Xiaomi Chiron Benchmarked With Snapdragon 835 6GB RAM
A smartphone built by Xiaomi codenamed Chiron, once again saw online viewing earlier this week, appearing on the GFXBench mobile benchmarking tool. The device previously rumored to be Mi MIX 2 has different hardware specifications from the company’s recently announced phablet, indicating that the Chinese original equipment manufacturer has another high-end handset in the works.
While the Xiaomi Chiron is also equipped with high-quality specifications, it carries a 5.6-inch screen panel with a resolution of 1.920 to 1.080 pixels, which corresponds to a conventional 16: 9 widescreen. By contrast, the Mi MIX 2 has a FHD + 5.99 screen inch, which uses a higher 18: 9 aspect ratio.
According to the same list, the unscheduled Xiaomi phablet comes with a 12-megapixel camera on its backplate, while its top bezel holds a 5-megapixel sensor. The device’s primary imaging setting is supposed to be accompanied by a flash drive and has autofocus, HDR and Face Detection capabilities, in addition to the 4K content recording feature. The secondary sensor is QXGA (2.048 x 1.536) in terms of video capabilities and does not seem to be combined with a flash.
Xiaomi Chiron tested with Android 7.1.1 Nougat with Xiaomi’s proprietary MIUI skin, possibly MIUI 9. NFC seems to be part of the pack here, but the heart rate monitor is not included on the smartphone, according to GFXBench.
With Xiaomi already making its debut on a high-end device intended to be sold this autumn in the form of Mi MIX 2, it is now unclear when the newly observed handset can hit the market and what is its official feature. Based on the specifications revealed by GFXBench, the Xiaomi Chiron sounds like the Mi 6 Plus, which has been rumored for a long time but never released, while the tech giant chooses to launch an optically identical Mi Note 3 that carries SoC midrange.
