Xiaomi Mi 5 is edging closer to its launch, after being in the rumor mill for almost half a year. Today one new piece of the puzzle is unveiled, as the device gets benchmarked in GeekBench 3.
The handset has achieved quite a good score here, with 2160 points in the single core test and 4713 in the multi core one. The device is said to have achieved those, sporting 3 GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 820 processor, while also running Android 6.0. For the sake of comparison, a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ scores 1438 points in the single core test of the same benchmark and 5117 in the multi core one.
While the multi core score doesn’t seem to get beaten, the single core one has certainly improved. We’re also expecting Xiaomi to unveil a version of the Mi 5 that has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, as an alternative to the 32 GB storage/ 3 GB RAM one. Last I heard this flagship was coming on February 20, so we’re a month and a bit away from unveiling.
