SoFIA is still vaporware to me until actual branded products using it are announced.
Ugh. Everyone prepare to be confused all over again. And to rescore all the tablets when AnTuTu updates to account for these new CPUs.

The background to this attack: Apparently yesterday on Weibo, Xiaomi published a map that showed some incorrect Chinese territorial borders (the map might have or might not have also shown Tibet — which is highly forbidden).
