Xiaomi is expected to release its new flagship, the Xiaomi Mi5 sometime later this year. According to the recent speculations, the device is expected to come with the new high-end chipset from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 820. It was even said that the launch was delayed because Xiaomi wanted to use the new Snapdragon chip. Now, we may have some idea about the performance of the device, thanks to a leaked AnTuTu benchmark screenshot.
The leaked image shows that the Xiaomi Mi5 scored a mind blowing 73075 points. That’s even better than the Samsung Exynos 7420 that currently powers flagships like Galaxy S6, S6 Edge and Galaxy Note 5. Given that Snapdragon 820 is expected to power the Mi5, the performance that we saw on AnTuTu could very well be of the next Qualcomm chip. We expected Snapdragon 820 to perform well as recent rumors have said that the chip will most likely feature four custom Kyro cores clocked at 3.0GHz.
Another likely chip inside the Mi5 is the Helio X20 with 10 cores. The chip managed to score above 70K on AnTuTu back in April, so this Mi5 in the leaked screenshot could be powered by the MTK Helio X20 as well. But, that’s just a guess, because almost every recent leak has tipped Snapdragon 820 inside the Xiaomi Mi5.
As for the specs, the flagship is expected to come with a 5.2-inch 2K display, 4GB of RAM and a 16MP OIS camera. The launch could be around November this year. Pricing is expected to be under $400.
So, which chip would you like to see inside the Xiaomi Mi5? Snapdragon 820 or Helio x20? [source]
