The device is listed with the model number M2007J1SC and has scored 687,000 points in the test.

According to the source, the device is equipped with an SoC from Qualcomm, likely the Snapdragon 865. It would be the original version of the chipset without the overclocking of Snapdragon 865+. This is something that draws attention since the Asus ROG Phone 3 mounts the more powerful Snapdragon 865+ processor.

While it is unknown what that device would be, it is expected to be developed for the gamer audience. Competing with the new Asus ROG Phone 3 and Lenovo Legion Duel. Therefore, it would make sense for Xiaomi to frame this model in a differentiated lineup.
