Since the purported Xiaomi Mi 5 release date of Dec. 3 has surfaced, tech enthusiasts are eagerly waiting for its release. Rumors are also indicating that Xiaomi will also release the Mi Pad 2 tablet in December. Since the GeekBench reports of both the devices have cropped up, December release date for both the devices seems to be imminent.
The Xiaomi Mi 5 GeekBench benchmark report clearly stated that it will be coming with the Snapdragon 820 SoC and 3 GB of RAM. The report has revealed that the new Qualcomm chip has recorded scores of 2140 and 4762 on single-core and multi-core tests, respectively. The GeekBench report has also revealed that the Mi 5 will be shipping with Snapdragon 820 chipset. The handset has been listed with a codename of Xiaomi Gemini.
The well-received Xiaomi MI Pad tablet is likely to be succeeded by the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 tablet in the next month. On GeekBench, the tablet has recorded single-core and multi-core scores of 985 and 3268, respectively.
Instead of the Tegra K1 2.2 GHz quad-core processor that powered the first generation tablet, the Mi Pad 2 is likely to be powered by Intel Atom X5-Z58500 that can reach a maximum processing speed of 2.24 GHz through its quad-core processor. It will be supported by 2 GB of RAM and will be running on Android 5.1 Lollipop OS. Phone Radar has reported that the tablet may feature both Windows and Android operating systems.
Rumors have it that the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 tablet was certified in September. It is going to again feature a 7.9-inch display. The Mi Pad tablet came with plastic build, but its successor is expected to arrive with metallic frame along with glass on its rear panel.
