4x Kryo 280 and 4x Cortex A53
Ever since Fudzilla received confirmation that the Snapdragon 835 will be an eight-core 10nm processor, we wondered about the power-efficient cluster. Now we can confirm that one performance cluster is made from four Kryo 280 cores and the second is powered by Cortex A53 cores.
First benchmarks out
Xiaomi is working on a successor to its highly successful Xiaomi Mi Mix and it looks like that the new phone will have the Snapdragon 835 under the bonnet.

Literally uses a curtain
