Xiaomi tapped Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X50 5G modem to bring the lightning-fast possibilities of 5G to its 2019 line of phones. This 5G modem can connect to sub-6GHz signal that has gigabit-class download speeds tens of times faster than existing 4G networks. Powering this beast of a phone is Snapdragon’s latest 855 mobile processor built on the latest 7nm chipsets.

The Qualcomm Kryo 485 CPU incorporates eight cores of processing. Single-core performance is claimed to be up to 45 per cent faster and the Qualcomm Adreno 640 GPU apparently sees increased performance by 20 per cent. Topping it off is the fourth-generation Qualcomm AI Engine, providing up to three times  faster AI performance.
