Chinese tech company, Xiaomi, has been hinted to be planning a possible announcement of its new chipset, the Surge S2.
The Surge S2 chipset will come as a successor to the Surge S1 which was announced back in February 2017 and made a debut on the Xiaomi Mi 5c smartphone.
The Chinese manufacturer had already revealed that the Surge S1 successor will be built on the TSMC 16 nm process and will also be the main chipset powering the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 6X.
The Xiaomi Mi 6X will by implication also debut in February if the company follows its usual template.
The Xiaomi Surge S2 chipset will come into the market as an octa-core CPU with four Cortex-A73 cores running at the speed of 2.2 GHz and four Cortex-A53 clocked at a speed of 1.8 GHz.
On the chipset, the GPU loaded on will be Mali-G71 MP8 which comes as a massive upgrade and improvement to the Mali-T860 paired up on the Surge S1.
Reports indicate that the Chinese tech company is looking to match the Kirin 960 processor from Huawei with the Surge S2.
The Xiaomi 6X which has been rumored to be coming with the latest unannounced chipset will come into the market with a tall 18:9-ratio screen and sport thinner bezels on the side along with a fingerprint scanner on the back and a vertical set-up dual camera.
