The info comes from Digital Chat Station, the Chinese leaker, who revealed the info in a Weibo post earlier today. While the Mi 11 or whatever it will be called will be the first Chinese smartphone to be powered by the Snapdragon 875 processor, Samsung’s Galaxy S21 series will be the first to feature the chipset globally.
We are not too surprised at the news as processor exclusivity has become a thing that also occurs at the mid-range level. However, there is no info on how long the exclusive period will last but our guess is a month at most. Lest we forget, the Redmi K30 5G Racing announced back in May is still the only phone powered by the Snapdragon 768G Mobile Platform.
The Snapdragon 875 will be officially unveiled in December. The processor will have 8 cores in a 1+3+4 arrangement. It will be a 5nm chipset and will also come along with the Snapdragon X60 5G modem.
