Xiaomi M2 Benchmarks Leaked Leaves Samsung Galaxy S3 in the dust!

Leaked benchmark results show the new Xiaomi Mi2 will be more powerful than Samsung’s top of the range Galaxy S3 handset!

We’ve got a lot of expectations for the next generation Xiaomi Chinese phone, but one thing we did expect would be the fact the new Mi2 be a beast of a phone which out performs even the Samsung Galaxy S3!

While we’ve known for sometime that the Mi2, or M2 as it may still be called, will be the second Chinese phone to use a quad-core CPU behind the MX 4-core, we haven’t really had any idea of just how powerful it will be up until today!

According to a report over at Xiaomifans, leaked documents from Xiaomi show that the internally named Xiaomi Mi2 is running a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8064 quad-core processor and according to leaked quadrant results easily blows away the Samsung Galaxy S3 and it’s quad-core 1.43GHZ Exynos 4412 cpu.

This isn’t only bad news for Samsung, who are currently investing alot in to promoting the S3 in China, but it also bad news for Meizu and their 4-core MX which runs the same Samsung chip as the Galaxy S3!


Xiaomi Mi2 vs Samsung Galaxy S3 vs HTC One X

xiaomi mi2 vs samsung galaxy s3 benchmarksAlthough it’s not clear from the photos here (I’m currently looking for a larger image) the Quadrant score for the Xiaomi Mi2 is a whopping 7767, while the Galaxy S3 5480 and the Tegra 3 powered HTC ONE X scores only 3631 points.

Vellamo scores also confirm the Xiaomi M2 is a capable of driving circles around the S3 and HTC One X with a score of 2530 points. The S3 and One X score only 2072 and 1660 points.

NenaMark2 results have the new Xiaomi phone running at a huge 60.1fps, while the others trial behind with the Samsung Galaxy SIII running at 58.7fps and HTC ONE X managing only 46.5fps.

From these performance figures alone it looks like the Xiaomi M2 quad-core is going to be THE phone to have, and might be enough to push me away from the Mx 4-core for my next phone!

Best of all though is that more reports are still suggesting the Mi2 will cost just 2600 Yuan! Making the next generation Xiaomi phone one of the cheapest quad-core Android phones on the market and the most powerful!

As an extra treat we also have the latest spy photo of the Xiaomi M2 also which claims to show the camera shutter button on the new quad-core Chinese phone. If this photo turn out to be the real deal the Xiaomi M2 is going to have a rather rounded profile and could look like those MX styled leaked images we showed you here.

    It could be also for the screen. Perhaps the screen has less resolution so the quad core processor can afford it easier and get bigger benchmarks?
    Just saying, i don’t know the xiaomi m2 resolution so i could be totally wrong.

      Hi Francis.R extremely good point! I’m going to do some digging to see if I can uncover the res..

    That because the APQ8064 Is built on the Cortex A15 architecture where as the Tegra 3 chips and the Exynos 4410,4412 and others…….. are built of the Cortex A9 architecture!!
    Thats why the Xiaomi phone sporting the Qualcomm APQ8064 is better!!
    Plus the A15 architecture is better than the A9 in some fields like Power Consumption!!

      Awesome! Better power + longer battery life = my possible future phone!

    The real question is battery life. It’s easy to put in a faster processor, but how many minutes will this thing last on a charge?

    • August 4, 2012

      Hey Simon, yep battery life is a concern and something which Chinese companies don’t seem to address all that often. However the M2 is rumored to have up to a 2100mAh battery which should offer enough juice for a day or so.

    Yeah, me too saw some amazing high score on antutu benchmarks naming some miMxxx somthing handset for a brief period , then it disappeared.

    But I got a feeling that the first generation of A15 will not be that efficient compare to matured A9 like 4412 etc. Just a thought. May be I’m wrong.

    I think the next iteration of A15 QUAD’s should be a thing to watch for, Or may be Nvidia’s Wayne+Gray or whatever they call it.

    Best time to be a geek 🙂

    Can any of these phones be used with Verizon in the USA? Are the radios proper for our frequencies? Probably not 🙁

    M2 doesn’t support LTE in the states, is WCDMA support verizon? GSM definitely support ATT though. Maybe I should look at M3 to support LTE?
