Geekbench went to the mysterious Xiaomi smartphone code-named Kenzo, which is likely to hit the market as Xiaomi Redmi 3. The most puzzling is applied to the central unit, as the benchmark indicates the Snapdragon 617, but deny ago achieved its results.
Xiaomi Redmi 2 came on the market in January this year and since then the producer is true presented new and improved versions of the model, but he did not live to formal successor. Probably is just Redmi 3 went on Geekbench , where he hid under the code name Kenzo. According to the benchmark smartphone will be equipped with a Snapdragon 617, however, they contradict the results it achieved.According to Geekbench Xiaomi Kenzo will operate under the control of the Qualcomm marked with the code name msm8952, which is assigned to just a Snapdragon 617 . And everything would be fine if the system is not allowed to score 1,420 points in a test of one core and 3420 in the test multiple cores that are absolutely beyond the reach of the SoC from Qualcomm. Especially single-core result is nearly twice of what gets in the same assay HTC One A9, also with Snapdragon 617 on board. Fortunately Geekbench also gives us the key to solving this puzzle. In the section describing the processor shall indicate that it is composed of 6 cores. This allows me to presume that used system is a Snapdragon 618, which is composed of two core Cortex-A72, and they already allow you to earn 1,500 test a single core, even at relatively low clock speed (remember that Kirin 950 has 4 such cores clocked 2.3 GHz and scores in this test c. 1800 punk). If it turns out to be true, it Xiaomi Kenzo will be really efficient device off the shelf average. Of course these are just my guesses that do not need to find a basis in reality, so if you have a different opinion on this subject is necessary to let us know in the comments – in the end we are all geeks;) On board described smartphone will also feature 2 GB of memory RAM and Android 5.1 Lollipop, which in the case of Xiaomi devices is not more of a problem, because the overlay that producer completely changing the face of the green robot. Unfortunately, at this moment we do not have other information about Xiaomi Kenzo, but we will track it for you on a regular basis.
