After getting rumored to be released on July 16, the Xiaomi Mi 5 is now scheduled to be launched, later this year or sometime in 2016. A blog named, Xiaomi Today states that as per the analysts’ assumption, the smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset if it is getting unveiled by next year, also it may however, boast an Helio X20 chipset if it got launched this year.
It further revealed that previously the upcoming Xiaomi phone would be running a Snapdragon 810 processor. However, the manufacturer has reported some problems with excessive heat discharge. The problems are leading to the postponing the device launch to the next year, and Xiaomi is more likely to roll out its Mi 5 by this November.
Thus, the company has decided to integrate the device with an Helio chipset, which is behind the 73075 AnTuTu score. A leaked benchmark test has also conducted by the Xiaomi Today on the Mi 5 with Helio X20 chipset shows that the handset got AnTuTu rating into the 70k range.
Earlier, several rumors surfaced on the Internet suggesting that the firm has been unveiling the flagship device in an event held on July 16, however, the firm has unveiled a 9.9 mm thick 4K TV and a smart water purifier at the event.
The Helio X20 is a 10-core (Deca-core) chipset that features two Cortex-A72, two Cortex-A57, and eight Cortex-A53 cores. It is claimed to be the world’s first mobile processor with Tri-Cluster™ CPU architecture and ten processing cores.
The new chipset from MediaTek delivers extreme computing performance with unmatched power efficiency to fulfill the growing global demand for flagship mobile devices. Helio X20 provides three processor clusters, each designed to more efficiently handle different types of workloads. Much like adding gears to vehicles, dividing the cores into three clusters provides a more efficient allocation of tasks for optimum performance and extended battery life.
It can delegate simple tasks to one cluster of cores, while directing more complex tasks like hardcore gaming, to the other clusters. It is designed to use limit amount of power as if the smartphone is being used in sending text messages or running the calculator then the chipset will activate only one cluster and the other clusters will be turned to standby, and therefore, it drives smoother performance and extended battery life.
