We are in the final lap for the release of the Xiaomi Mi 6. We have had teasers of their capabilities and features and a steady drip feed of leaks continues to come till the final release. Today the device was featured on Geekbench which showcased its alleged single-core and multi-core performance results.
As we are all aware that the Xiaomi Mi 6 is packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC with an Adreno 540 GPU coupled with 4 GB of RAM. It is also running on the latest flavour of Android, v.7.1.1, Nougat under the MIUI skin. The device spotted on Geekbench differs that it shows the Xiaomi Mi 6 packs in 6 GB of RAM, perhaps it is the Mi 6 Plus variant from the information we have at hand.
The Xiaomi Mi 6 manages to pull of a score of 2006 in single-core benchmarks and 6438 in multi-core benchmarks on v.4.0.4 of Geekbench for Android, this is with the Snapdragon 835 SoC clocked to 1.9GHz. If so this places the Mi 6 ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S8 which managed a score of 1916 and 6011 points in single-core and multi-core benchmarks respectively. The Xiaomi device also pulls ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S8+ that scored 1929 and 6084 points in the Geekbench single-core and multi-core benchmarks respectively. If this is indeed the case, it puts the Xiaomi Mi 6 ahead of the pack. This disparity in scores could be attributed to the fact that the Mi 6 and Mi 6 Plus do not feature Quad HD (1440 x2560) panel instead going for just a HD (1080 x1920) panel.
Xiaomi has set the launch date of the Mi 6 and Mi 6 Plus on the 19th and the hardware specifications and pricing of the devices have already been leaked. The Xiaomi Mi 6 would be the first smartphones to launch with the Snapdragon 835 SoC after Samsung’s Galaxy S8 flagship line. We should know more about the devices as we get closer to the final release date.
