New Xiaomi Smartphone codenamed Altun leaked, might use in-house processor



Xiaomi recently mentioned its affordable Redmi series had crossed 110 million handsets in sales globally. Next to the Xiaomi Mi 3 launched in 2013, no other smartphone in Mi series had achieved to offer high-end specifications at such a low price. But the Redmi series have set a new benchmark for the entry-level segment and every year the company is providing better specifications than their successors and that too at the same price.

In 2016, the company had been even more aggressive and launched its first metal build smartphone Redmi Note 3 at Rs. 10,000 and is also the first Redmi device to feature a fingerprint sensor. With the recently launched Redmi 3s, the company brought the metallic body and fingerprint to a $100 smartphone. As of now only the Redmi Note 3 is available outside of China, and one variant of the Redmi 3 is expected to launch soon in India.

Apart from all these launched devices, the company is rumored to bring five more smartphones in the second half of 2016. The devices codenamed MarkW, Capricorn, Mi Pro along with the rumored Mi 5S or the Mi Note 2 will be made official by the end of this year. And today a new Xiaomi device codenamed Altun is spotted on Geekbench with entry-level specifications, which we expect to be a new device in the Redmi series.

While the Geekbench lists the processor for every device, the Altun listing lacks the chipset name. We guess this device to use the Xiaomi in-house processor; it comes with a octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz. The device also includes 2GB of RAM and runs on latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. It might also sport polycarbonate shell to make it much more affordable than the Redmi 3 and Redmi 3S which are priced at 699 Yuan.
