Xiaomi seems to be on a roll. After announcing a bunch of phones, the Chinese company is gearing up to out another handset. A mystery device, codenamed Chiron from Xiaomi has been spotted on GFXBench. What’s intriguing is the device comes with a 5.6-inch screen in an unusual aspect ratio, which points at a bezel-less display. It could be a compact variant of the recently launched Mi Mix 2, outlined by the renowned French Industrial designer Philippe Starck.
The Xiaomi Chiron sports the same flagship Qualcomm chipset Snapdragon 835, seen on Mi Mix 2. It is coupled with a whopping 6 GB of RAM to be able to match the performance of the fastest production car, the Bugatti Chiron, where it derives inspiration. Being devoid of an expandable card slot it comes with 256 GB of internal storage.
The phone is said to have a 12 MP rear camera. At this point, it is not clear whether it is going to be a dual-lens setup. It is said to support 4K video recording though. There is a 5 MP front shooter for selfie-aficionados. The phone is likely to launch with Android Nougat with Xiaomi’s own MIUI 9 on top.
