Xiaomi Libra Hits Geekbench Sporting Snapdragon 808; Are We Seeing An Affordable Device In Tow?
Before Xiaomi gets down to releasing its flagship smartphone Mi 5, which has been leaked to feature a sub-$450 price tag, the Chinese tech sensation is expected to release a Snapdragon 808 powered handset. Xiaomi Libra is the name being given to the smartphone, though we doubt the company would find inspiration in naming its smartphone based on a zodiac sign. After the release of its Mi Note Pro, which sports a Snapdragon 810, Xiaomi plans on targeting the smartphone crowd that needs a combination of both performance and additional affordability.
Xiaomi Libra Will Also Be Sporting 2 GB Of RAM; Could This Be Xiaomi Mi 4 Pro?
Geekbench holds many secrets concerning the hardware specifications of many handsets and on this occasion, the Chinese smartphone firm might be prepping to release an affordable handset that boasts satisfactory processing capabilities. No release date of Xiaomi Libra has been given but it is possible that the smartphone could be an upgraded version of the company’s Mi 4; possibly a Mi 4 Pro.
Despite the fact that Snapdragon 808 is present, Xiaomi will most likely stamp a much more affordable price tag as compared to the one present on LG’s G4 (which also sports the same mobile chipset). According to the details present on the report, the smartphone is running Android Lollipop 5.1.1 on top of Xiaomi’s custom MIUI interface.
While we were getting geared up to see Snapdragon 820 and its 3.0 GHz Kyro cores in action, Xiaomi Libra gets thrown in our direction. Before we jump to conclusions, we will have to treat this report with a grain of salt. With Xiaomi Mi 5 slated for a November release, the tech firm might also be planning to cater to the mid-tier smartphone crowd with an affordable handset.
Unfortunately, this is all the information that we could gather from the report. Once more details exhume, you guys will be the first to get updated.
