Xiaomi Mi Note Plus Could Be the Company’s Second Snapdragon 810 Phone

A few months ago, Xiaomi launched the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro flagship smartphones, and the latter was actually quite interesting.

The Mi Note Pro is the second handset to be announced with Qualcomm’s controversial Snapdragon 810 platform and taking advantage of a consistent 4GB of RAM internally. While we are yet to see the Mi Note Pro arrive on the market, it appears that the Chinese up-and-coming device maker is prepping another powerful phone with similar specifications from the Note lineup.

Xiaomi might be looking to extend its Mi Note lineup
Gizmo China reports that the unannounced Xiaomi Mi Note Plus has popped up in benchmarks, revealing the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor that is used to power the Mi Note Pro. On top of that, the handset is also paired with 4GB of RAM. The phone has been spotted running Android 5.0.2 Lollipop out of the box. Judging by the name, the Mi Note Plus could be the top-end model in the company’s Note lineup. After the launch of the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro, a device with the same name popped up in the AnTuTu benchmarks, revealing specs identical to those of the Mi Note Pro. So at the time, it was speculated the name was mistakenly spelled.

The Mi Note Plus also popped up in GeekBench and scored somehow similar to the HTC One M9, which runs on the same platform. In the single-core test, the mystery device scored 1235 points, while in the multi-core test it managed to snatch 4039 points. By comparison, the HTC One M9 managed to grab 1282 points in single-core and 3929 in the multi-core tests.

The Mi Note Plus' launch date remains a mystery
For the time being, there’s no indication of when Xiaomi might be looking to make the mystery Mi Note Plus official. Just a few hours ago, the phone maker introduced a special variant of its Mi Note smartphone, called the Mi Note Natural Bamboo Edition, which, as you might have guessed, comes with a bamboo rear cover. But the company didn’t say anything at all about the Mi Note Plus. The device maker might talk about it after the Mi Note Pro makes it out into retail. In all possibility, we might be dealing with a version of the Mi Note Pro that comes with a larger display (6-inch maybe).
