Xiaomi said to partner Leadcore to manufacture custom CPUs
The question of who will rule the semiconductor world in the next, say, five or six years, has been on everyone’s lips for some time now. While US chip maker Qualcomm seems to be slacking a little bit behind after losing out their biggest customers, Samsung, to Samsung’s own in-house Exynos, Taiwanese MediaTek is fast picking pace by introducing some high end processors to possibly fill in anywhere competitors are loosing out in the high range market.
OK, let’s not bore you with the numbers. It’s clear that everybody is now looking inwards for CPU solution. Leading Chinese phone maker, Xiaomi, has joined the crowd of self-making CPU companies, reports from China say.
According to our source, Xiaomi has partnered with Chinese silicon-producing firm Leadcore to produce custom processors to be used in upcoming Xiaomi phones. It’s a matter of time before Qualcomm and MediaTek are wiped off from the phone maker’s memory, the report claimed.
Yesterday, Xiaomi launched it’s first set of products in the United States. On the absence of Mi smartphones in the highly competitive US market, the company says it’s still afraid of patent wars which the US market is notorious for.
