Xiaomi ‘Libra’ Benchmarked With Hexa-Core Snapdragon 808 SoC
A new Xiaomi handset has been spotted in benchmark results tipping that the Chinese company might be working on a mid-range smartphone. Recent rumours have pointed that Xiaomi has been working on its new flagship smartphone, the Mi 5, alongside a bigger variant dubbed Mi 5 Plus.
According to the Geekbench benchmark results, the alleged Xiaomi ‘Libra’ smartphone will run an MIUI version based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. The highlight of the smartphone is seen to be the hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 (MSM8992) processor clocked at 1.44GHz coupled with 2GB of RAM. Considering that the Xiaomi’s next flagship is rumoured to pack Snapdragon 810 processor and the purported bigger variant is expected to feature Snapdragon 820 processor, we can assume that the Xiaomi ‘Libra’ is a mid-range smartphone. To recall, the Snapdragon 808 processor was last seen on LG’s 2015 flagship, the G4.
Notably, a recent report claimed that the Xiaomi ‘Libra’ was the codename of the company’s Mi 4 successor.
Considering that none of the information has been made official by Xiaomi, we recommend our readers to take all these leaks with a pinch of salt.
The Android 5.1 Lollipop-based Xiaomi Mi 5 was previously claimed to launch in July; though recent leaks pointed to a November release. An earlier report leak even hinted that Xiaomi’s next Mi 5 flagship will come with a built-in fingerprint scanner.
A leak on Wednesday hinted that the Mi 5 would be priced at CNY 2,399(approximately Rs. 24,500). Some of the rumoured specifications of the Mi 5 include a 5.2-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) LCD display; Corning Gorilla Glass 4; a Snapdragon 810 processor; 16-megapixel rear camera; 13-megapixel sensor on the front, and 3000mAh battery.
The rumoured Xiaomi Mi 5 Plus, on the other hand, is said to feature a 5.7-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) display; Snapdragon 820 SoC; 3500mAh battery, a 23-megapixel rear camera with OIS and laser autofocus, and a 12-megapixel front camera.
