Recently, Xiaomi officially announced that it will officially release the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 on August 10. This smartphone will also serve as the flagship model of the second half of the year. As of now, there are no official details about this smartphone. All we have for now are just leaks and speculations. According to @DCS, the first “close to official” information of this device appeared online. This is the official GeekBench 5 running score of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4.
According to the report, this flagship smartphone uses a 3.0Hz chip. This is obviously the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ SoC and the MIX 4 will be the first to use this chip. The running score shows that this device has a single-core score of 863 while the multi-core score is 3181. Interestingly, the single-core score of this device is lower than many Snapdragon 888 smartphones. For instance, the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G has a single-core score of 912 on Geekbench 5. However, on the multi-core end, the MIX 4 beats the SD888. The Galaxy S21 multi-core score is 2982 which is a far cry from the SD888+.
In terms of specifications, the Snapdragon 888+ is still built on the 5nm process. It uses a three-cluster architecture which includes a Cortex X1 super core, Cortex A78 large core, and Cortex A55 core. The super core CPU frequency increases from 2.84GHz (SD888) to 3.0GHz (SD888+). There are three 2.4GHz Cortex A78 and four 1.8GHz Cortex A55 energy-efficient cores. The GPU is still Adreno 660. In addition, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ has greatly improved its AI performance. This chip comes with Qualcomm’s sixth-generation AI Engine engine, and its AI computing power hits 32 TOPS. This is better than Snapdragon 888’s 26TOPS.
In addition to Android’s strongest chip, previous reports reveal that the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 will come with a storage combination of up to 12GB + 256GB. This is a top specification among the current mainstream flagships, and its performance is in the top echelon of the industry.
In addition, in terms of charging specifications, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 will also bring a more top-level configuration. The reports so far show that this device will come with a 5000 mAh super battery. This battery will be similar to the silicon oxide negative battery on the previous Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. Furthermore, we expect the charging capacity to upgrade to 120W fast charging. On the wireless end, this flagship will come with a 70W or 80W wireless fast charging capacity. This will be the fastest charging capacity (wired or wireless) in the industry.
