Qualcomm’s new ultra-powerful chip would have already caused a stir at Xiaomi. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 will equip the next Xiaomi 12 Ultra, but also potentially two other premium smartphones from the Chinese brand that should accompany it.
Just announced, already on a Xiaomi smartphone. It has become a habit for the Chinese manufacturer: as soon as a latest-generation processor from Qualcomm hits the market, it must already be in one of its high-end products. And this, sometimes at the cost of some integration flaws that cost the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra last year its autonomy in particular.
Bis repeats in sight with the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 that the American manufacturer has just presented. We already know that the next Xiaomi 12 Ultra, which is slow to arrive, will most likely be equipped with it. But many rumors suggest that it will not be the only Xiaomi device to have it.

Power for all budgets
According to different sources cited by the Indian site GizbotXiaomi would have at least two other smartphones in anticipation of incorporating Qualcomm’s latest SoC. They would all belong to the same premium family. In addition to the Xiaomi 12 Ultra, we would therefore find possible Xiaomi 12s and Xiaomi 12s Pro. And all three will be announced in the coming days to add to the existing Xiaomi 12R, Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro.
If the Xiaomi 12s seems to be the “high-end entry” version, to offer an affordable smartphone with power, the Xiaomi 12s Pro would be very close to the Xiaomi 12 Pro, which is based on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Therefore, A simple SoC upgrade would be in the offing and it was once whispered that the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 should bring its full power to it.
Unveiled shortly after the launch of its predecessor, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 promises significant performance improvement and reductions in heating issues in particular. Gains in power consumption and also in the speed of the CPUs and GPUs are announced.
