Xiaomi device codenamed "Ferrari" pops up on GFXBench, boasts mid-range specs
Recently, Xiaomi popped up in our news section with the ultra-affordable device that it is allegedly prepping (a $64 entry-level handset). As such, the device is rumored to be fitted with some pretty low-end hardware specs, which is pretty logical given the rumored price tag.
Today, however, we have information about a new Xiaomi device that just popped up on GFXBench, the graphics benchmark database. Rolling under the "Ferrari" codename, the handset is a mid-range device fitted with an octa-core, 64-bit Snapdragon 615 chipset, a 4.9" 1080p display at the front, and 2GB of RAM.
The rest of the specs sheet suggests that this mysterious Xiaomi phone also comes with 16GB of native storage, a 12MP rear camera, and a 5MP camera at the front. The device runs on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.
Judging by the specs, the Xiaomi Ferrari may (or may not) end up being another member of Xiaomi's Redmi portfolio, though this is not very likely. (as a refresher, the Xiaomi Redmi 2 was announced roughly two months ago). Who knows, the Ferrari might be the pioneer of a new Xiaomi device lineup.
