"Xiaomi has been working closely with Qualcomm for almost 12 years. This time, with the announcement of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, Xiaomi aims to bring everyone an even better user experience on our next flagship smartphone."

Although there are no certainties regarding the product that may be launched, there is talk of a Xiaomi 12 Ultra. In fact, the first rumors that brought these two brands together were related to this supposed model. However, the Chinese manufacturer may also surprise the market with the introduction of the Xiaomi 13 series, although the possibilities that this will happen are remote.
