Xiaomi's next-gen Mi Mix smartphone is expected to be powered with Snapdragon 835 chip featuring an octa-core processor.

A listing at Geekbench browser, spotted by Android Treasure, suggests the Snapdragon 835 processor inside the Mi Mix 2 would be paired with 6GB of RAM. The smartphone would run the Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system.

The smartphone scored 1929 points in single-core performance and 6431 points in multi-core score. Apart from these, the benchmark listing does not reveal much about the hardware features, which had already appeared on several occasions via leaks and rumours.

In February, Xiaomi chief executive officer Lei Jun in a Weibo post, noted that the company was again partnering with French designer Philippe Starck, who introduced the design concept of the Mi Mix 2. It was reported that the company was planning to further increase the screen-to-body ratio of the Mi Mix 2 to 93%, compared to 91.3% ratio of the original Mi Mix.

Other rumoured features of the smartphone include storage options of 128GB and 256GB, a 19 megapixel rear camera and a 13 megapixel front-facing camera. The phone is likely to sport a 6.4in AMOLED screen with resolution at 2540x1440 pixels and a 4,500mAh battery.
