In September, Xiaomi Mi 5 Antutu benchmark score got leaked that scored over 73,000.
A Xiaomi Smartphone with “Gemini” Code name has been tested on Geekbench 3 on 12 November, and this model features Snapdragon 820 (MSM8996) SoC and 3GB RAM. Xiaomi Gemini should certainly be Mi 5.

Xiaomi Mi 5 was rumored to feature 4GB RAM, but it seems it would still feature 3GB RAM like Mi 4. In terms of storage capacity, we expect Mi 5 to have 32GB/64GB storage option. Xiaomi could skip 16GB option this time for its high-end smartphone. It may feature a 16-megapixel rear camera with OIS and 8-megapixel front shooter. RAM is not everything to perform any smartphone well, it also depends on chipset and the optimization of the system.
