The Chinese company's first SoC is expected to launch next to the Xiaomi Max and Mi Band 2, during the event scheduled to take place on May 10th.

The first in-house mobile processor by Xiaomi has spent some time in the rumor mill already, but now the story is closer to becoming reality. Although the chip has not been confirmed yet, it seems that it is very likely to see it showing up next month alongside the Xiaomi Max phablet and the Mi Band 2 fitness tracker.

An official from a Xiaomi partner who spoke with The Korea Times said the leader of the Chinese smartphone market "plans to release its in-house Rifle-dubbed mobile APUs at a company event, which has been set to take place May." He also added that Xiaomi will make the new chip using a standard core license technology from ARM.

Unfortunately, there are no technical details available yet. However, the same inside source mentioned above also revealed that an official statement should come out soon. While he did not mention a timeframe, that should happen this month or in early May, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
