Just recently, Xiaomi introduced its latest flagship, the 14 series, with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. Interestingly, the new devices come with the Tango translator. The function of this translator is to help with the smooth running of 32-bit apps. On the other hand, the latest Qualcomm flagship processor doesn’t support 32-bit apps.
In order to facilitate its users, the company has used Tango as a solution that will enable the 32-bit apps to behave like 64-bit apps. In this way, users won’t be forced to use 64-bit apps and give up their favorite 32-bit apps. Such a smart solution. Furthermore, Tango resolves the limitations of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chips, which are unable to run 32-bit apps.
Xiaomi 14 series users will be able to access 32-bit apps with the help of Tango
Across the globe, the tech giant Google is urging developers to develop 64-bit apps. For this reason, the new flagship processor doesn’t support running 32-bit apps. But with Tango, users can run 32-bit apps on Xiaomi 14 series. It is basically a 32-bit to 64-bit Arm binary translator.
Mishaal Rahman shared on his X account that an app was running a 32-bit app. The software in question, Flappy Bird, is compatible with the Xiaomi 14 series, even though it is designed for a 32-bit architecture. Tango’s translation to 64-bit allows it to exist in these devices that run on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC.
Well, this useful feature will be appreciated by a lot of Xiaomi users. we might observe a similar approach adopted by other smartphone manufacturers in the future. Although the new flagship processor has limitations in terms of 32-bit app support, it is still a performance beast in contrast to its ancestor. Furthermore, the majority of apps will be 64-bit with its successor, a translator like Tango might not be necessary.
