Right now, it is well known that Xiaomi is yet to announce some new smartphones this year. While we have already seen that the Redmi Note 4 might arrive with a dual-camera setup on its back, two Xiaomi phones with codenames Altun and Capricorn have surfaced online and these have been spotted on benchmark stats.
Xiaomi Altun chipset remains unknown
The Xiaomi Altun has been popping up on the Geekbench listings for a longer period of time. This device is listed to be powered by an octa-core ARMv8 processor clocked at 1.4 GHz. It is also claimed to run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the latest iteration of MIUI ROM.
This device from Xiaomi has been spotted on the Geekbench database for almost 25 times since early May. Previously, the chipset details were left blank and only lately we have got to know some info on the same.
Xiaomi Capricorn to have a Qualcomm SoC
Earlier this month, Xiaomi Capricorn has been benchmarked. This device is listed to be based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and run on the most recent version of MIUI ROM. Going by the benchmark listing, the device codenamed Xiaomi Capricorn is listed to be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 820 SoC clocked at 2 GHz paired with 3 GB of RAM.
Other details are scarce
The benchmark listings do not reveal the other aspects of these unannounced Xiaomi devices as usual. So, we are yet to infer what could be the battery, display, camera, and other hardware specs the Xiaomi Altun and Xiaomi Capricorn.
Three Variants of Mi Note 2 Expected
There is a rumor that there will be three variants of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 launching sometime in the next month. Of course, it is difficult to claim that the Altun and Capricorn are variants of the upcoming phablet.
The Mi Note 2 is likely to arrive with a 5.7-inch pressure sensitive display, 6 GB RAM, and 64 GB or 128 GB of internal storage support and sport a 16 MP dual-camera setup at its back. The device is expected to house a 4,000 mAh battery under its hood.
