Xiaomi wants to use 10-core MediaTek chipset to power high end Mi phones
Just a couple of days ago, we got wind of an alleged Xiaomi partnership with one of China’s leading chip-slinging companies, Leadcore. The news was that the two Chinese firms will work on custom processors to be used in upcoming Xiaomi handsets — possibly low to mid range ones at that.
The newest gist in town is that Taiwan’s MediaTek, despite being more of an industry underdog in recent years, unleashed a first-of-it’s-kind SoC with a 10-core CPU. Yes, the science behind the MediaTek Helio X20 sounds almost unbelievable and this could have been one of the reasons why Xiaomi wants to use the chipset in their next line of flagships.
We don’t know to what extent the agreement has gone for now but we believe the situation is a win-win for both parties since MediaTek processors aren’t much costly in comparison to Qualcomm’s (who currently powers top range Xiaomi phones), and being a company who wants it affordable, Xiaomi can always get it’s flagship products even cheaper with this kind of arrangement.
