The Snapdragon 855 and Snapdragon 730 have received a lot of love from Xiaomi, but the company is not done with the two chipsets quite yet. According to DigitalChatStation, the two outdated SoCs will power upcoming mid-range smartphones from the company, possibly to reduce costs.

Another reference to Xiaomi releasing a Snapdragon 855-powered smartphone has appeared online. While DigitalChatStation does not refer to the device by name, XDA Developers asserts that the Snapdragon 855 will make its way into the POCO X3 Pro. According to DigitalChatStation, the Snapdragon 855 will not be the only outdated chipset that Xiaomi will use in an upcoming mid-range handset, though.

Apparently, the Chinese company will plunder Qualcomm for the Snapdragon 730, a chipset that arrived in 2019. It is unclear what device will have the Snapdragon 730, but it is a chipset that Xiaomi has already used in the POCO X2, Redmi K20 and Redmi K30, among others.

Ultimately, the Snapdragon 855 still offers better performance than newer midrange Qualcomm SoCs, including the Snapdragon 765G. That may not be the case when comparing the rumoured Snapdragon 775G against the Snapdragon 855, but Xiaomi may have that 5 nm chipset earmarked for the Mi 11 Lite. As for the Snapdragon 730, this may well be cheap to source these days.
