Xiaomi Mi 5 benchmark reveals a surprise: a 5.7
It's been over a year and a half since Xiaomi last refreshed its flagship Mi line with the Mi 4. Naturally, fans of the brand have been yearning for an announcement date and any rumors and leaks whatsoever. Lucky for them, the date is confirmed for February 24 and the rumor mill has provided—big time!

Today, for example, we've got ourselves our first GFXBench sighting of the Mi 4's expected successor, the Mi 5. Luckily for all of us, GFXBench doesn't just test stuff, but also queries device info, meaning we typically get an advance on the specs. In the case of the Mi 5, a 5.2-inch display has been rumored, while 1080p resolution has been officially confirmed. Interestingly, however, GFXBench actually recorded a 5.7-inch, 1080p display—much larger than anyone would expect, specifically since there's the Mi Note line already.

We reached out to GFXBench to get some clarity on how display size is obtained, and we were told that the benchmark simply queries the device using Android APIs. Given how the rear and front cameras show up as "not supported", we were advised that these might have been intentionally blocked from view. Obviously, there's also the possibility of foul play.

Other highlights captured by the app include Android 6.0 Marshmallow software (with MIUI on top, undoubtedly), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset with Adreno 530 graphics, 3GB of RAM, and 64 gigs of storage. Proof:

Yeah, my 1080p Pro 5 with Exynos 7420 is already very fast already and the SN820 is even faster!

Yeah it edges out the 6s plus by 1-2 fps in gfx benchmarks, except driver overhead 2 where it score 13fps to the 6s plus 51fps. The SD820 is impsevie on 1080p as to be expected.

Isn't the mi series supposed to be non-phablet, and the mi note phablet.

I guess the mi 5 will have two versions one with 5.2 and the other with 5.7, so now does it mean the note series has been phased out? Or set to launch at a later date like the was Samsung does?

i might be the only one, but im a lot more interested in what Oppo has to offer with the Find 9. for some reason the Mi5 doesnt seem to be doing it for me at the moment. that could change when it gets announced tho, especially knowing xiaomi and their price tags

saw an article on androidheadlines regarding the Find 9 (posted 26 Jan 2016), with renders and apparently getting certified in Indonesia. a bit disappointed with the design (very iPhone-ish) but then again the renders could be fake

10GB of installed OS and apps? Bloat? Considering many phones only have 8GB, and the nearest likely memory for this phone is 64GB but there is only 54GB free.
