Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 rumors: GFXBench listing reveals Snapdragon 835, 6GB RAM

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 rumors: GFXBench listing reveals Snapdragon 835, 6GB RAM

The Mi Mix 2 is touted to get a much larger display than the 6in handset shown in the leaked renders. Its arrival seems to be approaching fast as the alleged Mi MIX 2 has appeared on Geekbench benchmarking platform.

The Mi Mix 2, as per the listing, will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 6 gigs of RAM and Android 7.1.1 Nougat-based MIUI under the hood.

Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has already confirmed that the company has started working on Mi MIX 2, and the smartphone could launch in the second half of the year. Additionally, it also confirms the device will run on Android 7.1.1. Xiaomi plans to release it later this year.




The calm before the storm of next-generation flagship smartphones from both Apple and most Android heavyweights is upon us, as we're left speculating and dreaming about the likes of the iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 or LG V30 for at least another month and a half or so. The Mi MIX 2 has scored 1929 in single core test and 6431 in the multicore test, suggesting that it will have high-end specifications. Back in April, a listing for the device was spotted on GearBest's website, revealing some key specs.

If you are curious on other specs that will feature on the deice, the Mi Mix 2 is rumored to see a 6.4-inch QHD IPS display with 2560x1440p resolution and is expected to come in three variants - 4GB, 6GB and 8GB RAM. There's another variant with 6GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage called the "Pro" variant. Similar to its predecessor, the Mi Mix 2 will boast acoustic earphone technology, which basically eliminates the need for an earpiece. The phone may rock a whopping 93 percent screen-to-body ratio, which is even greater than the 91.3 percent on the first gen Mi MIX. The battery will be a massive 4,500 mAh. Few reports also claim an integrated fingerprint module.
