While Samsung Exynos, Huawei Kirin and Apple A series mobile processors are performing at a very high level , it is an indisputable fact that Qualcomm and MediaTek processors dominate the smartphone market. In Xiaomi in recent years, we came across with a mobile processor called Surge S1 .
Xiaomi Mi 5c was the first and only phone to be used with this 28 nm fabrication process and home to eight Cortex A53 cores as well as a four-core Mali-T860 graphics unit.
In this context, Xiaomi, which first appeared with its own processor in 2017, announced that it was working on Surge S2 in 2018. Although rumors have been revealed that this processor will be used in Mi 6c, it has not turned out to be reality.
While silence has been going on for two years, Xiaomi has given up developing mobile processors, according to an industry expert. It was stated that the brand focuses on other projects that are as complex and inexpensive as a mobile processor.
To explain with examples: Bluetooth, RF chips and other peripheral components with low power consumption to increase earnings a little. Xiaomi's search for a balance between competitive product development and financial profit is an important factor in this decision. Sure, there is no official statement made by Xiaomi, but the name of the Surge series processors has not been mentioned for a long time.
