Upcoming Xiaomi Flagship with SD855 Spotted in Geekbench.

Xiaomi recently spun off Redmi as an independent sub-brand. The Chinese manufacturer is all set to launch a smartphone with a 48MP camera later this week in its home market. Recently a new report surfaced that Xiaomi’s Redmi is developing a new high-end smartphone that will have the 48MP camera.

A new device codenamed “Cepheus” now appeared in benchmarking site GeekBench, sporting Snapdragon 855 SoC. The Redmi flagship was reported to come with SD675 SoC, but with this as they’re calling the phone a flagship and the reported pricing was set to 2,999 Yuan, it wouldn’t be surprising if this is the Redmi flagship they’re going to launch in January 10th afterall.

According to the GeekBench listing, Xiaomi “Cepheus” will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. It achieved a score of 3,475 and 10,872 points on the single core and multi-core test. Considering it will be a flagship, it comes with only 6GB RAM, which is considerably less compared to other flagship smartphones this year. It will run MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie out of the box.

From a previous report by the folks at XDA developers, it will sport a dual camera setup of a 48MP primary camera and a secondary sensor with lower resolution. It is expected to have an in-display fingerprint sensor along with the company’s Always on Display feature.

Currently the company is rumoured to be working on two devices on Mi series: Mi 9 and Mi Mix 4. So there is also a possibility that Xiaomi “Cepheus” may be one of the devices. Last year, the Mi Mix 2S was launched before the Mi 8 which means we may see the Mi Mix 4 before the Mi 9 this year. The company is yet to officially announce the smartphone which we expect it to be soon considering the device appreance on the benchmarking website.
