Xiaomi has come to rely on head start it gets from using latest and competent chipsets well ahead in advance of the competition. Quite recently, it became the first OEM to use Snapdragon 636, and now, a new Geekbench listing reveals that it’s already testing Snapdragon 638 for an upcoming phone. The Snapdragon 638 sounds like an upgraded Snapdragon 636 variant and is yet to be officially announced by Qualcomm.

Snapdragon 638 Benchmark score

Codenamed Valentino, the new Xiaomi phone scored 1485 in single-core test and 5440 in multi-core test. The results are certainly impressive for a mid-range SoC and clearly hint at the presence of custom Kryo cores. According to the listing, the Snapdragon 638 will have a base frequency of 1.44GHz and it will be accompanied by 6GB of RAM on Xiaomi Valentino. Most likely, the software on the phone will be Android 8.0 Oreo-based MIUI 9.

As of now, we haven’t heard of any upcoming phone that will be powered by the said SoC, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the new chip makes it to Mi Max 3.

The next from Xiaomi will be Snapdragon 625 powered Redmi S2, which is expected to make it to India as well. The Redmi S2 will go official on Thursday, May 10. The affordable S2 will be similar to Mi 6X in terms of looks, include a 5.99-inch HD+ IPS LCD display (18:9), and employ a 3080mAh battery.

Other Redmi S2 features include 16MP selfie camera, Android 8.1 Oreo-based MIUI 9, dedicated card slot, and 12MP+5MP dual rear cameras.
