1. Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 deep dive: Everything you need to know (androidauthority.com)
While we’ll have to wait until 2021 for the first Snapdragon 888 powered smartphones, we can already pick out a few key things to expect from next-gen handsets.

For starters, the Snapdragon 888 looks very promising for power efficiency. More efficient CPU, GPU, and AI processors with an integrated 5G modem, built together on a 5nm manufacturing process is good news for battery life. At the same time, new imaging, machine learning, and security features flesh out the likely capabilities of next-gen phones. Think more gradual evolution than an overnight game-changer.

We’ll have to benchmark the chip to verify Qualcomm’s performance claims, but gamers have something to look forward to next year. On paper, at least. A 35% graphics uplift is a major claim with variable-rate shading, that could see further improvements for next-gen titles. CPU gains look to be slightly more muted, especially as clock speeds remain static. The big Cortex-X1 core should be a decent win for single-core scenarios.

Highlighted in Bold.

If it don't have Google Play, it's probably nothing for the European market.

International models of Xiaomi phones include Google Play.

Today I have the s9 plus since the first time they took it out and for me the best mobile I bought, it works perfect, the 2k screen a delight, the fantastic dual sound, and with the latest security patches of December 2020, If I buy a cell phone again, something I don't want yet, it would be a high-end Samsung again.
