Snapdragon 855-powered Xiaomi Cepheus spotted at Geekbench, likely Mi 9

In two days Xiaomi will unveil a new Redmi phone with a 48MP camera. However, there’s another device in the works – a flagship. The Xiaomi “Cepheus” has swung by Geekbench and it showed what the Snapdragon 855 can do.
If the name “Cepheus” sounds familiar, you may have seen the recent APK-teardown by XDA, which found references to this code name. There was evidence of a 48MP camera, an in-display fingerprint reader and an always on display mode.
So, clearly a Mi flagship and it’s quite possible that this is the Xiaomi Mi 9. The S855 chipset will be used in the 5G version of the Mi Mix 3, though we doubt that Xiaomi will also change the camera – it’s already upgrading the chipset and connectivity.

The “Cepheus” ran Android 9 Pie and packed 6GB of RAM, no huge surprises here (the Mi 8 also had 6GB RAM as standard). The benchmark results are much closer to what we expect from the 855 than the Galaxy S10 Lite score from earlier today.
Anyway, we expect to see the new Redmi phone (two actually, including a Redmi Note) this Thursday. The Xiaomi Mi 9 is probably months away (the Mi 8 was unveiled in May).
