Qualcomm stuck MWC 2018 attendees utterly off guard with the (imprecise) announcement of a wholly new circle of relatives of smartphone processors geared toward reasonably priced “high-tier” merchandise. After all, the semiconductor large could also be laborious at paintings on its subsequent true flagship SoC, most likely deliberate for an early 2019 release with 5G-ready Snapdragon X50 modem integration.
Along with all that, one very talked-about mid-range Snapdragon “cellular platform” could be getting a sequel quickly, as prompt by means of a cryptic Xiaomi Berlin benchmark. We’ll be fair, we don’t have any concept what authentic title this “Berlin” handset would possibly finally end up wearing.
What we do know, due to initial knowledge published on the Geekbench Browser site, is the mid-end telephone might be packing a Snapdragon 632 processor. That feels like a really perfect candidate for a place between the SDM625-powered Redmi Observe five (or Redmi five Plus) and the Redmi Observe five Professional that pairs a Snapdragon 636 chip with four or 6GB RAM.
Talking of reminiscence, the unreleased SMD632 motherboard is coupled with three gigs of the good things at the Xiaomi Berlin, no less than within the configuration examined by means of Geekbench. That could be an previous pre-launch prototype, nonetheless working Android 7.1.2 Nougat at the tool facet of items, whilst the Snapdragon 632 is dubiously indexed with a hexa-core CPU association, regardless of cheap octa-core expectancies. Finally, even the SDM630 comes with 8 CPU cores, clocked at as much as 2.2 GHz.
