Xiaomi MI4 specs caught by benchmark?
Xiaomi is the real darling of the Chinese smartphone space, and it’s clearly already working on its next flagship smartphone, the successor to the MI3 that was announced back in September of last year.
This may in fact turn out to be called Xiaomi MI4, unsurprisingly, and a device with that name was recently spotted in the AnTuTu benchmark’s result database. However, the listing has since disappeared, which is rather odd. So was this a fake? It’s impossible to know. Luckily though, G4Games grabbed a shot of the results before they vanished into thin air.
The picture these paint is obviously of a very high-end device, as you’d expect from a MI4. It might therefore come with a 1080p Full HD touchscreen (size unknown at the moment), a 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor in its MSM8974AC iteration (the most powerful to date), 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, a 13 MP rear camera, an 8 MP front camera, and it was running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean when it got itself benchmarked.
That could change by the time it gets official, of course, and it may very well ship with an Android 4.4 KitKat-based version of the MIUI ROM. The particular model that got benchmarked was made for China Unicom’s 3G network, though we’re expecting there to be a 4G variation too, especially now that China Mobile finally got around to launching its own such high-speed network.
