Nokia To Use Xiaomi’s Surge S1 Processor In Its Phones
The next Nokia mobiles are the most expected smartphones of the market. As the return of the Finnish Company Nokia to the market of smartphones, and more importantly, to Android, makes it a brand to take into account. However, now it seems that the Finnish company Nokia will collaborate with Xiaomi simply for using its processor Surge S1 in its devices and this was launched for the average range smartphones.
To emphasize in the mid-range simply we not only need a good value for money, but we need to have the most powerful sections of the sector. This happened like when we started to seeing fingerprint sensor in all the mobile phones of reduced price ranges, and surely in a few years, we will also see the functions of high-end mobile devices such as Samsung’s iris scanner or LG’s wide-angle in mid range devices. But there are still brands that focus on just making their devices as powerful and fluid as possible.
The Finnish company Nokia this year has demonstrated with the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6, at least in the mid-range, they simply want to offer excellent performance, betting on powerful hardware and a layer of very fluid personalization to provide category performance. The collaboration that will make Nokia is with a fairly similar company, as it has the same strategy: Xiaomi is one of the companies that always seeks to provide best user experience to its users by its layer of customization and hardware, while in other sections like multimedia does not stand out so much.
The next Nokia mobiles would use a processor manufactured by Xiaomi, the Surge S1
A few months ago we told you all about the new Xiaomi processor, the Surge S1, which was manufactured in 28-nanometer technology that was meant for the mid-range devices. With this, Xiaomi was entering a market in which there are few manufacturers such as Huawei, Samsung or Apple, which manufacture a processor for their own mobile and can optimize it further in their own way. The first mobile to be launched with this processor was the Xiaomi Mi5c, and the next mobile to be launched with this processor, may not be a Xiaomi device.
As Xiaomi and Nokia would have talked to use the processor of the Chinese company in Nokia mobile phones, something that could serve to Xiaomi to continue developing its processor and while going try it and Selling it, while Nokia could make its mobile phones have a lower cost of manufacturing, but does Nokia really win in this switch from Qualcomm to Xiaomi?
The Surge S1 against the competition of Qualcomm and MediaTek
The Surge S1 that Nokia would use – or perhaps new versions of it – competes directly with the Helio P20 and Snapdragon 625, in which it ends up winning the processor of Xiaomi in the cost of manufacture but is not so powerful as the one of Qualcomm. The next processor of Xiaomi will be manufactured in a technology of 16 nanometers, a processor that could surpass in everything to Snapdragon and the MediaTek.
