A mysterious Xiaomi phone that is codenamed as Riva has appeared on Geekbench. The benchmark listing has revealed some of its specs which indicate that it could be the next budget phone from the company.
According to Geekbench listing, the Xiaomi Riva is driven by a quad-core processor that works at 1.4 GHz along with 3 GB of RAM and it is running on Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS. On the single-core test, the mysterious device has scored only 560 points whereas, on multi-core test, it has recorded a score of 916 points.
The above scores are quite low and it’s lower than the Redmi 4A’s score on Geekbench. The Redmi 4A is the latest entry-level phone from Xiaomi that is driven by Snapdragon 425 chipset which has score 670 and 1735 points on single core and multi-core tests, respectively. Hence, there is a speculation that Xiaomi Riva could be a lower variant of Redmi 4A or its successor edition. It may be driven by the same Snapdragon 425 chipset or Snapdragon 427 SoC. With such low specs on the Xiaomi Riva, it could end up as the cheapest offering from the company.

It seems that these two devices are different.
