Qualcomm’s announcement of the Snapdragon 865 was followed by a stampede of companies, announcing they will use the platform in their upcoming flagships. While some companies just confirmed their commitments, others announced the specific phones that will use them.
Xiaomi Mi 10 will be one of the first phones with SD865, Bin Lin confirmed during the Qualcomm Summit in Hawaii. Meizu’s official Weibo account also went ahead and confirmed Meizu 17 with the same chipset is coming in Spring 2020.
Xiaomi Mi 10 official announcement
Xiaomi’s actions might trigger a deja-vu since Lin Bin has been a part of the Qualcomm summit for several years – both the Xiaomi Mi 8 and Xiaomi Mi 9 were also announced on stage in Hawaii to have the then-latest Snapdragon. Meizu’s statement is somewhat more surpring, given the company revealed the Snapdragon 855-powered Meizu 16T just a month ago.
The new chipset by Qualcomm will have a new Snapdragon X55 modem, but more specs should follow soon. The announcement also gave us the Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G – the new mid-range chipest with 5G support.
