Xiaomi usually uses the Snapdragon series of processors in their handset. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer recently made headlines in becoming the first brand to use the Snapdragon 626 chipset which powers the Redmi Note 5 Pro.  Now the company is once again doing it with the new Snapdragon 638 which is labelled SDM638 in the new sighting. A new smartphone powered by the chipset appeared today in benchmarking site GeekBench which is codenamed “Valentino”.

The GeekBench listing mentions the device will be powered by Android 8.1 Oreo coupled with 6GB of RAM. The smartphone managed a score of 1485 in single core test while the multi-core score stands at 5440. The Octa-core Snapdragon 638 powering the smartphone is clocked at 144 GHz. It will be likely consist of atleast two heavy cores like Kyro 260  and equipped with Ardeno 509 or higher.

This is the first time the Qualcomm Snapdragon 638 has been sighted and we are almost tempted to report it as a GeekBench error. If it isn’t, the chipset is likely an improved version of the Snapdragon 636 chipset or an overclocked one. The company has previously updated its Snapdragon 650 series with variants like Snapdragon 652 or 653. So, the chipset existence is likely  genuine.

Coming back to the Valentino smartphone, there is no such device in Xiaomi’s pipeline that fits the description. The company will be launching the Redmi S2 chipset in May 10 which will be powered by the Snapdragon 625 SoC . The Mi 6X or Mi A2 will house the Snapdragon 660 and the Mi 7 is reported to be powered by Snapdragon 845 chipset. We can expect Qualcomm to announce the chipset officially in the upcoming weeks.
