in the Xiaomi Mi 6C, but would also be present in Nokia smartphones. Probably Nokia would also launch some mid-high-end smartphone with the Xiaomi Surge S2 processor. With an economic price, and officially marketed in Europe, the new Nokia smartphone with Xiaomi Surge S2 processor, could be useful for the processor to become popular and more manufacturers can integrate the processor into their smartphones.
So far, Qualcomm is one of the leading manufacturers of processors on the market. In addition to Qualcomm, MediaTek also manufactures processors. However, MediaTek processors do not appear to be of the quality of Qualcomm’s processors. And if the Xiaomi S2 Surge were the best option for manufacturers who do not want to integrate a Qualcomm processor?
