Xiaomi has announced that it will be unveiling its in-house chipset a week from now on February 28. The SoC that so far goes by the unconfirmed name Pinecone may very well debut on the upcoming Mi 5c, which has also shown up at the rumor mill on a number of occasions since last fall.
Today's one of those instances and word on the midranger comes from the GeekBench database, where the phone goes by the much cuter Meri (though obviously Mi 5c is a lot more meaningful). There are three recent entries, one from today, two from a couple of days ago, and those come on top of two more from last October.
Today's scores of 679/2421 (single-/multi-core GeekBench 4) match one of the entries from the other day, but both are way short of what the phone posted on the second run from two days ago. If we're to assume that 680/2400 are ballpark of the actual figures to expect from commercial Mi 5c units once the phone starts shipping, that would put it behind our recent midrange chip of choice - the Snapdragon 625, which averages 840/3100 in the same benchmark. Not at all bad for a first try, though.
Xiaomi nice mobile
Xiaomi, do release it with Global ROM. The Mi4C was an excellent device just missing Global ROM.
People saying this is your pinecone? Do you remember when your very own OnePlus 3 was demolished by a dual core iPhone 6s Plus during speed test on PhoneBuff(Search it on youtube)? that phone also have lower numbers in these tests. Why not wait...
