For the past few days, we have been coming across reports about an Android One smartphone that is in the making by Xiaomi. The device is alleged to be the Xiaomi Mi A1.
Though it will be an affordable Android One smartphone, this one is likely to feature a dual camera setup at its rear as it is expected to be designed based on the Xiaomi Mi 5X. Also, there are reports that Xiaomi will unveil a dual camera smartphone in India on September 5, which will not be the Mi 5X as expected previously. It is believed to be a new lineup of smartphones, so there are increased possibilities for it to be the Mi A1 though it is not confirmed.
Amidst the confusion, the Xiaomi Mi A1 has been spotted on the Geekbench database revealing some of the key specifications and the performance scores as well. Going by the benchmark listing, the Android One smartphone to be launched by Xiaomi is likely to feature 4GB RAM and run on Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS out of the box. The hardware is said to comprise of an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC.
The Geekbench benchmark listing shows that the alleged Xiaomi Mi A1 manages to score 852 points in the single-core test and 3837 points in the multi-core test respectively. Notably, the Mi 5X has a higher multi-core score in comparison to the Mi A1 though both the smartphones have the same processor. Further, there are reports that the Mi A1 might arrive with a full-screen display.
Given that the new smartphone series from Xiaomi is all set to be launched in a few more days from now, we can expect more details about the same to pop up online in the near future.
