Xiaomi seems to unleash the Surge S2 processors at the MWC 2018

Xiaomi is all set to expand its Surge chipsets in the upcoming MWC event with the launch of ‘Surge S2’ processors, while the predecessor S1 was unveiled at the MWC 2017. My Drivers website reports that the processor will be manufactured by TSMC (Taiwanese Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) utilizing the 16nm process.

The Apple chipsets are also manufactured by TSMC. It is now speculated that this chipset would back the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 6X, which is also expected to launch at the upcoming mobile trade show. The upcoming SoC features eight cores of which four are Cortex-A73 clocked at 2.2GHz, while the rest are Cortex A-53 clocked at 1.8GHz.

The processor will be equipped with G71 MP8 GPU and will be a tough competitor against the rival Huawei’s Kirin 960. Mi 6X will be sold only in China, while in other parts of the world the phone will be sold as the brand name ‘Mi A2’. The leaked image of Mi 6X suggests the phone would feature 18:9 aspect ratio display and a vertical camera setup like iPhone X.
