Xiaomi's new device, the Mi A1, has been listed on Geekbench, with its scores and specifications largely being a match to what we saw in the recently released Mi 5X. The A1 is expected to be an Android One device, which means that it will carry stock Android instead of Xiaomi's MIUI skin.

Word of the A1 surfaced a few weeks ago, with images and leaks spotted around the corners of the Internet. The Mi A1 has finally made its trip to popular benchmark platform Geekbench, and while it doesn't set any records—or achieve any novel scores, really—it does confirm some of the rumors floating around.

The Mi A1 was touted to be an Android One phone modeled largely on the newly released Mi 5X. While the Mi 5X isn't the most loved device, it offers a relatively impressive package for its price tag. The A1 is supposed to be, for all intents and purposes, an Mi 5X carrying Google's stock Android software. As an Android One phone, it effectively comes under Google's wings, which means it will receive software updates more reliably than Xiaomi's regular MIUI-powered devices.

The listing shows a single core score of 852 and a 3837 multicore one. More importantly, it confirms the SoC that will power the phone, with clock speeds matching what we know of the Snapdragon 625. It's also shown as featuring 4 GB of RAM, and running on Android 7.1.2.

We'll be sure to keep you updated if any new information comes up.
