Xiaomi Working on Snapdragon 660-powered Smartphone: Report

On: February 13, 2017

While China’s Apple Xiaomi has geared up to launch a new Redmi phone dubbed the Redmi Note 4X, we have come across a new report suggesting that Xiaomi is planning to unveil yet another mid-range phone — powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chip — sometime this year. Since the production of the chip in question commences by Q2 2017, Xiaomi’s SD660-powered phone is expected sometime by then.

Furthermore, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chip is based on Samsung’s 14 nanometer LLP process technology — featuring two Cortex A73 and two Cortex A53 cores and ranging, between 1.9GHz and 2.2GHz clock speeds. We, however, have no concrete information about this move just yet. Hence, we need to wait for some time before we come across anything reportable about this mystery [Xiaomi] smartphone.
