Chinese manufacturer, Xiaomi, will release the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 on August 10th. This flagship smartphone will be one of the first devices to use the Snapdragon 888+ SoC. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 with the codename “Xiaomi 2106118C” or “Odin” made its first appearance on GeekBench yesterday. The first listing shows that the running score (single-core) of this device is 863 while the multi-core score is 3181. From the result, the single-core score is lower than many Snapdragon 888 smartphones. However, the multi-core score is higher than many Snapdragon 888 smartphones. The Snapdragon 888+ is supposed to beat the Snapdragon 888 in all ramifications so these scores came as a surprise. Nevertheless, the GeekBench database has since gotten over 20 test results for the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4.
The best results show that the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 with Snapdragon 888+ has a single-core score of 1151. On the multi-core end, this device has a score of 3636. This shows that the Snapdragon 888+ clearly beats the Snapdragon 888. The latter’s single-core score barely goes above 1050 while its multi-core score hardly crosses 3400.
According to the report, this MIX 4 uses a 3.0Hz chip. This is obviously the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ SoC. In terms of specifications, the Snapdragon 888+ is still built on the 5nm process. It uses a three-cluster architecture which includes a Cortex X1 super core, Cortex A78 large core, and Cortex A55 core. The super core CPU frequency increases from 2.84GHz (SD888) to 3.0GHz (SD888+). There are three 2.4GHz Cortex A78 and four 1.8GHz Cortex A55 energy-efficient cores. The GPU is still Adreno 660. In addition, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ has greatly improved its AI performance. This chip comes with Qualcomm’s sixth-generation AI Engine engine, and its AI computing power hits 32 TOPS. This is better than Snapdragon 888’s 26TOPS.
The GeekBench listing shows that this smartphone will come with up to 12GB of RAM. In addition, this flagship device will have up to 256GB of internal storage. In addition, in terms of charging specifications, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 will also bring a more top-level configuration. The reports so far show that this device will come with a 5000 mAh super battery. This battery will be similar to the silicon oxide negative battery on the previous Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. Furthermore, we expect the charging capacity to upgrade to 120W fast charging. On the wireless end, Xiaomi may not be able to use above 50W if a new law stands. The speculations so far show that the company will use 70W or 80W wireless charging.
