During the Snapdragon 845 unveiling, Xiaomi stated that a high-end phone was going to be announced in the near future and it would be packing Qualcomm’s latest SoC. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s has been under the radar for quite some time now and if these benchmarks are to become the mouthpiece of the upcoming flagship, then we will have a real mobile powerhouse on our hands that also sports a stellar design.

Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s AnTuTu score

There are a few important things to note here. First, the latest version of AnTuTu was used and the results are not comparable with older versions. For comparison, a Huawei Mate 10 Pro (Kirin 970) scores around 218,000 on the same version. Also, there’s no confirmation that this is indeed the Mi Mix 2S – benchmarks are easy to spoof.

Though the smartphone has obtained a score of 270,000+ in AnTuTu, there is no way of knowing if these scores were manipulated or not because leaks have surfaced where this kind of activity exists. When compared to the AnTuTu total against an existing Kirin 970 or Snapdragon 835 chipset, the newly leaked result of 270,461 points is around 25 to 30 percent higher.

Xiaomi will be looking to disrupt the spotlight of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus unveiling. It should also be known that Samsung will most likely have bought a sufficient shipment of Snapdragon 845 so while Xiaomi might announce the Xiaomi Mi 7 at MWC 2018, it is not necessary that the flagship is going to be ready for sale in the coming weeks.
