Xiaomi 12 series is also 'coming soon' with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip introduced at Qualcomm's ongoing Snapdragon Tech Summit will power several flagship Android devices next year. Realme has already confirmed that its GT 2 Pro will have the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip at the helm, and now Xiaomi's Founder and CEO, Mr. Lei Jun, has also confirmed the use of Qualcomm's freshly announced flagship chip on the Xiaomi 12.
Mr. Jun didn't divulge anything about the Xiaomi 12 but said the Xiaomi 12 series "will be the world's first smartphones" to have the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC under the hood.
.@Qualcomm has always been one of the most important partners of Xiaomi. Today I'm proud to announce that after months of joint effort between Xiaomi and Qualcomm, Xiaomi 12 Series will be the world's first smartphones powered by the new @Snapdragon 8 5G Gen 1 mobile platform. pic.twitter.com/U7l3BytRce— leijun (@leijun) December 1, 2021
The CEO didn't reveal the Xiaomi 12 series' launch date either, but rumor has it that the smartphone will debut on December 12. And while we are yet to get any confirmation on that, the company's official Twitter handle posted a short video clip, saying the Xiaomi 12's mass production has kicked off and it's "coming soon."
While Mr. Jun says that the Xiaomi 12 series will be the world's first to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, that may not be the case since Motorola has announced a December 9 event to unveil the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1-powered Edge X30, unless Xiaomi is already geared up to introduce the Xiaomi 12 before next Thursday.
OnePlus, Oppo, and iQOO have also confirmed to launch Snapdragon 8 Gen 1-powered smartphones without getting into the details. nubia said it will use the new flagship chip on its Z series, while ZTE announced it will launch an Axon series smartphone with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 next year.
