A device tagged as the Xiaomi Mi3S showed up at the databases of benchmarking app GFXBench, and it has included specs of the supposed device. This is in light of Xioami’s upcoming event on July 22 where they will be expected to launch a new handset – and most people are still not sure if it will be the Mi3S, or the Xiaomi Mi4, the latter also backed by numerous leaks.
But to the point at hand, GFXBench shows a device with a 5-inch display at 1920x1080 native resolution. The spec list also but confirms the leaks that the Mi3S will be coming out with the more powerful Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor with the Adreno 330 GPU, also boasting of a generous 3GB helping of RAM.
There’s a bit of a mix-up with the cameras, with the GFXBench data putting the cameras at 12MP and 7MP, rear and front-facing respectively. The earlier leaks said that the cameras will be at 13MP and 8MP. The data also puts internal storage at 12GB, with whole device running Android 4.4.3 Kitkat.
With Xiaomi’s event coming up in two days, we are really not sure if they will be launching the Mi3S or the Mi4 – or both, for that matter. But we can see the general trending of the smaller China-based manufacturers trying to challenge the big boys in terms of specs and price range. The Mi3S is touted to arrive at around USD$300.
