The publication has affirmed that the future Xiaomi Mi 9, that would be arriving at the market in the first half of the next year, could be the first smartphone counting with the powerful Snapdragon 8150 (which was previously known as Snapdragon 855). Like the previous Mi 8, it is expected that this future device will be launched first in China, and then be launched worldwide.

Strategies that this company has

Respect to the previous releases of this company, last year the Mi MIX 2 smartphone was launched, which had the Snapdragon 835. In March of this year, the Chinese manufacturer launched the Mi MIX 2S phone, which was similar to the Mi MIX 2 in terms of design and specifications, but came with the new Snapdragon 845. As you can see, Xiaomi has a great strategy when it comes to processors, and it is most likely to be used with the future Xiaomi Mi 9.

During the launch event of the Mi MIX 3, the company confirmed that the 5G version of the phone will be announced in the first quarter of next year and, therefore, it is likely that this new version retains the same design as the original Mi MIX 3. Having said that, it is quite possible that this device, along with the Xiaomi Mi 9, also comes with Snapdragon 8150.

More phones will feature the Snapdragon 8150

On the other hand, the famous Xiaomi Mi 8 became known as the smartphone for the eighth anniversary of the company in May this year, so we could see the Xiaomi Mi 9 being launched in the month of May of next year… In short, it can be released one or two months after the Mi MIX 3 5G.

While the Mi 9 could become the first smartphone to have Snapdragon 8150, there is a possibility that the Galaxy S10, the ZenFone 5Z or the Sony Xperia XZ4, which would be launched at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February next year, also become the first devices to have this processor.
