The Snapdragon 835 CPU is said to come with the newest 10nm technology. The same technology is going to appear on the MediaTek X30 as well. Thus all the upcoming chips designed for high-end smartphones will support this technology. As you see, 10nm is going to become popular, and this made the chip makers to revise their plans. This also affected the launch date of the Xiaomi Mi 6 and Samsung Galaxy S8. What’s interesting the release date of the Xiaomi Mi 6 was pushed back to April from February. It’s explained as the chips are out of stock due to high demand.
However, we think the Xiaomi Mi 6 can launch in March, because Xiaomi always is a step forward and its sells numbers differs from Samsung sells numbers. On the other hand, the Xiaomi Mi 6 should compete with the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6, and I guess the other manufacturers will try to bypass their competitors.
