The first Snapdragon 898 smartphone will be Xiaomi Mi 12.

According to verified Chinese source Digital Chat Station, there are many smartphones in development based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 SoC, with the first phone with the new platform coming out in mid-December. The insider claims that the first smartphone on Snapdragon 898 will be released by Xiaomi: this phone will be the Xiaomi Mi 12.

Qualcomm's next flagship SoC, the Snapdragon SM8450, to be released under the name Snapdragon 898, will be manufactured using Samsung's 4nm process, which will result in a 20% increase in performance. Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 will have a tri-cluster architecture. The platform will include a Cortex-X2-based super-core, large Cortex-A710-based cores, and small Cortex-A510-based cores. All of these new developments will run on a 64-bit ARM v9 Pure system. The Cortex-X2 provides a design improvement of approximately 16% over the Cortex-X1. But after setting up Qualcomm, it was optimized to work even better. However, in order to find out the real performance of the platform, we should wait for the test results. An insider confirmed that the platform should get very hot.

In addition, the Xiaomi Mi 12 series is expected to feature an LTPO screen with an adaptive refresh rate from 1 to 120 Hz. This will ultimately help reduce the power consumption of the device. The same screens are expected in the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max.

The Xiaomi Mi 12 should support 120W fast wired charging and 100W wireless charging. However, with the introduction of new wireless charging regulations, wireless fast charging above 50W will be banned in China.

Digital Chat Station was the first to accurately report the specifications and release dates of the Redmi K30, K40, Xiaomi Mi 10, and Mi 11.
