How to overclock a Snapdragon CPU on Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones?

Today we are revealing another secret, that the MIUI skin hides from us. Some Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones can be overclocked using a special command that affects the performance of the GPU. By activating this mode, you will get an increase in clock frequency (FPS) in games and overall performance, which can be measured with the test provided by AnTuTu. However, it is known that overclocking causes overheating of the smartphone, which can lead to unpleasant consequences over time.

GPU Overclocking

Please note that this overclocking mode can only be activated on smartphones with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or newer chipsets running MIUI. Simply enter the combination *#*#8106#*## in the dialer and confirm your intention by tapping on the “Turn on” button. The following warning may appear during the activation process:

Users who have already tried this procedure on Redmi K20 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 9 smartphones have published the results of AnTuTu tests. They are impressive! And one more important thing: to disable the overclocking mode you just need to repeat the code typing process.
