Xiaomi is on cloud nine after registering record breaking sales on Single’s Day for third time in three years in a row. Now a new smartphone from Xiaomi under the codename Gemini, has been spotted on Geekbench. Taking a look at the specifications of the smartphone reveals a lot about the new device and hints at this being the newest flagship from the company most likely, Xiaomi Mi 5.
Xiaomi Gemini will be running on the latest version of Android 6.0 i.e. Marshmallow. The benchmarks make it clear that the device will be packing the recently unveiled, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 (MSM8996) processor under the hood coupled with 3 GB of RAM.
The single core score for Gemini is 2140 and the multi core score is 4762. As most apps are coded to use single core, so single core score is much more important. Xiaomi Mi 5 is going to be the next big thing from Xiaomi and will be directly competing with the likes of iPhone 6S and HTC A9.
Xiaomi has always code named their devices with names of constellations. For example, the Xiaomi Mi4 is Leo, Mi3 is Cancro/ Pisces. Even the new Xiaomi Mi 4C flagship is code named Xiaomi Libra. So, its quite likely that the Xiaomi Gemini smartphone that we spotted on Geekbench could be the new Xiaomi Mi 5 flagship.
It will be worth waiting to see what Xiaomi is going to bring on the table this time.[source]
