A new upcoming Xiaomi smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi A1 has been spotted on the benchmarking website Geekbench.
According to the listing on the websites, we can expect the unreleased smartphone to pack an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 clocked at 2.0 GHz. The smartphone will run Android Nougat 7.1.2 based MIUI out of the box.
We don’t know much about the smartphone apart from the Geekbench listing and the name ‘A1’. Recent reports indicated that the smartphone is likely to be Xiaomi’s upcoming Android One-based device that is expected to launch soon. The ‘A1’ in the code name matches up with the guess as it could mean Android One (1).
One thing to note here is that if this indeed is Android One device then we may see the first smartphone from Xiaomi running the stock version of Android.
According to GizmoChina, Mi A1 could also be the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 5X as the benchmark results of 852 in the single-core benchmark and 3838 in multi-core benchmark is not that different from other alleged results from Xiaomi Mi 5X devices. This comes days after the company confirmed the launch date for its upcoming Xiaomi Mi Mix 2.
Xiaomi India tweeted on its official Twitter handle confirming that the company will launch a smartphone with a dual-camera setup. The interesting part about the Xiaomi Mi 5X is that the company has already announced the device in the Chinese market. The company announced the Mi 5X in July with a cheaper 32 GB internal storage variant launched in August.
Xiaomi is also expected to launch the much awaited Mi Mix 2 at a launch event on 11 September 2017. Mi Mix 2 is likely to improve on its nearly ‘bezel-less’ design that Xiaomi showed off with the Xiaomi Mi Mix last year.
