Xiaomi teases the return of its own custom chips for future devices Xiaomi Surge S1

There’s a major mobile event happening tomorrow, with Xiaomi expected to unveil the Mi 11 Ultra, the Mi 11 Pro, and quite possibly a new Mi Mix phone as well. Now Xiaomi has teased the arrival of something else too: a custom system-on-a-chip (SoC).

Based on posts from Xiaomi and company executives on Chinese social media site Weibo (as per Android Authority and others), a new “self-developed chip” is on the way that has something to do with “surging” – and Xiaomi’s first SoC was called the Surge S1.
