Recently, a smartphone labelled as Xiaomi Strakz was spotted on Geekbench benchmarking platform with Snapdragon 625 and 4 GB of RAM. Today, another phone from the Chinese manufacturer named Xiaomi E6 has appeared on the benchmarking site.
The Xiaomi E6 Geekbench listing reveals that it is fueled by an octa-core processor that clocks at 2.0 GHz. However, the exact model number of processor is not mentioned on Geekbench. It is speculated that the Xiaomi E6 could be powered by the Snapdragon 625 chipset. The SoC of the Xiaomi E6 is accompanied by 3 GB of RAM and the handset is preinstalled with Android 8.1 Oreo.
In single-core test, the Xiaomi E6 has salvaged 841 points whereas it has scored 4259 points in multi-core test. Since these scores are similar to the Geekbench scores of the Xiaomi Mi 5X, it seems that the smartphone could be powered by the good old Snapdragon 625. Xiaomi E6 could be yet another Redmi series phone from the company or it could be an international version of the recently unveiled Redmi S2.
Apart from Xiaomi E6 and Strakz, other phones such as Xiaomi Cactus and Xiaomi Cereus have also appeared on Geekbench. It is speculated that Cactus and Cereus models could be the two variants of the rumored Xiaomi Redmi 5X smartphone
At present, Xiaomi seems to be focused on the upcoming 2018 Annual Product Launch event that will be held at Shenzhen. Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has confirmed that a variety of new devices will be announced at the upcoming event. The company is yet to reveal the date of the event. It is speculated that Xiaomi may announce products like Xiaomi Mi 7, Xiaomi Mi 8th Anniversary Edition smartphone and Mi Band 3 fitness tracker.
