Xiaomi's upcoming Mi3S flagship goes through AnTuTu, reveals its high-end innards
Back in 2013, when Xiaomi first unleashed its Mi3 flagship, it boasted one of the most potent hardware configurations available on the market. Its upcoming sequel -- the Mi3S -- will also not disappoint, as it packs similar, high-end internals. That, at least, is what a recent pass through the AnTuTu benchmarking suite of a device codenamed Xiaomi LEO/W suggests.
According to AnTuTu's data, the suspected Mi3S model packs a 5-inch, 1080p display and Qualcomm's very best -- the 2.5GHz, quad-core Snapdragon 801 MSM8974-AC -- the same chip powering the Samsung Galaxy S5. Xiaomi's unreleased phone has an edge over the S5, though, as far as the 3GB of on-board RAM are concerned. A 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel selfie cam were also spotted by the app, and the flagship apparently ran on the latest Android platform -- KitKat 4.4.2.
Where the suspected Xiaomi Mi3S falls short is benchmark score -- it only achieved 31432 points, which is on the low side for this configuration. That said, we're very likely looking at an early model which is in for a bunch of optimizations before prime time.
