Updated | Xiaomi Mi 11 posts very strong new Geekbench results as alleged teaser trailer for the flagship turns up on Chinese social media
It’s not the first time a supposed Xiaomi Mi 11 smartphone has been found on Geekbench, and yet again the results are very impressive for an Android-based device. Tech leaker Abhishek Yadav has detailed four Mi 11 appearances that give average results of almost 1,132 points in the single-core benchmark and 3,734 points for the multi-core test. A quick glance at Geekbench’s Android charts reveals just how good this Mi 11 (or Mi 11 Pro) with Snapdragon 888/Adreno 660 is.
The not too shabby OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro are the current leaders in single-core tests, with scores of 872 points and 886 points, respectively. These smartphones utilize the Snapdragon 865 chip. We’ve measured a Xiaomi Black Shark 3 managing 924 points (Geekbench 5.1-5.3). As for the multi-core chart, the same two OnePlus devices top that with 3,199 points and 3,129 points. Once again, our tested Black Shark 3 topped those with 3,449 points (SD 865). However, the alleged Mi 11 results outscore all of those marks.
With a recorded 12 GB RAM and Android 11 also involved, you would expect chart-topping results from the Xiaomi Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro. Future buyers will also be expecting the upcoming flagship smartphones to be as devastating in their looks as they are in their performance, and it seems one of the devices has been teased in a short video clip that turned up on Weibo. It’s unclear whether this is a fan-made effort or an official promo (see below), but it only reveals the already known distinctive main camera housing on the rear anyway.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 series is rumored to have a launch date of December 29 and may consist of three separate devices: the Mi 11, Mi 11 Pro, and a possible Mi 11 Pro+. Speculative domestic prices have been put forward, with one source predicting 3,999 yuan (US$611) for the regular model and 5,299 yuan (US$809) for the base variant of the Pro model. International prices for these Xiaomi flagship smartphones would obviously be much higher though.
