Xiaomi's upcoming Mi3S flagship goes through AnTuTu, reveals its high-end innards

Xiaomi's upcoming Mi3S flagship goes through AnTuTu, reveals its 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.
