WCDMA Snapdragon 800 Xiaomi Mi3 Antutu benchmarks running Android 4.3!


Anyone Xiaomi fan worth his/her salt will tell you that 1) All current Qualcomm Xiaomi phones run Android 4.1.1, and 2) the phone they are all waiting for is the Snapdragon 800 Mi3! But these points could change very soon!

Today 2 lots of Antutu benchmarks from the Xiaomi Mi3 been published, both of them from the still unreleased Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 model. More interestingly both of these machines are running MIUI based on Android 4.3!

Xiaomi fans have been quick to point out that the Snapdragon 800 Antutu benchmarks are lower than expected, the first test resulted in a score of 32,666 (well below Xiaomi’s claims) while the second score was a more respectable 36,294.

Chinese sites have theorised the low scores could be from pre-production phones running the older MSM8974 version of the Snapdragon 800 rather than the more powerful MSM8974AB which Xiaomi are waiting for (and what is causing the delays), but could Xiaomi be using the delay in production to bring Android 4.3 to the phone and this is what is causing the lower scores?

More importantly the emergence of these Antutu scores could be the first step to the WCDMA Mi3 going in to production!

    if you had told people two years ago 32666 was a disappointing antutu result… they’d fall off their chair.

      32k is typical for Snapdragon 800. Mi3 will use the slightly overclocked version of Snapdragon 800 (I think it’s the AB version or something), so people expected more 🙂

      • October 30, 2013

        32k is more than enough really, but Xiaomi also claimed 36k at the launch and this is the type of thing which will upset some customers (doesn’t really bother me though)
