Mystery Xiaomi device running Nougat appears on GFXBench

This one sounds interesting I guess. A mystery Xiaomi device appeared a couple of hours ago on the GFXBench database, running on Android 7.0 Nougat with really impressive (albeit confusing) specs.

Gizchina News of the week

The listing mentions a Xiaomi smartphone with a 5.7 inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. It also states that the phone uses a Qualcomm hexa-core SoC with an Adreno 510 GPU, which is used by a Snapdragon 650 SoC – the same one that Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 uses!

According to the benchmark listing, the mystery Xiaomi device features a 16-megapixel snapper on its back, while a 5-megapixel camera is placed on its front side. I know that all of the above seem to be a bit confusing and not… accurate, so we face a dilemma: is this a Redmi Note 3 smartphone that runs on Android 7.1.1 and its specs have been intentionally altered, or is it a completely new Xiaomi smartphone that will soon be unveiled?

What do you think guys?

    A quick google search shows that hexa core means 6 cores, like the SD650. Probably the Redmi Note 3 Max because of the 5.7 display.

    Hexa core means 6 core. 10 core is deca core. Please get it right! This is likely redmi note 4 max or xiaomi max mini.

      Yeah, right..that’s a really “smart” comment, congrats. A device with 5.5 – 5.7 inch screen fits in a grown man’s pocket without any problems. All the rest can use a bag or something should they need a phablet. Then again, no one pointed a gun at your head to buy a big screen phone, if you don’t need one don’t get one..

    Since gfx is everything but new to bugs about screen misures, I’d go with note 3 pro with a nougat rom… It would make sense since it’s beeb their best seller in ages
