Xiaomi 13 specifications tipped, chipset may have surprising CPU changes

Qualcomm launched its latest flagship Snapdragon 8+Gen 1 SoC last month. The processor will be powering the flagships for 2022, so the company has already started working on what comes next. According to a leak from Digital Chat Station, Qualcomm is working on a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor.

Tipster Abhishek Yadav has suggested that two Snapdragon 8 Gen 2-powered could launch later this year, one of which could be the Xiaomi 13. Earlier reports reveal the latest flagship is supposed to launch later this year. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is expected to bring major improvements over the current top-in-the-line Qualcomm SoCs, but the configuration teased by the tipster reveals surprising CPU changes(via). Let’s take a look at what we can expect from the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.

Alleged Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 configuration

The alleged Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 codename SM8550-Kailua configuration revealed by Digital Chat Station suggests it will use Adreno 740 GPU and 4nm TSMC process, the same used on Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.

Further, the tipster suggests that it will feature: 1x Makalu-Elp, 2x Makalu, 2x Matterhorn and 3x Klein-R1, which means: one Cortex-X3, two Cortex-A720, two Cortex-A710, and three Cortex-A510. This came as a surprise, as Qualcomm has used a triple-tier CPU layout (1+3+4) since Snapdragon 855. Oddly, the company will use the old 1+2+2+3 layout on its latest flagship processor.

What’s even odder is that Digital Chat Station suggests the Cortex-X3 and Cortex-A720 are 32-bit cores and will maintain the 32-bit support, which is weird, as most Android platforms use 64-bit operations. Google has also asked developers to drop support for 32-bit apps. Well, nothing is confirmed about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2’s configuration, so we suggest you take this with a pinch of salt.
