Mysterious high-end Xiaomi device spotted on GFXBench

Xiaomi Jason on GFXBench
A mysterious device, expected to be the Mi 6c, was spotted on GFXBench today. It was listed as carrying 6GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and the Snapdragon 660.

Xiaomi’s Mi Max 2 launched last week to intense criticism over the lack of either the Snapdragon 660 or 626 processors, as Xiaomi once again chose to go with the Snapdragon 625, a Qualcomm mid-range SoC from 2016.

It looks like the company are set to assuage their angry fans, though, with an unknown device appearing on GFXBench earlier in the day. The device, listed as the Xiaomi Jason, carries a 5.1” FHD display, so there’s a high chance it’s the Mi 6c. There’s also a chance it’s the Redmi Pro 2 but that display size makes it rather unlikely.

Xiaomi’s Mi C product line carry cheaper, versions of their flagships designed specifically for Chinese territories. The Mi 5c, for example, currently costs about $35 less than the regular Mi 5.

What’s intriguing about this one is the presence of the much-heralded Snapdragon 660, Qualcomm’s new mid-range processor that holds its own against last year’s flagship, the Snapdragon 821. Other specifications on the GFXBench listing indicate 6GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and a 12MP rear camera.

Considering the shenanigans accompanying the release of the OnePlus 5, this could very well turn out to be the device with the most bang for your buck this year.
