Apple detailed its new A14 SoC yesterday that’s built on the 5nm process. The new iPad Air is the first device to have the A14 at the helm, and the iPhone 12 lineup will follow next month.

Apple’s competition currently uses chipsets based on the 7nm process, but Realme and Xiaomi’s execs took to Weibo to tease new products powered by the 5nm flagship chipset.

Realme VP Xu Qi Chase posted an image on the Chinese social network to tease a new smartphone series that will have a 5nm processor under the hood.

Xiaomi’s Lu Weibing, on the other hand, replied to a post saying the new iPad Air is currently the only product with a 5nm chipset and asked if customers are looking forward to new products powered by processors built on the 5nm process. This is a clear indication that the Chinese phone maker is already working on a product having a 5nm chipset at the helm.

Neither Realme nor Xiaomi revealed any details about their products and when they will arrive in the market, but these might be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 875 SoC that’s already entered production.
