New arrival at the popular GFXBench is showing yet another Xiaomi device and the mysteriously called “Land” model could very well mean the coming facelift of the Xiaomi Redmi 3 lineup. Judging by the specs it’s very likely we are seeing the future Xiaomi Redmi 3A so let’s take a look at it.
The featured phone is going to be a 5-inch model with HD resolution 1280×720 pixels and utilizing octa-core processor Snapdragon 435 (MSM8940) clocked at 1.4 GHz. This CPU brings along the Adreno 505 graphics, integrated X8 LTE modem with LTE Cat.7 and the support for Qualcomm’s fast charge QC 3.0. We can also see 3 GB RAM, 16 GB of storage and Android 6.0.1 on the device so pretty reasonable specs for the budget device. Cameras are yet unknown so we have to wait for more info about them later on.
Even though the GFXBench is not without flaws and errors (famous stubborn insistance on alleged 4.7-inch with some older Meizu models) its usually more or less correct. So we can pencil in the imminent arrival of the Xiaomi Redmi 3A model with expected price tag hovering around the 599 yuan range (92$).
