The leaked images as spotted by AndroidPure also show a comparison AnTuTu score between Xiaomi Meri and LG V10, in which the former manages to triumph in many categories. Note that the LG V10 is a high-end smartphone currently available in Korea for 700,000 Won, which roughly translates to Rs 41,100 approximately. The categories include RAM in which the Xiaomi Meri scored 4,845 while LG V10 scored 3,948. The other categories include CPU and Data process along with UX I/O performance. The Xiaomi Meri also beats the LG V10 in AnTuTu’s both 3D Garden and 3D Marooned tests. 3D Garden checks the smartphone s game performance and 3D Marooned checks the smartphone s limiting performance. The Xiaomi Meri scored 8,998 and 11,184 in 3D Garden and 3D Marooned respectively.

Among the images revealed, the image of the back of Xiaomi Meri is akin to what was revealed initially. However, with the contradicting information, we advise that this information be taken with a grain of salt.
