Xiaomi Mi 11 shows up on Geekbench running a Qualcomm Snapdragon 875
Thanks to a slew of leaks, we know quite a lot about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875. The upcoming flagship silicon's specifications leaked a few days ago, confirming that it would run ARM's newest Cortex-X1 core, but at relatively conservative speeds. Xiaomi's 2021 flagship -the Xiaomi Mi 11- has just shown up on Geekbench running what is undoubtedly the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875.
The Xiaomi Mi 11's Geekbench listing comes via the Weibo veteran Digital Chat Station, who is the same person who showed us the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875. It manages to net a single-core score of 1,105 and a multi-core score of 3,512. These numbers align perfectly with an earlier Geekbench run of the silicon, although it might be a tad low if others are to be believed. However, its multi-core score seems a tad low, but that is likely due to a host of other factors such as unstable device firmware.
Lastly, Digital Chat Station also uses the Xiaomi Mi 11's Geekbench listing to reconfirm the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875's configuration of one Cortex-X1 (2.8GHz), three Cortex-A78 (2.4GHz), and four Cortex-A55 (1.8GHz) cores. Regardless of how it'll perform in the real world, it is quite clear that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 cannot surpass Apple's silicon. It may have a hard time beating the Exynos 2100, too, as Samsung plans on pushing its Cortex-X1 to over 3.0GHz. That shouldn't perturb Qualcomm too much. After all, Samsung is under pressure regain lost ground after the Exynos 990's inability to stand up to the Snapdragon 865.
Details about the Xiaomi Mi 11 are a tad scarce at the moment. Earlier reports have told us that it will come with a 1440p screen clocked at 120Hz and an under-display selfie camera. Xiaomi will probably throw in Samsung's 108MP ISOCELL HM3 sensor along with an array of supporting lenses for good measure. Although Digital Chat Station has repeatedly insisted that Xiaomi is working on 200W fast charging technology, the chances of it debuting alongside the Xiaomi Mi 11 are somewhat low.
