Xiaomi is all set to launch its in-house Pinecone processor on February 28 details of which weresurfacedrecently over the internet. Now just ahead of the launch, the company has released its first ever teaser video for the Xiaomi Pinecone processor.
Sadly, the video does not reveal any details about the processor but hints that the processor will be on the mid-end extreme. As per earlier reports, the Pinecone Soc is said to be a mid-range chipset and should be placed somewhere above the Mediatek P10 and near to Snapdragon 625, in terms of performance.
The video also reveals two-time World Memory Championship Winner Wang Feng, who is asked to memorize two sets of 100 numbers shown on two large displays. This is quite obvious a difficult task for a regular human being. But since Feng is a two-time winner of the World Memory Championships, he completes the task easily by memorizing all the numbers. In the video, he is shown writing the entire list of data in correct order.
As per earlier reports, Xiaomi is working on two Pinecone SoC chips with model numbers V670 and V970. The V670 is said to use four Cortex A-53 and four A-53 octa-core architecture with a clock speed of 800MHz and Mali T860 MP4 GPU. Furthermore, the V670 chipset is also said to be using a 28nm manufacturing process.
On the other hand, the V970 will use four Cortex-A73 cores and four Cortex-A53 octa-core architecture with a clock speed of 900MHz and Mali G71 MP12 GPU. The processor will have a minimum clock frequency of up to 2.0GHz and a maximum clock speed of 2.7GHz. The V670 is manufactured using a 10nm process and is expected to come only in the fourth quarter of this year.
The Pinecone launch event will be held at 2 PM on February 28 at the Beijing National Convention Centre, China. The processor will be developed by Xiaomi-owned Pine Cone Electronics.
