It's worth noting that the AnTuTu benchmark scores don't necessarily guarantee a smartphone's real world performance.

When Qualcomm took the centre stage at the ongoing CES trade show, it affirmed that the Snapdragon 835 is built on the 10nm FinFET fabrication process by Samsung, and is capable of delivering 27 percent higher performance while consuming 40 percent less power than the Snapdragon 821. "The combination of the CPU, GPU, DSP and software framework support in the Snapdragon 835 offers a highly-capable heterogeneous compute platform," the company said in a release.

Talking about Xiaomi Mi 6, it is expected to be offered in 128GB and 256GB storage variants in Black, White, and Blue colour options. It will reportedly have a dual-tone design similar to the iPhone 5s, while the camera and dual-LED flash could be situated at the top right corner.
