To everyone’s surprise, a new device has just been leaked under last year’s star series. It’s about a Xiaomi Mi 10 somewhat special and with a hardware renovation that nobody expected at the moment. The new device could keep all its components and renew only its processor. What would the new election be? The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 870! This processor was recently announced and features a slight improvement compared to the star chip of 2020.
This Xiaomi Mi 10 with the Snapdragon 870 does not make much sense
At the moment the information comes through leaks that we cannot treat as official. What we know leaves us with a very bittersweet taste, since it is not a new release novel or with much more advanced features. What is expected is to see a Xiaomi Mi 10 with the only novelty of Snapdragon 870.
The Snapdragon 870 is nothing but a Snapdragon 865 overclockeado. That is, it is a processor whose clock frequency has been raised slightly to be able to give a little more. Is it more powerful? Yes. Is it a lot more powerful? No. Will users notice the difference from one to another? Most likely not.
According to the leaks it would be the same device that was launched in 2020 with a slightly more powerful “new” processor. This does not make any sense, since the Xiaomi Mi 11 is already on the market with a real difference in performance and many more news.
Xiaomi may use some strategy in the design or change some characteristics to make it more interesting, although we see that a Xiaomi Mi 10 with the Snapdragon 870 attract more attention than the new Xiaomi Mi 11.
The decision seems to be up to the Chinese inhabitants, as there is little chance that the West will end up seeing this Xiaomi Mi 10 for sale. Xiaomi may have a large remnant of this device in warehouses and wants to get rid of it as soon as possible. If this is not the reason, we do not find much sense in this strategy.
