Xiaomi "Gemini" passes through Geekbench, reveals Snapdragon 820 core
posted by Chris P. / Nov 12, 2015, 3:59 AM
A Xiaomi device code-named "gemini" was caught sneaking through Geekbench's benchmarking suite, revealing hardware that would only sit right on a flagship or at least a very high-end device. Unsurprisingly for some, we're referring to the MSM8996, which we nowadays recognize as the 64-bit, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 — the silicon slinger's new flagship chip. The GPU wasn't revealed by the pass, but we know that Qualcomm is using the Adreno 530 GPU, which the company says will deliver "photorealistic" graphics and up to 40% gains in performance over the Adreno 430 in the ailed Snapdragon 810. The only other two noteworthy details captured by Geekbench are the amount of memory (3GB) and the operating system (Android 6.0 Marshmallow), both of which tie in nicely with the idea that this could be the Mi 5.
As for the scores achieved, the Xiaomi Gemini proved a capable performer, though it doesn't blow competitors out of the water. Of course, this probably being an early prototype, a lot can change before it's game time. Here's the proof and the actual results:
i hate that their not nice "MI" logo.. Nobody knows it is Xiaomi.. why they just dont write "Xiaomi" on their products..

Who cares who knows what it is? If you buy your phones so people know which one you have, then you might as well buy an iPhone and get one of those fugly cases with the window that shows the Apple through it.

1.59 GHz only ??? we will expect more with 2.2 Ghz >>

I guess that's the clock of the 2 lower powered CPUs. Remember that geekbench always prints the lower clock speed. Even the 7420 posts 1.5 Ghz while the big cores are 2.1 Ghz.

s820 have 2,2 quad core cpu ,This is false news ,The Chinese are trying to get the attention and publicity for their phones, at a Chinese almost all false. advertised phone with 13 megapixel camera, but the reality has 5mpx. the battery of 2000mAh put stickers of 5000 mAh. I speak from experience, I had a variety of junk phone from China

Weak? A quad core that can get 4762 in muticore test is actually impressive, not to mention that both hardware and software of this device are not final.

There is. 2nd score listed with With over a 5000 score and ther are o lay 2 listing, I be thinking this will go up, so with only 4 cores it's not bad at all and better than iPhone, CPU the a9, please also note that rhe all new Apple iPhone 6s speeds comes from the new none Emmc HD being used, close to ufs type speed I.e. What the reviews go on about And not the CPU, I am hopping Samsun uses new faster ufs HD in there new phones If phones come with an sd820 and a sd card and Emmc then the speed of the phone will be only as good as the sd810 ones, I.e. No need to upgrade

Damn, that's a fast chip. Also see this: https://browser.primatelabs.co
So there's a possibility of further improvement.

Are you kidding? That's weak, it just about matches last years exynos.

For that single core score, a quad core CPU should have 6400 multi-core score if it isn't big.LITTLE.
