Xiaomi Mi 5s spotted on AnTuTu with a score of 164,002

The Xiaomi Mi 5s one of many beastly smartphones likely to drop this side of the new year. Today just saw the launch of the cheap-yet-mighty LeEco Le Pro 3, and Huawei is expected to roll out the all-singing Mate 9 during the month of November. The Xiaomi Mi 5s has been spotted in the wild a few times now, and like the new LeEco phab, is expected to pack Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821 chipset along with Adreno 530 graphics and 6 GB of RAM. Devices with such powerful innards usually leave a trail of smoke as they blitz through benchmarking apps, and the Mi 5s appears to have racked up an impressive 164,002 score on AnTuTu. 

Benchmarks, particularly unverified, pre-release benchmarks, can only be taken as a guideline as to a handset's real-world performance. We've seen many a powerful smartphone stutter and lag due to poor software and optimization in the past, so we can't get too carried away with the Mi 5s just yet. Still, in a year that has seen the Snapdragon 820 and 4 GB RAM established as the de facto flagship standard, it looks like the high-end specs race is being taken up a notch or two. 

Along with Qualcomm's latest high-end silicon, previous specs leaks have indicated a 3490 mAh battery with Qualcomm fast charge 3.0, USB-Type C and a 16-megapixel main camera with PDAF and f/1.8 aperture. There's also been suggestions of 3D touch support with the display, though this particular feature could be reserved for the Mi Note 2

In essence, the Mi 5s seems a like-for-like alternative to the new LeEco Le Pro 3, though it'll be interesting to see whether Xiaomi plans to match the sub-$300 price point of its rival. 

The Mi 5s will likely grace us with its presence in a week's time, with September 27th having been touted on numerous occasions as a launch date. We'll surely see a leak or ten before then, however, so stay tuned.

Next year the Exynos and possibly Snapdragon CPU and GPU should hit over 200k. The A11 will hit well over 230k next year.

Chinese brands are packing the heat and delivering the meat! Can't wait for these to come with proper bands and affordable price.
