Xiaomi to release two chipsets for in-house use next year
The second chipset that Xiaomi will turn-out in 2016 is aimed at the company's mid-range models. This SoC will offer an octa-core CPU. According to the source of this rumor, Xiaomi's high-end phones will still use Snapdragon chipsets from Qualcomm. So far, there has been no word on the actual specs of the chipsets.
We expect that Xiaomi will use the chips in-house only, and won't sell them to other smartphone manufacturers.
