A few days after the presentation of the Xiaomi Mi 7 , and with a lot of unknowns under his arm, the famous Geekbench performance test filters us the existence of Xiaomi’s new mobile that would come to expand the already abundant (perhaps more) catalog of this Chinese manufacturer. This device has the code name of “Xiaomi Strakz” and everything points to this being a mid-range device.
Geelbench has not provided us with any information regarding the screen of this smartphone, so today, it is difficult to fit it into any of the ranges of the manufacturer, since its specifications are likely to fit into several types of phones.
According to Geekbench, the Xiaomi Strakz, in addition to having a name difficult to pronounce, would use a SoC Snapdragon 625, a very common “processor” composed of 8 ARM Cortex A53 cores with a maximum frequency of 2.0 GHz, an Adreno 506 GPU and a manufacturing process in 14nm.
Xiaomi has used this SoC in a multitude of devices, among which are in famous Xiaomi Mi A1 , he Redmi 5 , he Redmi Note 4 or the My 5X among others. Yes we can deduce from this fact that we are not facing a high-end smartphone, and taking into account that the recent Xiaomi Redmi S2 also integrates this processor and it is a mid-range / low smartphone, all points to the Xiaomi Strakz would fall within that range.
Other information that we know about Xiaomi’s new mobile is the RAM , that with a total of 4GB Discard that we are facing a very basic smartphone, and if before one focused on a certain intensive use.
It is worth mentioning that the score obtained in multicore It is quite low for what the chip usually offers.
Without going any further, the Xiaomi Mi MAX 2 gets 870/4209 points in that test, so although the new Xiaomi mobile gets a good score in “single core” of 902 points, it does not seem to be using all its cores in the “multicore” test, since the 1536 points obtained seem to indicate that the Strakz is at a very early stage of development with its ROM not yet debugged.
For now it’s early to know which Xiaomi smartphone we’re talking about, for specifications it could be the future Redmi 6 , although it is also surprising that SoC is repeated and not betting on some evolution of the same as the Snapdragon 636 without going any further. To repeat the processor in the Redmi, Xiaomi should bet on another differential element, which we assume will fall on the photographic section as in the Redmi S2, or on the screen.
Anyway, and in the case of Xiaomi, we are sure that this mysterious Xiaomi Strakz will reveal his real name sooner rather than later, and we will be there to tell you.
