Xiaomi and Qualcomm have long enjoyed an unprecedented partnership for several years now. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Chinese smartphone maker already has Mi smartphone running on Qualcomm’s recently announced Snapdragon 730 chipsets in the pipeline.
News of the phone was first announced by Manu Kumar Jain, Global vice president of Xiaomi and managing director for Xiaomi India, via his official Twitter account. The tweet itself is sort of cryptic; Jain’s announcement doesn’t directly or specifically out which Snapdragon 730 chipset the brand will be using, but it’s obvious that whatever phone Xiaomi is working on. Will have either a Snapdragon 730 or Snapdragon 730G.

You’ll also notice that Jain did not mention if the new phone will have a new lineup, or if it will be part of one of its currently existing Mi series of smartphones. No further details about the rest of the new phone’s hardware were divulged by Jain, save for the fact that the phone will be hitting the Indian market first, before eventually making its way to our shores.
We’ll be following this story closely, so stay tuned.
