Xiaomi Mi 5c to be powered by Pinecone SoC, reveals GFXBench listing

Xiaomi’s upcoming Mi 5c smartphone has made an appearance online yet again. This time, the smartphone has been spotted on the GFXBench database, revealing some juicy new details.

According to the GFXBench listing for the Xiaomi “Meri”, the smartphone will feature a 1080 x 1920 Full HD resolution display measuring 5.5-inches diagonally. Since the Mi 5c is expected to be an affordable device, we don’t expect it to be an OLED display but a regular IPS LCD instead.

Under the hood, Xiaomi’s Mi 5c will pack the rumored Pinecone 670 octa-core SoC clocked at 2.1 GHz, based on the ARM Cortex-A53 architecture. For taking care of graphics, the chipset integrates the ARM Mali-T860 GPU. Overall, the Pinecone 670 SoC is expected to perform slightly higher than the highly popular Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC.

The Xiaomi in-house SoC will be paired with 3GB of RAM and an impressive 64GB of onboard storage. The rear camera will be a 12MP unit, capable of capturing videos at up to 1080p Full HD resolution. On the front will be an 8MP selfie camera, also capable of 1080p video capture. In terms of software, the Mi 5c prototype caught on GFXBench was running on Xiaomi’s MIUI OS, based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. This clearly suggests the Mi 5c will be shipped with Android Nougat out of the box when it goes on sale. Unfortunately, there is still no info on when the rumored smartphone will be made official.
