At the beginning of 2017 came Mi5C – the first Xiaomi smartphone on the basis of the corporate processor Surge S1. After that there were rumors about the development of new chips, but before the announcement, it never came. According to the latest information, the Chinese company has refused to release its own processors, focusing on other areas of development.
Industry sources claim that Xiaomi has concentrated on products which do not require such a large investment. Instead of having to develop complex chips, the company moved to research low-power Bluetooth devices, RF modules and other peripheral components. This will help in the long run to find a balance between developing a competitive product and profit.
In confirmation of such plans provides information on recent shopping Xiaomi. So, we have acquired a share of Hypower Electronics, the manufacturer of the chips with fast charging. Earlier in the year 2020 Xiaomi invested considerable sums in a number of Chinese manufacturers of chipsets, as well as in Verisilicon involved in the creation of chips.
In Xiaomi did not comment on this information.
