Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 is the new SoC from Qualcomm born out as an overclocked Snapdragon 865+. It had been announced back in January and we’ll likely see the SoC powering the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 10S which, interestingly, even could be launched this month.

In fact, the existence of the Xiaomi Mi 10S has been rumored way back in January of this year. However, it’s now almost confirmed because the device has appeared in multiple listings on various e-commerce platforms including but not limited to JD.com.

The Xiaomi Mi 10S may be seen as a spin-off to the last year’s Mi 10 flagship with upgraded specs. It’s pertinent to mention here that the Mi 10 was equipped with Snapdragon 865 SoC which had been the newest offering then. So technically, the Mi 10S should perform better with its brand-new Snapdragon 870 SoC at its heart.

In case if you are unaware, the Snapdragon 870 is an overclocked variant of the Snapdragon 865+. But it's slightly underpowered as compared to the mighty Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. Additionally, the Snapdragon 870 still utilizes Kryo 585 cores, which are based on ARM’s Cortex-A77 core with some in-house tweaks.

Well, the remainder of the Mi 10S specs are still foggy. But one thing we can assure is the change in design language compared to the last year's Mi 10. The image found within the TENAA database hints at Mi 10S looks just like the Mi 10 Ultra rather than the Mi 10.

That being said, like most of the Mi flagship devices out there, we can expect better cameras, fluid UI, huge battery, and all in the Mi 10S too. However, recently Xiaomi M2012J2SC (Mi 10s) spotted on GeekBench with 8GB of RAM and it runs on Android 11 OS. The GeekBench listing also indicates that the smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 870 SoC. Mi 10S gets 1021 points in single-core and 3443 points in multi-core performance. Moreover, according to some reports, Xiaomi Mi 10s is going to be launched later this month. So we expect some more leaks before its official launch, stay tuned.
