The discovery of a Xiaomi phone with a model number rumored to be that of the Mi 11 Pro on Geekbench might normally be welcome news. However, the report proved more alarming in this case, as it alleged the device had the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ SoC instead of the expected Snapdragon 888. However, it has since been debunked by another popular name in tech leaks.

Xiaomi has now released its flagship Mi 11, and is expected to follow it up soon with a Pro version of the same phone. According to its latest leaks, it will pack the new 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN2 sensor into a rear panel that will escalate the OEM's current square-camera-hump trend rapidly.

The reliable tipster Digital Chat Station also suggests that the Mi 11 Pro will be the second of a triad of Xiaomi phones with the Snapdragon 888 processor. They allegedly have the model numbers M2102K1C, M2011J18 and M2102K1AC, the latter of which has just popped up on Geekbench.

Therefore, when 91Mobiles picked up on this new listing, it ran with it as a putative Mi 11 Pro, as it might have proven that this upcoming phone would launch with at least 8GB of RAM and Android 11 (presumably the latest form of MIUI 12).

However, the page in question also clearly demonstrated that the device ran on the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+. While this flagship-alternative is a decent chipset, it - as the Geekbench results clearly demonstrate - is nowhere near the level of 2021 Qualcomm premium silicon.

Then again, potentially disappointed Xiaomi fans can breathe a sigh of relief, as the leaker Sudhanshu Ambhore was quick to correct the article on the point that the "M2102K1AC" is not the Mi 11 Pro. In fact, as the tipster points out, its Geekbench listing also clearly contains the code-name cezanne, denoting the Redmi K30 Ultra - which does indeed run on the 1000+.

Therefore, Ambhore now believes that some developer out there has set out to mis-label their K30 Ultra before submitting it to the benchmarking site, for whatever reason. 91Mobiles has subsequently amended its piece, leaving the scope for an 888-powered Mi 11 Pro - not to mention Ultra - to debut later this year intact.
