Geekbench reveals the first Mediatek-powered Redmi 5G smartphones
The Redmi Note 9 series is available globally but these handsets are yet to debut in China. According to recent leaks and rumors, it may not launch in this region at all. Instead, the brand might be unveiling handsets with a similar design but different specs along with support for 5G. These alleged smartphones with model numbers M2004J7AC and M2004J7BC are being rigorously tested on Geekbench.1 of 2
The device with model number M2004J7AC was already spotted on TENAA revealing its entire specifications. Now, it has been benchmarked along with M2004J7BC.
Interestingly both of them have similar specs according to the Geekbench listing. The only difference between them is the name of the motherboard, which happens to be ‘atom’ and ‘bomb’ respectively.
Apart from that, both are powered by the same MediaTek MT6875 octa-core processor clocked at 2GHz. This SoC could be the recently announced Dimensity 800 or the yet to announce Dimensity 820.
Further, the variant that was tested for these two handsets has 8GB RAM and runs Android 10. However, there will be variants with 6GB RAM as per TENAA listing.
As far as scores are concerned, both are rated similarly by Geekbench because they literally have the same processor.

According to the TENAA listing, these phones will have 6.57-inch OLED display, FHD+ (1080 x 2400 pixels) resolution, dew-drop notch, in-screen fingerprint sensor, triple camera setup, up to 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM, microSD card slot, 4,420 mAh battery, and 22.5W fast charging.
We believe this could be the ‘super performance’ smartphones teased by Redmi GM Lu Weibing yesterday. He even shared a camera sample today, which could have come from any of the above two models mentioned above.
