Xiaomi’s upcoming MI3S has its specs leaked via benchmark
Xiaomi’s next flagship smartphone will be called MI3S, and back in February we heard it would be announced in April. That month has come and gone and the handset still isn’t official, but it might become so very soon.
That’s because someone owning a prototype of the MI3S seems to have put it through the paces of the AnTuTu benchmark. Thankfully, that means we get a look at the most important specs of the upcoming device.
The Xiaomi MI3S will therefore come with a 5-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen, a 13 MP rear camera, an 8 MP front camera, a 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, and Android 4.4 KitKat running the show.
Other specs are still a mystery though it’s easy to assume we’ll also see support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 150 Mbps 4G LTE (based on the chipset used), and probably a LED flash for the main camera.
The hardware innards that have been leaked today are certainly worthy of a flagship smartphone for this day and age, and they’ll keep people happy until the MI4 lands in the second half of this year. That particular handset has been rumored to come with a 2,560×1,440 touchscreen and a next-gen Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor.
According to the guys behind the AnTuTu benchmark, the MI3S might get announced on May 15 and we could see it become available for order within the next month.
